Swollen belly, slow and difficult digestion, but also gastritis and heartburn, today's yoga sequence is a help for all these conditions. In fact, the exercises we are going to practice are based on twists, but also asanas that counteract fermentation and stimulate the flow of blood to the internal organs for the well-being of the digestive tract and the entire body.
Here is an asana to practice even after eating, when digestion is slow. Sit on your knees, with the glutes in contact with your heels. The hands are placed in the lap, palms facing upwards, one hand is on top of the other and the thumbs press against each other. Breathe.
Sit cross-legged and open your chest. Move the right hand to the left knee, the left hand rests behind the back, rotate the torso. With the exhale try to rotate a little more. Repeat on the other side.
Go on your back now. The legs are bent and the feet rest on the ground. Open your arms by extending them at shoulder height. Slowly drop your knees to the right, the head rotates to the left. Stay in this deep twist, breathe. After a few breaths, release the position and repeat on the other side.
Now stretch out on the mat. Exhale, bend the right knee bringing it to the chest, at the same time look towards the navel and bring the hands to the knee. Then stretch with the whole body, repeat this time bending the left leg and so on.
Staying on your back, bring your knees to your chest. Look towards the navel and roll back and forth until you are seated. Slide with your weight forward resting your hands on the ground, stretch your legs. Take a few steps forward and enter the downward facing dog yoga pose.
Bring your right foot between your hands. Take your hands off and lift your torso by extending your arms upwards, breathe. Bring your hands back to the ground and your foot close to the other. Repeat on the other side.
Finish the previous sequence in the downward facing dog yoga pose. Bring your knees to the ground, rest your chest on your knees and stretch your arms forward, rest, listen to your breath and to the energy flowing through your body, sweeping away toxins and inflammation.
