Seated Spinal Twist for Gut Health

This gentle twist helps to mobilize blood away from the core and then allows blood to return once we release from the twist. This gentle twisting movement can help to massage the GI tract and even help with bloating and digestion!

  1. First Come to a cross-legged seated position sitting tall and elongating the spine.
  2. Gently twist to one side, bringing one hand behind you and the other to rest on your knee.
  3. Breathe into the twisted position.
  4. Make every exhale a little more pronounced by drawing the belly button back to the spine.
  5. Hold for five to six breaths per side and repeat.
