10 Vinyasa Yoga Videos for Improving Metabolism

Leslie Perryman • April 15, 2015
In Vinyasa, we practice breath initiated movement. Class pace is aerobic, fluid, and challenging for beginners. There is a strong emphasis on delicate transitions, with steadiness and ease recognized as elements of graceful movement. Refined movement through powerful postures create integrated strength, flexibility, and a kick butt workout.If you have overindulged yourself and are feeling rather bloated or are simply suffering from an irritable stomach you might be surprised to know that yoga can aide in the digestive process. One Medical notes that by replacing the amount of stress in your day with the calm that can be gleaned from practicing yoga, the sympathetic nervous system will react as well. What's more many of the poses performed in yoga, according to One Medical, are like a gentle massage for our abdomens. So why not beat the bloat and ease stomach pain with yoga sequences specifically designed to help digestion. Yoga for Energy and Inspiration by Julie Montagu
