By a staff reporter: There are 4 ways by which yoga practice can improve your digestion naturally.

  1. Certain yoga poses like twists and inversions stimulate blood flow to the abdominal organs, including the stomach and intestines. As a result organs get adequate supply of oxygen and nutrients and digestion gets normal.
  2. Ayurveda says that India's traditional medical system plays an essential role in providing good health by aiding digestion. Yoga exercises like Kapalbhati help in improving digestion. But do not practice it on a full stomach.
  3. Certain yoga poses like forward bends and gentle twists prevent constipation by stimulating bowel movements.
  4. In many yoga poses, gentle contractions are felt in the abdomen and bloating is reduced and gas is released. Wind-Relieving Pose (Pavanamuktasana) and Child's Pose (Balasana) are among them.
