Best Yoga Poses to solve all Digestive issues.

 Cultivating a regular yoga practice is one of the most effective ways to improve digestion and reduce bloating, pressure, and stress around eating. The postures of yoga are not only mind-expanding and stress-relieving practices in themselves, but they also have the added benefit of helping to realign the body so that it functions more smoothly. With so many different poses available, it can be hard to know where to start with this practice. Here’s an overview of some simple asanas you can use to help you digest your food better and feel less bloated after meals.

Best Yoga Poses to solve all Digestive issues.

Backbends and twists

Backbends and twists are two of the most effective types of poses for improving digestion. They are both categories of poses that involve full or partial spinal twists; the difference between the two is that a backbend is done lying down, while a twist is done standing up. Backbends are typically done in Shavasana or savasana, the “corpse pose,” at the end of a yoga practice. They are a relaxation pose and a gentle inversion that helps bring blood flow to the brain. They can also help to relieve headaches caused by digestive issues. Twists are often used as a transitional pose between others, or to end a practice. They improve the flow of food through the digestive tract and can help people who suffer from constipation and other digestive issues. If you have back problems, you should avoid backbends, but twists are generally considered to be safe for people with spinal issues. If you have had any kind of abdominal surgery, you should be careful not to twist after meals as it can slow down your digestion.

Few Asanas that can be added are-

1.Dhanurasana [Back Bend]

This one-back bend asana is beneficial for helping you with digestion. The additional benefits are that it helps to reduce all back problems and back pains.

2.Bhujangasana[ Back Bend]

This works similarly to the dhanurasana but if you are a beginner and have an issue with holding the pose for a long time then this can be your friend in long run.

3.Vakrasana [Spine Twist]

This is one of the best poses for igniting the digestive fire. It is very effective because it stretches our abdominals and back and all the related organs in an unfamiliar way which stimulates the organs and helps in digestion. And it's beginner-friendly too.

4. Ardhamatsyendrasana [Seated Spinal Twist]

It's Quite similar to Vakrasana, but beginners may find it a bit confusing or difficult. Don't worry practice the pose for a few days and slowly as you can hold a bit longer you can try this.

Forward bends

Forward bends are typically done seated or standing and are one of the best poses for people who struggle with bloating and acid reflux. Forward bends are often categorized as restorative poses, but they can also be used to help you transition between other poses. They are particularly helpful for people who are dealing with low blood sugar or are exhausted. For bloated people, a forward bend can help gently encourage digestion. If you are taking medication that causes bloating, you might want to avoid forward bends.

Two of the top Yoga poses in forwarding bend for digestion according to me-

1.Ardhakurmasana[ Front Bend]

The best pose for digestion and all the stomach-related issue is also great for people having stress and anxiety. Beginner-friendly can be done by everyone. So you have no excuse to skip it, Got it?

2.Paschimottanasana [Front Bend]

This is one of the top asanas for all your stomach and gut-related issues. It's for intermediate and advanced levels. If you have been doing yoga for a long time you can give it a try. I would suggest that while practicing this try not to hunch your back and keep them as straight as you can and feel the stretch at your hamstrings more.
If you are suffering from slipped discs or any major back pain or issue do it under a good yoga trainer or else avoid this pose.

The breath and the end-of-meal pause

Many of the poses above involve some specific breathing pattern designed to help the body. It’s a good idea to do a quick yoga session during your meal break at work, or before dinner at home. This will help you to avoid overeating and to digest your food properly. One of the best ways to practice mindful eating is to take a break before each meal, and before you begin eating. This is sometimes called the “napkin technique,” as it can remind you of the way you place a napkin on your lap before eating. Use this break before each meal to slow down and be mindful of your hunger, food choices, and emotions.


Yoga is an ancient art that has been practiced by people around the world for thousands of years. While there are many different styles and types of yoga, all of them share the same core intention: to bring the mind and body into a state of balance and ease. One of the most effective ways to bring this about is through yoga poses. These poses or postures are what guide us towards a more healthy and more mindful life. They can help us to reduce stress and anxiety, get better sleep, and improve our digestion. There are many different poses to choose from, so don’t be overwhelmed. Pick one or two that feel like a good fit for you, and try to work them into your day as often as you can.
