3 Yoga Poses to Improve Digestion

by Darla Brown on September 1, 2009

Despite the audio issues on this video, I like how Cain Carroll describes three yoga poses to improve digestion. Watch, learn, digest.

3 Yoga Poses to Improve Digestion

Thunderbolt Pose Aids Digestion

1) Standing poses – like Warrior 2 and Triangle
2) Deep Squat
3) Thunderbolt (see picture)

P.S. Twists are also great to aid many digestive issues.

Thunderbolt is very similar to Japanese Seiza.

Wow! Cool! I should use this along with the Aloe Vera gel drink I have. This should be like a powerful combination to get rid of my digestion problems. Aloe Vera is the best natural laxative there is. I couldn’t stand the taste of pure Aloe Vera and I found an alternative which has a tasty peach flavor. I’ve included the URL if you’re interested.

Thanks for this excellent video! I’m going to include it in my yoga routine.

Hi, great video, these poses have definitely strengthened my digestive power post meals. I was curious, can someone please tell me what the song is or the artist of the songs played during the intro and outro of this video? Very cool music.

Thanks, Ken

Good question, Ken. I’m not sure. I’ll try to find out.
