Ladies Holiday
Traditionally, ladies take rest from practice on the first 2-3 days of their personal moon (menses), as the natural downward flow needed for the body to organically complete the process with ease can be disturbed by the upward force created through the deep internal actions of an Ashtanga practice. Contemporary women in yoga have taken varying approaches to this, from ignoring it altogether, to taking a full three days.
