It depends on your condition. Talk to your teacher BEFORE starting a class if you have any physical or medical problems. You may need to attend a more specialised class or a class where your medical condition can be accommodated.

N.B. Menstruation – this is of course not a medical problem but there are certain poses that are not suitable, so please consult the teacher before the class begins. The teacher may give you some alternative postures to perform during the class.
