6 Yoga Poses for Constipation

Constipation is one of the most common problems we have in daily life. While medication and over-the-counter treatments can help, some of us may be interested in alternative therapies, such as yoga.


How yoga can help constipation?

Yoga helps to ease the pain and discomfort of digestive troubles and it alleviates constipation in two ways:


  • Managing stress

You may notice that you’re more likely to get constipated when you are stressed out. Working on Yoga helps manage your stress response, which can greatly improve your digestive system functioning.


  • Digestive massage

Yoga benefits your digestive system with twisting poses, inversions and forward folds. These poses massage your digestive organs, increase blood flow and oxygen delivery and encourage stools to regulate healthier bowel movements.


If you’re looking for a natural way to relieve your constipation, these poses described below may help. Roll out your mat and give it a try!
