This 10-minute yoga sequence will help your digestion

Healthista’s new video series features yoga experts talking about how to use yoga to your greatest health benefit. This week, Kat and Kirsty from brilliant yoga streaming site Movement for Modern Life bring you a yoga sequence to aid digestion 

Welcome to Yoga For…. a new video series every Friday with the yoga experts at Movement for Modern Life, the online home to the best yoga teachers in the UK. This ten minute brings you the best moves for aiding your body’s natural digestive processes and energies. Let us know what you think on Twitter and Facebook and scroll down for a great offer on membership.

This sequence is designed to stimulate your digestion system and the area surrounding it. Often, this area of our body can get stagnant, especially if we sit a lot. This short class will help you deepen your breath to expand your intake of oxygen which in turn stimulates all the organs of the body to work efficiently. As the digestion is one of our ways of eliminating, it’s one to take good care of.

  • Core Work 
  • Pelvic Tilts
