Yoga has evolved into a common workout practice, but this form of mindful movement has been around for centuries.
Yoga means "union" in Hindu and is a spiritual discipline to bring together the mind and the body. This is done through breathwork, meditation, and movement.
Yoga is the sister practice to Ayurveda, which also acknowledges the mind and body connection. It's the science of life. In both, the focus is placed on staying grounded and supporting digestion (the center of our body and mind).
This is why yoga can be extremely beneficial to healing daily or occasional gut distress like bloating. Here are 5 poses to try when you're feeling bloated. Be sure to practice them slowly, never rushing through movements.
