​We have all become masters of yoga lately. We go to yoga studios, take online classes and even collect certificates to become yoga teachers.
However, did you know that yoga is perfect for period pain?
Here's why;
The period pain is caused by excessive compression of the muscles in the uterine wall. During these contractions, the oxygen and blood supply to the uterus decreases, leading to pain. As the chemicals, prostaglandins, produced by the contractions in the uterus increase, so does the pain. 
The miracle of yoga ensures that these chemicals do not increase. Some yoga postures, in particular,  can be one of our most important remedies for pain during this time.
When we do yoga during the period, we can relax both mentally and physically. So, which poses we should do, let's take a look together:
Child's Pose: This pose is called the "resting pose" in yoga. . This pose, also done as a stretching movement after sports activities, relieves stress and activates the neck and back muscles. 
How is it performed?
To begin the child's pose, sit on your knees and place your feet under your hips. Spread your knees as wide as you can, and finally, lean forward as you inhale. Pull your upper body between your legs. Let your forehead touch the floor as you stretch your arms forward. If your period pain is very severe, you can also place a pillow between your knees and apply pressure to your abdomen.

Twist Pose: This is a pose that you can use for abdominal and back pain during your period.
How is it performed?
To do the twist pose, first lie on your back and bend one of your knees. Open your arms in a T-shape. Once you have bent your right knee, bend it to the left and turn your head in the other direction. Likewise, when you bend your left knee to the right, your head should face the other direction. 

Butterfly Pose: The butterfly pose is a pose that increases the release of serotonin in our body and makes us feel physically lighter.
How is it performed?
To do the butterfly pose, sit on a flat surface and bend your knees. Bring your heels to your hips. Open your knees to either side and bring your heels together. Grab your feet and try to bring your knees as close to the floor as possible. Make sure your back is straight as you hold the butterfly pose.

Cobra Pose: Because Cobra Pose promotes circulation in the abdomen, it relieves pain in this area and is good for fatigue and stress.
How is it performed?
For the cobra pose, lie face down on the floor and breathe regularly. Place your hands next to your chest with your palms facing the floor. As you continue to breathe, lean on your hands and lift your chest. The goal of the movement is to go as far back as possible. To do this, bend your elbows slightly and stretch your neck back. 

Bridge Pose: A bridge pose is a pose that ensures the flow of energy in your body, makes all systems work more balanced, and gives your body vitality.
How is it performed?
To do Bridge Pose, lie on your back with your feet hip-width apart. Then bend your knees and place your feet on the floor. In the Bridge Position, place your hands parallel to each other on both sides of your body. Raise your hips with your hands and remain in this position without moving your neck back and forth.
