1.for some women,energy levels,body condition,and general health may not be at its best during this period.If energy levels are low, performing any of the strenuous exercises will result in a further decrease in energy and fatigue. it is advisable to practice only exercises that enhanced your overall health, as some yoga exercises can cause counteractive effects like obstructing the menstrual flow.

In classical texts it is suggested that rajaswala nari to undergo isolation for four days and resume her duties normally afterwards, but today life style and comfort zone is different so restrictions are relaxed, as a common fact the days of mensturation call for less sternous exercises.
