Guangzhou. November 20 – 23. 2014.

Free Breast Health class at The Iyengar Yoga Institute, Guangzhou, China.

Around 90 women showed up for this class.

They don’t use the term “breast cancer” here.

caption

The closest I could get to a translation was “breast displaisure”. But whatever term you use, it’s in the increase in China. There seem to be less mammograms here. Many of the women who showed up to this class said they had recieved ultrasounds.

Women’s Workshop

Uttanasana. To minimise abdominal or armpit compression, keep your arms aligned with your torso as you fold forward into the pose.

caption

We imprinted the extension of the abdominal area as a way of dealing with, or avoiding abdominal scar tissue and ovarian cysts.

caption

For an excessive menstrual flow (more likely experienced by women going through menopause), take the support of the bench.

This student found relief for her heavy menstrual flow in this pose.

Baddha Konasana. Sitting with the rope around the mid back trains the back muscles and the spine to play a supporting roll.

This pose helps reduce menstrual pain caused by endometriosis (a well known condition in China).
