Yoga for ibs and overactive bladder


What poses and techniques help relieve irritable bowel syndrome and an overactive bladder?


Hi K99.

Core-compressing poses are beneficial to release gas and abdominal tension. Some asana included in this category are forward fold, ragdoll, happy baby, and any poses involving binds and inversions.

As far as overactive bladder- try core-STRENGTHENING exercises to increase endurance in the abdominal core muscles like your bladder and surrounding areas. This includes, but is not limited to boat pose, cobra, and you can basically engage your core in any pose!

Hope this helps <3
