Cooling and balancing pranayamas sheetali and sheetkari, Nadi shodhana, Bramari, and AUM chanting can help. Pranayam is very useful for balancing emotions and calming the mind especially during hot flashes, which is one of the most prominent symptoms of menopause. It can also help in dealing with aches and pain. Do not put any strain on the breath or practice with any retention or locks as this will increase discomfort. Simple, relaxed and gentle pranayama is helpful.
