1. Cat-Cow Pose
This pose helps with gas and bloating by massaging the abdominal organs. To do this pose, put your hands and knees directly under your shoulders and knees respectively. Breathe in as you drop your belly downwards and lift your chin and chest. And that is the Cow Pose. Then to do the Cat Pose, breathe out and draw your tummy towards your spine and release your head towards the floor. Repeat this 5-20 times.
2. Boat Pose
This pose is great for toning the abdominal muscles, improving digestion and circulation, and reducing stress levels. To do this pose, sit on your mat with your knees bent and your feet flat on the ground. Then, lean back slightly and lift your feet off of the ground, bringing them towards your chest. You can keep your hands on the ground or reach them towards your feet. Hold this position for 5-10 breaths before releasing and repeating as needed.
3. Half Camel Pose
This pose helps to tone the abdominal muscles and improve digestion. It also stretches the front of the body and improves posture. To do this pose, kneel with knees and feet keeping them hip-width apart, and place your palms on your lower back with the fingers pointing upwards. Inhale and exhale. Then carefully, bring the right hand to your right heel and your left hand upwards. Breathe in as you do the opposite
4. Warrior III Pose
This pose helps to strengthen the core muscles, improve balance and coordination, and increase stamina levels. To do this pose, stand upright with your feet hip-width apart and your hands towards your side. Take one step with your right foot forward and raise your arms above your head. Move your left leg upwards, keeping it straight, and bend until you are parallel to the floor.
