Yes. If your body feels like.

As always, yoga asanas are to be performed with awareness.

As cleansing of uterus happens during this time, postures that involve inversion of the uterus are to be avoided..For example, Sarvaangasana, Halaasana and Sirsaasana are to be avoided during periods.

Some of the twisting asanas help with pain and cramps. Absolutely ok to do as discussed above.
