This Yoga Trend Is Weird AF And You Need To See It

IDK if I should be disgusted or amazed...

Posted on

OK, so you've probably noticed by now that yoga is pretty strange, right?

WTF is going on here?

OK but now take everything you thought you knew about yoga and throw it out the window because I'm about to ROCK YOUR WORLD with this messed up pose.

Watch this woman's stomach!

Am I the only one freaked out by this?

This exercise is called "Nauli" and it's actually an ancient technique designed to detox and massage your internal organs. It's recently taken Instagram by storm!

You start by completely exhaling so your stomach looks all collapsed and weird like this:

After exhaling completely, you pull your abdomen under your rib cage and contract your abs in a circular motion. So, it ends up looking like this crazy-ass contortion exercise.

It's actually healthy and can help tone your abs and aid in digestion!

HOLD UP THO - don't start contorting your stomach just yet. If you want to try this at home, there's some tips you should follow.

1. Only attempt this on a full stomach or when you're constipated

You wanna be 100% empty so you don't throw up everywhere

2. If you have no idea what you're doing, consult a yoga expert before screwing up your body!
