Beat the Bloat ~

It’s Yoga Wednesday at Ayurveda Wellness Healing, LLC…knees to chest pose is a great “Beat the Bloat” pose. Just what we all need.

It’s easy to overindulge, and feel bloated and puffy after a big meal. The main cause? Not-so-savory reasons like gas and acid reflux. Instead of popping a Tums and flopping back on the couch, think about trying a natural cure.

You’ll want to do this simple stretch-also known as the wind-relieving pose-to gain relief from bloating and gas pains.

How do it:
Lie down, relax and inhale, placing your hands on your knees. Exhale, and hug your knees to your chest. Rock your knees from side to side to maximize the stretch. Stay for five to ten breaths, and release your knees. Repeat this move a few more times.

Modification: Bring your knees as far as it is comfortable. To vary the stretch, you can do one side at a time. Leaving your left leg extended, bring up your right knee and hold it for five more breaths. Then, switch to the other side.
