Mary Schatz, M.D. Featured in Glamour Magazine

The October 2010 issue of Glamour magazine ran a Health & Body feature on what activities women can safely do during their period and what should be avoided.  Mary Pullig Schatz, M.D., best selling author of Back Care Basics and Relaxation Basics and renowned yoga instructor, suggests that women avoid doing certain yoga poses while menstruating due to the associated health risks.

"Doing upside-down poses can result in heavier bleeding," says Mary Pullig Schatz, M.D., a certified Iyengar yoga instructor. For women with certain medical conditions, it could cause fainting, too. Also, some master yogis teach that during your period, the direction of your body's energy is down and out. So go with the flow (sorry) and skip the inverted stuff.
