Use This Restorative Yoga Flow to Help You Digest When You're Feeling Stuffed
Every Thanksgiving, I tend to eat at least two plates of food. And every year, I need a little help getting the whole meal to digest. As a yoga instructor, I know that there are active yoga poses that can aid with digestion, but right after a big meal, the last thing I want to do is hover in a Boat Pose. So, ahead is a six-pose restorative flow to help aid in digestion.
The Supine Twist and Wind Relieving Pose will especially help access the ascending and descending colon in a way that helps move your Thanksgiving dinner through your large intestine. Once you've gotten things movin', make sure to take the Constructive Rest/Savasana at the end to let your digestive system process the assistance you've given it without any external stressors.
