Yoga For Gas And Bloating

Apanasana (Knee to chest pose)

This is a yoga pose that helps you to expel stomach gas from both ends. It needs to be done in seclusion (obviously…it would be so gross if the world hears you fart!)

Lie down on your back on a mat. Keep your palms facing downwards on your knees. Inhale slowly. While you exhale, pull your thighs towards your chest with your arms. Clasp your arms around your knees. Inhale slowly while trying to pull your thighs away from the chest while holding them back with your arms. Now exhale and rock your back gently from side to side or from front to back. Now inhale again, then exhale and release your legs. Resume the original rest pose. Repeat this exercise five to six times. Practising Apanasana gives relief from digestive disorders, if performed regularly.
