Practice This Yoga Pose In The Morning To Energize Your Day

"Kickstart and energize your day before you even reach for your morning coffee."

We know yoga enhances muscular strength and flexibility, but some poses can even help with digestion.

Good digestion means a better start to your day, says yoga instructor Charlotte Singmin in the video above.

"Imagine wringing out your digestive organs in the same way you would wring out a washcloth," Singmin says.

By stimulating these organs, digestive juices flow more easily and help keep the body energized throughout the day.

This is because a healthy digestive system means the body can easily break down food and absorb essential nutrients, according to Eat Right Ontario.
