It’s caused by eating too much food in one sitting, or by adding certain food or drinks to your diet plan.
But, you could get rid of stomach bloating by doing some easy yoga poses, revealed nutritionist Maeve Madden.
The “rescue remedy” yoga exercises are best done right before bed, she added.
The ‘arching pigeon’ pose starts on your hands and knees. Then, bring your right knee forward, so your right foot is underneath your left hip, while your left leg is extended out behind you.
“Flatten the top of your left foot into the floor, and sink your pelvis into the mat,” said Madden.
“Slowly walk your hands back so that they are parallel to, or just behind, your hips.”
Keep your head directly above your pelvis, while drawing back your shoulder blades and extending your spine.
“Your head should be extended back past your hops so that it is now parallel to your bum.”
Hold the yoga pose for between 10 and 15 seconds, before swapping over and repeating with alternate legs.
The ‘spinal twist’ yoga pose starts by lying flat on your back with your knees bent, and feet flat on the floor.
Keep your arms resting by your sides at a comfy distance away from your body.
“Drop your right knee to the floor and allow your left leg/knee to rest over the right leg,” said Madden.
Hold the yoga pose for between 10 and 15 seconds at a time.
Then, slowly return to the original position and repeat the pose on the other side.
Start this yoga pose with your feet slightly more than shoulder-width apart, said he nutritionist.
Point your feet outwards away from each other, and then bend your knees so that you bring yourself into a full squat position. Be sure to keep your back straight while squatting.
“Bring your hands together in front go you so that your elbows are touching your knees.
“Return to your starting position and repeat.”
