Restorative Yoga Sequence For Digestion

Do you ever feel bloated and gassy after eating? You’re not alone. Many people experience discomfort and bloating after eating, which is often caused by poor digestion. A restorative yoga sequence can help to improve digestion and ease the associated discomfort.

The first step is to find a comfortable seated or reclining position. If you’re seated, try to keep your spine tall and straight. If you’re reclining, try to keep your spine in neutral. Once you’ve found a comfortable position, take a few deep breaths and relax your body.

Next, bring your focus to your abdomen. Inhale and exhale deeply, focusing on the expansion and contraction of your belly. As you inhale, imagine that you’re bringing fresh, clean energy into your body. As you exhale, imagine that you’re releasing any toxins or negative energy.

Once you’ve focused on your breath, begin to gently massage your abdomen in a circular motion. As you massage, imagine that you’re helping to stimulate digestion and relieve any gas or bloating.

After a few minutes of abdominal massage, move on to the following poses.

Puppy Pose

Puppy pose is a great pose for improving digestion. It helps to open the chest and stretch the abdominal muscles. To do puppy pose, start on all fours, then tuck your toes and lift your hips up towards the ceiling. Keep your spine in neutral and your shoulders and hips in line with each other. Hold for a few seconds, then release and repeat.

Bridge Pose

Bridge pose is a great pose for relieving gas and bloating. It helps to stretch the abdominal muscles and stimulate digestion. To do bridge pose, start by lying on your back with your feet flat on the floor and your knees bent. Place your hands on the floor beside you and press into your hands to lift your hips up off the floor. Hold for a few seconds, then release and repeat.

Happy Baby Pose

Happy baby pose is a great pose for relieving gas and bloating. It helps to stretch the abdominal muscles and the hip flexors. To do happy baby pose, start by lying on your back with your feet flat on the floor. Bend your knees and pull your feet towards your butt. Grab onto your feet with your hands and gently pull them towards your chest. Hold for a few seconds, then release and repeat.

Corpse Pose

Corpse pose is a great pose for relieving stress and tension in the body. It also helps to improve digestion and relieve gas and bloating. To do corpse pose, start by lying on your back with your feet flat on the floor and your knees bent. Place your arms at your sides with your palms facing up. Close your eyes and relax your body. Hold for a few minutes, then release and repeat.
