The feeling of acid in the stomach
Yoga breathing can help in eliminating nuisance when you feed up from the stomach into the esophagus. Sometimes this problem can be solved by calming the nervous system through the so-called breathing from the stomach.

Lie on the floor and breathe deeply so that your belly rises and falls as you breathe in and breathe out. If you are not yet able to take a break and lie down on the floor, this exercise can still be done during the day. Sit and breathe (corrected back, sternum raise, knees below hips). In this way, the air enters deeper. It is also advised a lot of movement. Sitting in one position each day is detrimental to the organism. Then the metabolism slows down, and the heart rate and oxygen levels. Breathing should be a movement of each cell in the body, says Leslie Howard, yoga teacher from San Francisco.
