Yoga Poses for Improved Digestion
This year wellness is expected to take center stage in every aspect of our lives as we continue to refocus our priorities and work on being the best version of ourselves. “We all know that yoga asana is great for helping back pain, stress relief, increasing oxygen intake, as well as being awesome for mental health. But did you know that yoga asana can also be a tool to help improve your digestive function,” writes Ali Washington on DoYouYoga.com. Several postures within Yoga asana help to cleanse, stimulate, aid, and encourage good digestive function.
So, the next time you’re faced with digestive upset, give some of these postures a try:
- Pavanamuktasana – combined with slow breathing this pose is awesome for sluggish digestion.
- Ardha Matsyendrasana - think of this twists as having the same effect on your digestive system as twisting a cloth; it has the specific ability to cleanse the digestive system.
- Savasana – is the ultimate posture for all healing; increasing oxygenation to the digestive organs and creates the ideal environment for cleansing and healing.
