Remove that wind!

16 Sep

Yoga last night. Another intense class. Whoa. And man, my left hip is really, really, really tight. It hurts. 😦 I am hoping to see some improvement soon. I wanted to stay in Wind Removing Pose all night!

Wind removing pose…funny name. Makes you wonder why it’s called that, right? Well, it does just that, removes wind! “It helps in removing the toxic gas present in your body. It creates space for fresh air in the body to create maximum utilization of the bodily resources. This yoga pose improves the digestive system very well. It does real wonders to your stomach as the excess gas is being removed from the abdomen. The intestines also function better due to the removal of the gas. You can get rid of constipation by initiating this exercise in your life. The use of legs, hands and hips strengthens the hip muscles.

It is termed to be very useful for patients who suffer from sciatica and joint pains. It releases the muscles of the lower back creating an environment of relaxation for your body. The way this asana is performed it helps in massaging the colon. Any irritation with the bowel movement is also cleared while doing the asana properly.” There you go. Move over Metamucil, bring on Wind Removing Pose! 🙂
