You can notice significant improvements in your digestion, within a few weeks of practicing these yoga asana. So, here are some of the yoga asana, which you can easily practice in your home, to get relief from digestive disorders.
Udarakarshanasana To Improve Digestion
Udarakarshanaasana is also known as the abdominal twist pose. Start this pose by sitting on the ground with your legs folded, the knees should remain a little above the ground, and your buttock should be rested on your heels. After that, take a deep breath and press down your right knee to the floor.
Keep your right hand over the right knee and after bending it down, slowly exhale. Then again inhale, and press your right knee tightly to the left knee, and keep your left hand on the left knee. Then take breath and move your head to the left side, as much as you can. Slowly exhale and return back to the original position. Repeat this 3 times on one side and then repeat the whole thing all over again for the other side.
Yastikasana To Improve Digestion
Yastikasana or the stick pose helps to relive constipation very fast. To do this, first lie on your back. Keep the legs stretched and point your toes towards the down. Then slowly inhale, lift your hands and put them straight on the floor, so that they stay beside your ears.
Then make a Namaste gesture with your palms. Stretch the whole body and then stop your breath for four seconds (avoid doing this if you are a heart patient). And then slowly relax your body. Repeat the pose for 3- 4 times.
Yoga Mudrasana To Improve Digestion
Yoga mudrasana or the psychic union pose helps to relieve constipation and enhances nutrition absorption. Sit on the ground in a lotus posture, and if that is difficult for you, then you can also sit in a simple cross legged pose. Then move your hands backwards and try to cross the fingers of both hands with one another.
After that, slowly exhale and bend towards the front so that your head touches the ground. Stay in this position for as long as you can, continue breathing normally, and then return back to the original position when you start feeling uncomfortable.
Sputa Vajrasana To Improve Digestion
This pose is a bit difficult for beginners, and it recommended that you practice it under expert supervision for some days, before doing it alone in home. To start, first sit on your heels and inhale and exhale for some time. Then make your toes flat to touch the ground, and slowly bend towards the back, while inhaling.
Go back as much as you can, because it will require some time to master this and once you are habituated, lean back totally, so that your head touches the ground. Form an arch like structure from the head to the lower back. Put your hands on the chest in a Namaste gesture. Hold the position for a few seconds, and then slowly return back to the original position.
