Episode 35: The Power of Cycle Aware Movement, Exercise and Yoga (Le’Nise Brothers)

Why do we need to adapt the way we move and exercise throughout the menstrual cycle? In today’s conversation we explore the physical and mental health benefits of cycle-aware movement, and how to adjust the way we exercise throughout the cycle month.
