These 5 yoga poses are simple and so easy – anyone can do them!
Not only that, they feel relaxing too!
So, next time you’re bloated, give yoga a chance and see how effective it is at beating bloat.
And if you’re wondering why yoga works for debloating, it’s because it massages internal organs and helps you flush everything out.
It’s great to do these poses, even when not bloated, to keep your digestion healthy and working beautifully as well.
Remember to always breathe deeply. Hold each pose for 1 minute or more if you like.
Instructions for each pose:
Legs up the wall
Place a yoga mat (you can use a blanket or pillow for more support) on the floor next to a wall. Get down on the mat on your sideways, getting one hip and the same side shoulder as close to the wall as you possibly can. Now, turn yourself around to get your legs up on the wall, while you lie down your upper body on the mat, including your head. Your legs should be about 90 degrees, more or less, just don’t lock your knees straight.
Knees to chest
To get into this pose, lie down on your back, your legs extended and your arms extended to your sides. Draw both of your knees to your chest and hold them like that by wrapping your arms around them. Keep your back straight on the mat.
Reclined bound angle
Lie down on your back, legs extended down and arms extended at your sides. Bend your legs in the knees as much as you need to to bring the soles of your feet together. Outer edges of your feet should be down on the mat, while the inner edges are turned to the sky. If this is uncomfortable, adjust your feet by bringing them higher or lower, but of course, keep them together.
Kneel on the floor and sit back on your heels. Extend your arms keeping palms facing down.
Your heart and chest should rest between or on top of your thighs. The forehead comes to the floor.
Allow your upper back to broaden as you breathe into it.
Start with your knees down on the mat. Place your arms down on the sides in front of you and lower your whole upper body down to the ground. Your whole body should be down on the floor in a straight position. Keep your arms at your sides, or use them to support your head.
