Don’t you feel helpless and annoyed when you have a build-up of gas, and are unable to release it? Or when a constipated stomach makes you squeal in pain? And if this is something you suffer from every now and then, we’re sure you must be relying on antacids. Ladies, get rid of that habit now because we’ve got a natural cure for you. Yes, we’re talking about using yoga for digestion.
No, we aren’t asking you to gulp a bitter kadha down your throat. Instead, we’re here to tell you a miracle cure: pawanmuktasana aka the gas release yoga pose.
Unfortunately, due to our sedentary lives and eating habits, indigestion has become a part and parcel of our lives. And sometimes, pain and discomfort get so bad that you just can’t tolerate it! This is particularly common amongst the elderly population, as they get very little physical activity due to their age.
So without further ado, let’s understand why pawanmuktasana works, and also the right way to do this yoga pose.
According to yoga expert Grand Master Akshar, practicing pawanmuktasana can help improve digestion and promote weight loss. This pose is known by many names, such as the wind-relieving pose, and even the gas release pose.
“It is also considered as one of the best asanas to reduce belly fat and boost your metabolism. Add pawanmuktasana to your daily routine to reduce binge eating, promote regular bowel movements, and aid in weight loss”, he said.
So ladies, don’t embarrass yourself with a growling gut and untimely farting, instead, practice pawanmuktasana and relax.
