It is perfectly safe to practice hot yoga during a woman’s monthly cycle. Inverted postures are not recommended during the cycle. There are no inversions in the Hatha Series class so all postures may be safely practiced. During Vinyasa Flow or Fusion classes, avoid postures in which the heart is elevated above the head (“inversions”). As hormones are balanced with a regular yoga practice, uncomfortable symptoms of all women’s stages are lessened, including hot flashes and night sweats.
