By: Debbie Lui                

Many of us experience bloating or an upset stomach from time to time, especially after overindulging!  To keep your gut healthy, ensuring you get the gut essentials such as dietary fiber, water, and probiotics are very important. But, believe it or not, exercise can also help to reduce that awful sensation and to regulate bowel as well! Here are a few simple yoga poses to try:

Spinal Twist



Lie down, hug your knees and inhale. As you exhale, drop your knees to the left, using your left hand to push them down gently. Then, turn your head and stretch your arm out to the right. Stay for five to ten breaths. Inhale, and return your hands and knees to center. Repeat on the other side. The movement can help soothe and tone your abdomen.


Seated Forward Bend 


Sit on the floor with your legs in front of you. Keeping your back straight, slowly hinge forward at the hips and lower your torso. Stay in position for five to ten while taking deep breaths. This can help relieve some of the stress that’s affecting your digestion.

Child’s Pose


Sit on your knees and feet, place your forehead on the floor. Lean forward, stretching your arms in front of you. Then, keep your back straight. Stay in this position for five breaths or more.
