Yoga For A Healthy Gut - Mondays With Maya


Hi there, friends,

All of us at some point have suffered from digestive issues, whether chronically (i.e. IBS) or seasonal (i.e. Thanksgiving gorging). A lot of emotional issues can also manifest themselves as gut problems and so taking care of our gut is something we shouldn't take lightly. Whatever your reason to want to take care of your gut, here is a short and gentle yet effective yoga sequence for you to do for healing or preventative measures.

Yoga For Healthy Gut

This is a great set for maintaining a healthy gut. 

1. Windmills

Stand in windmill position.

  • Come back to windmill. 
  • Keep twisting only to the left for 1 minute. 
  • Then repeat the same but twisting to the right for 1 minute.
  • Continue the same motion but alternating sides for another 2 minutes.
  • Pause for 5 seconds when you come down to each side.

    2. Side Bends
