A regular yoga practice can alleviate digestion condition signs such as heartburn. Heartburn is a sign of acid reflux. According to Mukunda Stiles, author of ‘Ayurvedic Yoga Treatment,’ bouts of indigestion, acid reflux and burning feelings after you consume indicate that you’ve ‘too much digestive fire.’ To extinguish the fire, you need yoga poses such as inversions and supported backbends, that cool your system.

Supported Bridge Pose

Lie on your back. Position the soles of your feet on the ground and flex your knees. Make your legs hip distance apart. Feel your upper and lower back totally connected to the yoga mat. Breathe for 3 to five times.

Step 2

Grab your yoga block. Raise your hips and slide the block directly below your sacrum (base of the spine). Release your hips onto the block. Bring your arms together with your thighs with your palms dealing with up. Keep your upper back, shoulders and feet pressed into the ground. The yoga block height varies so explore the most affordable and highest levels to test which is most comfy.

Step 3

Hold this supported backbend for 40 seconds. Remove the block from under you and lower your hips back to the ground. Supported backbends lift your diaphragm to free weight off your tummy, which is the very best treatment for digestion conditions, according to Stiles.

Legs-Up-The-Wall Pose

Step 1

Face a wall with your toes toward the wall. Come onto your back and correct your upper hands the wall. Bring your butt as near to the wall as possible. Release your upper back and neck into the ground totally. Your body resembles an ‘L’ shape.

Step 2

‘T’ your arms out and bend your elbows to a 90 degree angle. Face your palms toward the ceiling and rest your lower arms on the ground. Widen your legs to hip distance, bend your feet and imagine standing on the ceiling. Close your eyes and remain in Legs-Up-The-Wall posture for 5 minutes.
