Baddha konasana- Bound angle pose
Baddha Konasana is practiced by several people, especially the ones with problems of digestion. However, it is also suitable for easing the period cramps.

If you’re feeling fatigued, spend some time in bound angle—it’ll revive your energy too.
Steps- Sit on the floor with your legs stretched forward. Slowly pull your feet towards your pelvis and hold your feet pressing it towards the floor. Keep your back straight with the crown of your head reaching higher. And hold the position as you slowly breathe in and out for a few minutes.
Supta Baddha Konasana- Reclined Bound Angle
Supta Baddha Konasana is pretty similar to Baddha Konasana, you just have to lean back rather than forward. It is best to resolve period-induced anxiety and stress. Period pain and all the hassle may make you go crazy sometimes. But, with this yoga asana, you can relive all those pain and relax. As you lean on your back in this pose, the abdominal muscles relax which eases the period cramps.

Relieving your cramps is important, but so is having peace of mind free from any sort of distractions and distress. You can practice this asana even when you're not on your periods- when life gets all hard and stressful. Moreover, as you bend forward in the pose, your abdominal organs are stimulated- as a result, you get less painful cramps.
