November 24, 2015 2 min read

Didn't anyone ever tell you that complaining gets you nowhere?

When you eat too much, the feeling of fullness can overcome you, leaving you constantly complaining about just how crappy you feel ... but this doesn't do much for what's going on internally, does it?

Yoga poses to alleviate your feeling of fullness.Rather than announce to the world what's going on, do something about it by boosting your digestion, opening the front of your body and increasing your circulation to the abdominal organs. How so? Just do some yoga! Certified yoga instructor Sarah Levey, who is the co-founder of Y7 Studio in New York City, demonstrated her best moves when fullness hits below.

1. Knees Into Chest

Yoga poses to alleviate your feeling of fullness.
This pose promotes movement in the stomach post eating. Just lie on your back and tuck your knees into your chest, placing your palms below your knees. Then, pull them into your chest and inhale. Release the pose on the exhale.

2. Seated Spinal Twist

Yoga poses to alleviate your feeling of fullness.
This pose sends blood to your digestive organs. Just sit up on your mat, your legs extended in front of you, and bend your knees in. Place the sole of your left foot onto the mat. Your right elbow will cross your body as you twist to the left. Repeat on the opposite side. [bctt tweet="6 Yoga Poses to Alleviate Your Overeating Discomfort"]

3. Chair Pose

Yoga poses to alleviate your feeling of fullness.
​To stimulate your abdominal organs, which are necessary for proper digestion, do this pose. Simply stand with your feet hip-width apart and toes facing forward. Then, sit your hips back like you're in a chair and reach your arms overhead. Your chest should be high and your shoulders should be away from your ears.

4. High Lunge Variation

Yoga poses to alleviate your feeling of fullness.
This pose opens the front of the body, stretching the stomach, soothing indigestion and relieving constipation. Just stand at the top of your mat, take a step back with your left leg, bend your right knee, and then clasp your hands behind your back to open the chest. Do again on the other side.

5. Bridge Pose

Yoga poses to alleviate your feeling of fullness.
This pose opens the front of the body, stimulating the abdominal organs for digestions. To do it, lie in your back, knees bent and souls of your feet on the floor. Hips-distance apart is best. Then, lift your hips up, clasping your hands under your body.

6. Legs Up the Wall

Yoga poses to alleviate your feeling of fullness.
This pose stimulates fluid circulation, which encourages digestion as well. To do it, lie on your back with your butt against a couch or a wall, then extend your legs straight up. Your hands will rest at your sides. ​ Do you ever practice any of these poses for digestion? Source: Cosmopolitan

Shipping & Delivery

Due to COVID-19, shipping systems the world over are experiencing abnormal delays. There is an enormous demand on postal and delivery services as online shopping has skyrocketed, due to store closures and stay-at-home mandates. This is an unprecedented situation, and we are working around the clock to fulfill your orders as quickly as possible. To be clear, we are filling orders in 4-6 days, and we are shipping immediately after that. Once shipped, our shipping partner, UPS, will get your order out to you as quickly as possible. Thanks for your support and understanding.

Are you in Canada? Specifically, are you outside of a metropolitan centre? We need to alert you to a disruption in shipping due to COVID-19. Our preferred shipping provider, UPS, has informed us that they cannot guarantee express shipping for many locations. We have also seen that packages delivered to Toronto, Ottawa, Vancouver, etc, are not waylaid, but packages delivered to areas just outside of these cities are being held in transit for days or even weeks. UPS has discontinued their guarantee of 1-4 day delivery, which you can read more about here. Therefore, we can guarantee early fulfillment but not early delivery of our goods from our warehouse to your door at this time.

 

We want you to start your fitness journey with us as quickly as possible, that’s why we send every package to the USA & Canada via expedited or standard shipping with our partners at UPS. Once your order is received and processed, it typically takes 2-4 days to get to you once it leaves our warehouse. That’s our commitment and we stand by it.

We ship within Canada and the United States via UPS with Standard & Expedited shipping (whichever is faster)

For locations outside of the US and Canada, we ship using FedEx International (EUROPE and Other Nations), which is usually in transit for 7-10 business days, depending on location.

We ship all of our physical products with UPS, from our warehouse location in Kingston, Ontario, Canada. Delays caused due to custom withholds are not included in these estimated delivery times.

Returns & Exchanges

BodyRock Equipment

We offer a 30-day return policy, as long as: it is not more than 30 days past the date of delivery; and your item is in its original condition and packaging with the original order number. Refunds will be issued when the equipment is received back to the BodyRock warehouse, minus the original cost of shipping, and the customer is responsible for the costs of return shipping. To request a refund on physical product purchases, please contact us.

Digital Products

We cannot issue refunds on digital goods such as e-books or videos, as these are non-tangible goods that are irrevocable once the order is placed.

All of the BodyRock clothing is made to order and so is final sale. If you have any questions about sizing prior to placing your order, please contact us.
