Simple Yoga Poses to Boost Your Digestive Health

To stay healthy, our digestive system plays a crucial role. Digestion is the process that transforms the nutrients in our food, like proteins, fats, carbohydrates, vitamins, minerals, and water, into energy and materials our body needs to grow and repair itself. If we want our digestion to work well, yoga poses and specific hand gestures (called mudras) can be very helpful.

Pushan Mudra: Balancing Upper and Lower Digestion

If you have problems with your upper digestive system, like heartburn or burping, try the Pushan Mudra.
To do it, touch the tips of your index and middle fingers to your thumb while keeping your ring and little fingers extended.
Keep your palm facing upwards.
If you’re dealing with lower digestive issues, like bloating or constipation, touch the tips of your ring and little fingers to your thumb.
Your index and middle fingers should remain extended, and your palm should face upwards

Apana Mudra: Enhancing Digestive Healing

For additional digestive support, especially for the left side of your body, try the Apana Mudra.
Touch the tips of your middle and ring fingers to your thumb, while leaving your index and little fingers free.
During your inhales, press the fingertips against your thumb, and release the pressure during exhales. This can help calm your mind and body.
Vajrasana (Thunderbolt Pose):

Start in a standing position and then lower your knees onto the mat.
Place your pelvis on your heels with your toes pointing outward.
Keep your heels close together and avoid stacking your right and left toes.
Place your palms on your knees, facing up.

Padahasthasana (Hand to Foot Pose):

Begin from a standing position (Samasthithi).
Exhale and gently bend your upper body, lowering your head while keeping your shoulders and neck relaxed.
Try to touch your forehead to your legs, but only go as far as you’re comfortable with, especially if you’re a beginner.
Place your palms on the sides of your feet and move your torso from your hip joints, keeping your legs and knees straight.

Balasana (Child’s Pose):

Kneel on the mat with your heels together.
Inhale and raise your arms above your head, then exhale and bend your upper body forward.
Place your forehead on the floor.
Your pelvis should rest on your heels, and keep your back from rounding.
By practicing these yoga poses and mudras, you can support a healthy digestive system in a simple and effective way.
