Period Pain. You know the feeling, your head is pounding, your back is on fire and your uterus feels like it's trying to kill you from the inside out. While your period cramps may be telling you to stay on the couch and watch Netflix all day - sometimes you just have to move.
Help ease the pain with this 15 minute period pain stretch session by Jacqui Kingswell of The Pilates Class. Not only will it boost circulation, it will also help to relieve the tension caused by cramps. Best of all, the poses are super gentle so won't require too much effort (you could probably do them in bed TBH).
Enjoy adding this to your monthly routine.
