I am looking for some good yoga poses that help aid in digestion and natural detox. I have been introducing a lot of newness into my diet and feel like I need to include some of those benefits into my practice.
Here I found a great step by step plan from Shape. This blog is pretty awesome too! Below are some of my favorite poses among the several out there.
Supta Matsyendrasana (Reclined Twist) The reclined twist stimulates the flow of fresh blood to your digestive organs, which in turn increases the health and functioning of your entire digestive system
- Wide-legged Forward Fold with Twist: From a wide-legged forward fold, heel-toe feet wide, about three to four feet apart. Take left hand to right ankle or shin, reach right hand toward the ceiling, and lean back. Stay here or, if it would feel even better, bend right elbow, take hold of the top of left thigh, and lean back. Breathe for 5 deep breaths, then repeat on the other side.
