What makes pawanmuktasana perfect for gastric pain and gut problems?
According to yoga expert Grand Master Akshar, practicing pawanmuktasana can help improve digestion and promote weight loss. This pose is known by many names, such as the wind-relieving pose, and even the gas release pose.
“It is also considered as one of the best asanas to reduce belly fat and boost your metabolism. Add pawanmuktasana to your daily routine to reduce binge eating, promote regular bowel movements, and aid in weight loss”, he said.
But please don’t practice it if you fall under the following categories
- If you have high blood pressure, hyperacidity, hernia, slip disc, heart problems, testicular disorders, neck and back issues, then pose is not for you.
- If you are pregnant or menstruating, then steer clear of this pose.
So ladies, don’t embarrass yourself with a growling gut and untimely farting, instead, practice pawanmuktasana and relax.
