Kundalini yoga for women

Have been going to an excellent Kundalini class at a nearby yoga studio.  Tonight noticed that the instructor was teaching from kriyas described in a book called I am a Woman.  It looks interesting.  There's also a DVD called  I Am a Woman - Vol 1and a series of lectures called I Am a Woman (General Reader) (Selected Lectures from the Women's Teachings of Yogi Bhajan).  All are going on my wishlist.

One of the kriyas we did the instructor said was good for evening out menstrual problems.  You lay on your back with legs extended in front of you.  Raise one up to the ceiling 90 degrees, then lower it and raise the other.  Alternate back and forth.  It's harder than it sounds.

Also important Kundalini yoga information -- do not do breath of fire while menstruating, and also not during the second half of your cycle when you are TTC.

Yoga is incredibly helpful for the lower back. I found that Leeann Carey has a great free yoga video on pelvic positions that help with alignment. Your readers might want to check it out:
