Yoga postures for Polycystic ovary syndrome

Asanas (yoga postures) designed for Polycystic ovary syndrome help open up the pelvic area and promote relaxation and pranayamas (breathing exercises) are powerful techniques that help calm the mind. Coupled with these are some soothing meditations that work at a very deep level and help de-toxify and de-stress the entire system.

Relaxation is the key in Polycystic ovary syndrome. You can relax in the asana by coordinating it with breathing. Breathe long and deep as you perform each posture.

Note:
All asanas should be carried out at a professional yoga class, under the guidance of a certified  teacher. Postures that put extreme pressure on the abdomen should not be done by women with PCOS. Make sure you relax while carrying out each of these asanas.

These poses are also helpful in losing weight (which Polycystic ovary syndrome women have a tendency to put on).
