Here is the first yoga pose to support good digestive health

Malasana, also known as Garland Pose, is a grounding pose.

Benefits: Improves posture, stretches the back muscles, elasticizes the knees and ankles, increases mobility in the hips, strengthens the abdomen, and helps improve digestive function.

Directions: Squat with your feet mat-width distance apart and your toes angled slightly out. Keep your heels on the floor, if you can. Separate your thighs slightly wider than your torso and exhale as you lean your torso forward, fitting it in between your thighs. Press your elbows against your inner knees, bringing your palms together in prayer position (Anjali Mudra). Lengthen the spine and press thighs open. Hold for 5-10 breaths.

Contraindications: Avoid if you have low back or knee injuries.
