August 14, 2015 2 min read

Here’s some amazing news for all the ladies who struggle with a painful period each month. All those pain relievers for the pain you are enduring your period isn’t good on the liver. Why not try something natural? There are some moves that will heal some of the issues you deal with when your dreadful period comes. Some of the issues are bloating, fatigue, and cramps. yogaaa Cramps Malasana – The Yoga Squat Malasana will gently stretch the lower back and the pelvic floor. This will assist in alleviating painful menstrual cramps, as well as soothes your belly. Try For Yourself: Start by standing with your feet hip-width apart, or even wider. Turn your toes so they are facing outwards, on a diagonal. Be sure that your knees are also facing the same direction that your toes are. Squat while you are going all the way down. If your ankles feel uncomfortable, or if your heels are not completely flat on the floor, you may roll up your yoga mat under the heel of your feet. Now, bring your hands into a position that you would as if you were praying. Use your elbows to press your inner thighs outward gently.   Bloat Seated Spinal Twist Yoga Move This yoga move will assist with water retention and digestion. Try it For Yourself: Start in a sitting position and cross your legs. Extend your right leg and bend it. Cross the right leg over the left leg, and then put your right foot onto the floor. On inhalation, extend your left arm over your head. As you exhale, twist your torso towards the right while hooking your arm towards the outside of your right leg. During each inhalation, lengthen the spine. During each exhalation, twist yourself deeper.   Fatigue Savasana – The Corpse Pose This yoga move will help calm down the central nervous system. It can also help reduce the fatigue, pain, and headaches. Try it For Yourself: Lie on your back in a comfortable position on your yoga mat. You also can place a rolled-up blanket or bolster under your knees for lower back support. Go ahead and close your eyes and take breaths that are deep and slow. Be sure to exhale through your nose. Lower Back Pain Child’s Pose With Wide Knees This yoga pose will assist in gently stretching the hips and lower back region. It will also help aches and minor pains. Try it For Yourself: While you are kneeling, separate your knees as wide as possible, but be sure you are still comfortable. Now, fold the torso between your legs. Be sure to rest your chest on the floor or mat. Now, stretch out the arms in front of you with your palms facing downwards. You can also bring your arms to the side of you with your palms facing up, if that works better for you.   Source: Self

Shipping & Delivery

Due to COVID-19, shipping systems the world over are experiencing abnormal delays. There is an enormous demand on postal and delivery services as online shopping has skyrocketed, due to store closures and stay-at-home mandates. This is an unprecedented situation, and we are working around the clock to fulfill your orders as quickly as possible. To be clear, we are filling orders in 4-6 days, and we are shipping immediately after that. Once shipped, our shipping partner, UPS, will get your order out to you as quickly as possible. Thanks for your support and understanding.

Are you in Canada? Specifically, are you outside of a metropolitan centre? We need to alert you to a disruption in shipping due to COVID-19. Our preferred shipping provider, UPS, has informed us that they cannot guarantee express shipping for many locations. We have also seen that packages delivered to Toronto, Ottawa, Vancouver, etc, are not waylaid, but packages delivered to areas just outside of these cities are being held in transit for days or even weeks. UPS has discontinued their guarantee of 1-4 day delivery, which you can read more about here. Therefore, we can guarantee early fulfillment but not early delivery of our goods from our warehouse to your door at this time.

We want you to start your fitness journey with us as quickly as possible, that’s why we send every package to the USA & Canada via expedited or standard shipping (whichever is faster) with our partners at UPS. Once your order has been processed successfully we try to have your shipment prepared within 4-6 business days, and it typically takes 2-4 days to get to you once it leaves our warehouse.

We currently DO NOT SHIP to locations outside of the US and Canada. We DO NOT ship to a P.O. Box number.

We ship all of our physical products with UPS, from our warehouse location in Kingston, Ontario, Canada. Sometimes delivery can be delayed by circumstances out of our control, like postal & custom delays, back-ordered products or incorrectly entered shipping addresses. If there is a delay at Customs, a representative of UPS may contact you to provide your identification in order to receive your package. Please do this ASAP: Customers will be responsible for any additional shipping fees for failure to provide the required information to release a shipment.

Make sure when checking out and paying for your order that all of your information entered is correct! If you notice a mistake in your address, please try to contact us before your order is processed for shipping to avoid any missed shipments or delays. As soon as we process your order for shipping, you will receive a shipping confirmation email that contains your UPS tracking number. You can head on over to the UPS Website to see where your products are. Note: tracking information may take 1-2 business days to be updated in the UPS system

If you are not home when your package is delivered, BodyRock is NOT responsible if it is stolen. Please contact us if this happens to you and we will provide you with all the information needed to take the next steps.
