Q: How can I prevent my digestion from slowing down and getting clogged up? EXERCISE: Seated Spinal Twist: Sit on a yoga mat with your legs straight in front of you with your toes flexed. Bend your right knee and place your right foot on the outside of your left leg just below the knee. Place your right hand behind you on the mat and your left elbow against the outside of your right knee, keeping your fingers pointing straight up. Press into the right knee with your left elbow and twist. Look over your left shoulder. Hold for one minute, allowing the twist to deepen with each exhale. Switch sides.
