YOGA & Digestion
With the Holidays we tend to indulge in all the tasty foods prepared for us. This can lead to a build up of foods sitting in our gut.
Digestion is an important action in our bodies to feel energized and comfortable.
Our bodies are very complex, everyone’s digestion systems varies and some can run smoothly while other have a very hard time “ letting go”. Eating healthy on a daily basis is very important for healthy digestion. When your body isn’t functioning they way you want it to, life can become very hectic.
Using Yoga as a tool in digestion can help your body and mind through a hard time. Yoga has its benefits for aiding a weak digestion system. There are a few yoga postures that can help smooth out your day.
Using deep breathing to stimulate your inner organs can help with your overall digestion and create a strong gut. With every deep inhale you are expanding your diaphragm, and in turn massaging your gut, while creating better overall circulation.
