Hi, I'm CarolAnn with CyberWorkouts.com, and I'm going to show you Yoga poses for bloating. So, the first technique we are going to perform, is Fire Breathing. So, what I want you to do, is just get into a nice, settled position, you're right on your sitz bones. Your arms are relaxed and you're just going to focus on your breath. So, in Fire Breathing, we inhale through the nose and out through the nose, but we do it forcefully. And as we inhale, our belly expands and as we exhale, our bellies contract. So, you can perform Fire Breathing for about 30 seconds, and that'll help to relieve some of that bloating. So, this is Fire Breathing. And once you're finished for about 30 seconds, then just relax, close your eyes and allow that to settle in. Now, the second technique, we're going to perform a bridge. So, come down on the floor, into a prone position or into a supine position. Lying down on your back, your arms are next to your body. Just settle into this position, feet firmly planted on the floor, hip width apart. We're going to start with the tail bone, we inhale, to prepare. Exhale, as we roll up, one vertebra at a time. Pressing those hips, up towards the ceiling, inhale at the top and exhaling, imprinting down. And it's like, your spine is like strand of pearls, so one pearl at a time. Rolling up and really use your abdominal muscles to move through this action. Inhale, at the top and exhale, imprinting down. So, that is a nice Yoga pose with the bridge, to help with bloating. Now, another pose, is the Cat-Cow pose. So, we've come over to our hands and our knees. So, we've got, we've actually got two Yoga poses here, that we're combining. The cat pose, you want to make sure that you start in neutral spine. You're lengthening out from the crown of your head, all the way down to the tail bone. We inhale to prepare. Exhale, tuck the pelvis under, tuck the chin under and really contract the abdominal muscles, arch that back. And then, we can move into a Cow pose from here. Where we arch the back and stick the tail bone up and lengthen out through the crown of your head. So, we round, arching the body into a Cat pose. And then, we move in the opposite direction, and lengthening out through the tail bone, pressing through the tailbone. Lengthening through the crown of the head. And then, we keep transferring from Cat to Cow, one movement, one breath, inhale into Cow, exhale into Cat. Now, it's up to you, how much range of motion you have. Some people have, what we call a Military Spine and there's not a lot of curvature back there. And that's okay, just as long as you're continuing to move through your poses. And you can perform about ten reps of the Cat-Cow pose and that'll really help to relieve the back. And these are some great Yoga poses and technique for bloating.
