Even saying the word “bloat” can feel uncomfortable. You know that time of the month has snuck up on you when your jeans feel a little snugger than usual, even though you haven’t gorged on a big meal. 

Or, maybe it’s your body’s way of telling you that something you ate didn’t agree with you. Either way, sometimes it feels like there’s nothing else to do but lie back and rub your belly. Fortunately, there are plenty of therapeutic yoga poses that help to relieve the swelling and calm your stomach. Twists help speed up digestion, while inversions help release trapped gas and toxins. 

Try this sequence to alleviate your belly blues.
