6 Yoga Exercises To Relieve Bloating and Improve Digestion

Holidays are coming. Or should I say the food is coming.

It’s really tough for you to resist that delicious home-cooked food of all kinds. There will be everything.

Most of you will part ways with their healthy way of living for a week or two. That’s probably good for you sometimes. I won’t judge.

It’s really important for you to get back on your healthy track when the holiday season ends.

Now, as you already know, I’m here to give you tips and tricks how to handle things properly.

Lots of food will get into your system. It won’t be easy. You will feel like you are going into labor or something.

Your stomach will be on the verge of an explosion.

You will feel bloated and full, but the food will keep heading towards you. It’s time for the holidays, so you are not allowed to say no.

Luckily for you, I found something that will help you go over that easily.

Get ready to spend your days with yoga. Oh yeah.

Many of you didn’t know that it could help, but doing it will change your mind.

You thought there are some bad side effects didn’t you?

Even when you get carried away and become full of those delicious meals, these exercises will keep your mind thinking about health.

All of these yoga exercises are easy to do. They will take only a couple of minutes.

You will be back on the table with the rest of your family in no time.

Let’s get moving!

Knees-To-Chest

This is more like a pose. Start it with lying on your back with your legs and arms fully extended.

Slowly inhale and bring your knees up. Clasp your hands around them.

Put your forearms over the shines and hold your elbows.

Remember to keep your back on the floor the whole time. Your shoulders need to lie flat on the floor.

While holding this position, try to pull your tailbone to the floor all the time.

Hold it for 1 minute and breathe slowly.

Seated Spinal Twist

Sit on the floor. Create a 90 degrees angle with your trunk and legs extended.

Bend your right knee bringing it up and twist to the right at the hip.

Now, use your left elbow as leverage against your right knee. Try to reach back as far as you can without pain.

Hold for 30 seconds and then switch sides.

Chair Pose

To do this move, you need to stand with your feet and toes facing forward.

Sit back just as you are going to sit down on a chair and extend both arms over your head.

Hold your chest high and pin your shoulders back.

Hold like that for 1 minute. Breathe slowly.

High Lunge Variation

Stand up straight with your feet together and hands aside. The next thing you need to do is take a large step backward with your right leg.

Bend your left knee and clasp your hands behind your back. While doing this, drive your arms back to open up your chest area.

Release the hands slowly and return to starting position.

Switch legs and repeat the movement.

Bridge Pose

I love this one.

Lie on your back with your knees bent and the bottom of your feet firmly on the floor.

Keep them in hips width apart.

From this position, lift your hips straight up while holding your hands beneath your body and pressuring against the ground.

Hold it like this for 1 minute. Breathe deeply during the whole time.

Legs Up the Wall

Last but not least, the “legs against wall” move.

Lie on your back with your butt against the wall. Extend your legs straight up the wall and rest your hands on the floor.

Keep your palms down.

Hold it like this for a minute and breathe deeply and slowly.

And you are done.

These are all great relaxing movements you can do all the time. They will help you get rid of that annoying feeling.

Now that you are done, go back at the table and enjoy a nice chat with your family.
