I am going to show you another sequence you can do in your home to assist with your digestion.
To begin this sequence you need to lay on your back with your arms and legs relaxed. Breathe in and out 10 times. Then bring your right knee in towards your chest. Interlace your fingers around the knee. Your head stays on the ground. Elbows are lifted up and out to the side to keep the lungs open.
Then without forcing the knee, round up and gaze down the length of the extended leg. Hold for the count of 5 then roll down. [shown in picture] Lower the right leg and repeat with the left leg.
Now bring both your knees into your chest, and then extend away to arms length. You will repeat this movement in and out several times. The reason I recommend this pose is this is a great massage for the lower digestive system, as well as your lower back. I like to take care of your back as well.
Repeat the entire sequence 4-5 times then extend the legs out and relax in resting pose.
Now remember if you have any questions in regards to these poses please email me at email@example.com
Yours in Health
