If you feel like your belly is still full all too long after eating, if you’re bloated and gassy no matter what you eat, or if you aren’t eliminating daily, it’s time to fire up your digestion.
Yoga is a great way to do just that. Although many people are under the misconception that yoga’s only good for a nice stretch, it actually works at an even deeper physiological level.
Yoga improves the functioning of the internal organs.
What does this mean for digestion? By twisting, massaging, and applying pressure to the gastrointestinal tract and the liver, pancreas, and gallbladder, yoga asanas increase digestive capacity. They surge fresh supplies of blood and oxygen to the organs, encourage the elimination of toxins, and stimulate the digestive fire.
Ever notice how hungry you feel after a good yoga session? That’s the power of asana at work.
This 23 minute yoga practice will help supercharge the digestive fire. Beginning with sun salutations to remove any stagnancy, the sequence is centered around movements and postures that specifically target the abdominal organs.
Do this practice daily on an empty stomach for a real digestive boost!
