Learn how to relieve constipation and promote healthy bowel function with Dustienne Miller, a board certified women’s health physical therapist and Kripalu-trained yoga teacher, as she invites you to use breath and gentle yoga postures to balance the nervous system and muscles that influence gut function.
Each clearly-demonstrated movement is designed to guide you safely through a home yoga practice, created specifically to support treatment and management of constipation.
This easy-to-follow, stress-relieving home practice serves as a holistic adjunct to traditional medical approaches. This tailored program contains two sections:
Asana (15 minutes)
Asana incorporates gentle and slow movements combined with conscious breathing.
The design of this flow
- mobilizes fascial connections to the colon and entire GI system,
- decreases holding patterns of pelvic floor muscles, and
- encourages breathing techniques to optimize the relationship between the diaphragm and your pelvic floor.
Relaxation (10 minutes)
The relaxation allows you to experience the physical letting go of your muscles relaxing and stress melting away.
The parasympathetic nervous system response (rest and digest) is increased and your body, mind, and spirit are allowed time to integrate the changes that occurred during your practice.
Each flow works to counteract the mechanical causes that contribute to constipation. By integrating these flows into your overall pelvic health strategy, you create another opportunity for self-healing and increase the potential to live your healthiest, happiest life.
