Yoga for Hernia prevention?

(October 8, 2013)

Yoga for hernia prevention is primarily focused on strengthening up the abdominal muscles and wall in order to ensure that the organs are held properly in their place. Yoga is a very effective holistic method of being able to achieve this and there are a number of poses that will help you develop this inner strength. For instance, one of the more highly regarded yoga poses for hiatal hernias is the half boat pose. Here is how you can perform this pose:

  • Firstly you will need to sit on the floor with your legs stretched out in front of you.
  • Place your hands on the back of your head, interlocking the fingers.
  • While exhaling, you should then simultaneously recline your back while also raising your legs from the floor. It is important to ensure that the knees are kept tight while the toes are pointed out.
  • Hold onto this position for about 20 to 30 seconds while breathing normally throughout.

Suffering from a hernia is a rather debilitating and painful experience to go through. Hernia is primarily the result of the weakening of the muscles that are concerned with holding all the internal organs in their respective places. This leads to an abnormal change in the internal structures that causes a noticeable external protrusion under the abdominal area.

It is important to have a yoga instructor guide you through the poses of yoga for hernia.
