Follicular Phase – Post Menstruation
Following on from last week’s Part One of my Follicular Phase (Post Menstruation) blog, we carry on with the poses for this phase. To recap:
The Follicular phase starts post menstruation cycle, leading up to ovulation. This phase benefits most from postures that support the ovaries to release high quality eggs. This phase also benefits from poses that encourage the development of a thick endometrial lining. We use poses that stimulate the ovaries, improve blood flow to the uterus, calm the nervous system and improve overall health and wellbeing.
After the Warrior II pose, we move onto Pigeon Pose:
Badakonasana / Butterfly
Hold for 3-5 minutes
Hold 5-30 seconds, release, the repeat twice
Lower back release
Repeat 4- 10 times
Stay here for 3 – 15 minutes
Come to sit comfortably or stay lying down on your mat. Place your left hand on your heart and right hand on your belly. Return to the awareness of love and warmth, flowing from your heart down to your ovaries.
Say ‘Om’ once: Acknowledge the universe within and without and set your intentions
With Love, Light and blessings
