Polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS) is a common hormonal disorder in women which involves ovarian cysts. The cysts may not be harmful but can lead to hormonal imbalance.
Studies say it affects one in every three women, especially in the younger age group. It is also the leading cause of infertility in women.
Yoga affects subtler and deeper than just the physical body level. It helps release deeply stored stress in the system, which can help improve PCOS symptoms. Asanas (yoga postures) designed for PCOS help open up the pelvic area and promote relaxation. Pranayama (breathing exercise) is a powerful technique that help calm the mind. Coupled with these are some soothing meditations that work at a very deep level and help detoxify and de-stress the entire body system. Relaxation is the key in PCOS. You can relax in the asana by coordinating it with breathing.
