As the Crow Flies
Eliminate Your Problems
If you eat three meals a day, you should move your bowels as much. If this is not the case, or if there is an issue with things moving too slowly or too quickly, try Crow Pose.
Simply stand with feet pointed straight ahead, about hips’ width apart. Raise the arms so they are perpendicular to the body, fingers straight ahead, palms down. Then lower yourself into a squat, doing your best to keep the feet pointed straight ahead, the back in a straight line up and down. Synchronize breath with the movement by inhaling in the up position and exhaling as you squat. Start with a few and work up to 3 minutes worth. Not only will you get regular, you will tone your hips, thighs and rear. This asana (posture) also invigorates the cardiovascular system, getting your heart and your butt in gear.
