Favorite Thanksgiving Yoga Pose

 In Poses
Seated TwistWhile I don’t encourage overeating there is something about holidays, like Thanksgiving, that can leave us feeling more full than we may like. Eating and stretching may seem like they don’t go together however, certain poses can aid in speeding digestion, providing some relief.

So what is my favorite pose after a large feast?
A Seated Twist

Twisting helps to wring out the old blood from our organs, encouraging fresh blood flow as it increases circulation and stimulates digestion.

As this picture suggests, you can be seated on the ground or you can sit up tall in a chair (not resting on the back of the chair). Inhale lift in your chest and as you exhale, twist gently to the left, taking your right hand to your left knee. Take your left hand back behind you and take ahold of the back of the seat. Stay here for 3-5 breaths and then repeat this on the right side.

I wish you all a Healthy and Happy Thanksgiving full of family, friends, light and love.
