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
