4 yoga poses to help with indigestion and heartburn while pregnant

An average of  40 – 80% of  women experience some sort of heart burn and indigestion during pregnancy  . Here are some easy  yoga poses that you can do daily to help with indigestion and heart burn .

This is my ADORABLE client  Shana ,she is 4 months pregnant and was telling me she was experiencing heartburn on and off . I gave her these poses to do daily or when her indigestion started to come on .

1. Sitting with your legs crossed  – Place your hands on your ankles . Inhale thru your nose   into your stomach as you arch and look up then exhale  thru your mouth as you look down , round and pull back. ( repeat 5 times ) Image


2. Adding on – Inhale thru your nose as you arch up, raising your arms over your head then exhale thru your mouth as you grab your ankles and pull back .( repeat 5 times )



3. Still sitting in a cross legged position – Interlace your hands by your lower back and a few inches behind . As you inhale thru your nose look up , as you exhale thru your mouth look down and squeeze your shoulder blazes together  .( Repeat a few times )



4.kneeling on a bolster , pillow ,block – Bring your arms behind and grab your elbows . Sticking your chest out , Inhale thru  your nose into heart and stomach then exhale thru your mouth as your shoulders relax.



4. Sitting in a chair – Interlace your hands behind your head , inhale into your stomach and heart , then exhale thru mouth as you press your elbows back and down .


My friend Desi Bartlett ( An amazing prenatal yoga teacher at exhale in venice ,ca. ) gave me an awesome tip – While doing these poses Desi suggests to defuse in air or place a few drops of peppermint oil in a humidifier and breathe the oil deep into the stomach .

    I’m impressed, I must say. Rarely do I encounter a blog that’s both equally educative and entertaining, and let me tell you, you’ve hit the nail on the head. The problem is something which not enough folks are speaking intelligently about. I’m very happy I found
    this in my hunt for something relating to this.
