Asanas for improving digestion

Yoga aids in digestive health by reducing stress, increasing circulation, and promoting physical movement or motility of the gastrointestinal (GI) tract. Implementation of Yoga postures that massage the internal organs of the digestive tract and strengthen the muscles around it can help improve blood flow, prevent constipation and bloating, and help with the management of chronic conditions like irritable bowel syndrome (IBS) and gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD). Additionally, Breathwork practices help in stress and anxiety relief, which also helps to improve digestion through the gut-brain connection. Recent studies have found that the gut-brain connection can also work the other way around, providing strong evidence that gut health, gastrointestinal disease, and mental wellbeing are all connected.
