The menopause is reached by females between the ages of 40 and 60. Menopause causes the body to go through a lot of changes. It frequently goes along with changes in how the female pelvic floor functions. The distresses associated with menopause are minimized by altering the routine and adopting a healthier diet and exercise regimen. Yoga may have an impact on the heart and core muscles, according to the evidence. The study's objective was to determine how yoga affected the strength of the pelvic floor muscles (PFMs) in women who had reached menopause by utilising the perineometer. Seventy menopausal females between the ages of 40 and 60 were the subjects of a study. On the first day, participants received instruction to perform Kapalbhati and were urged to practise for five weeks. PFM strength was the primary outcome measure, measured using a perineometer. In results, Kapalbhati was found useful in treating stress urinary incontinence in post-menopausal women.
