4 yoga postures for nausea

  • Virasan or the hero represent
  • Lying Viragana
  • Buddha Konasana or the shoemaker’s pose
  • Viparita Karani or feet up the wall create

Try virasana, kneeling down so that your hips touch the ground, and the heels touch the sides of your hips. Raise your arms above your head and breathe. You can also recline the virassana. To perform baddha konasana, sit down, lift your feet forward and make the sole. Breathe a few minutes. Or try viparita karani, lying on the ground and laying your feet on the wall.

Over the past couple of weeks my husband and I started gastric flu. Fortunately for him, after the second day he had no symptoms. For me they stretched on, and, of course, it was one thing that I hate the most. Nausea. Other symptoms that I think might be better, but I’ll be the first to tell you that I’m the biggest weakling when it comes to nausea. Can not cope with nausea.

Did you know that nausea is a more common sign of a heart attack in women than in men?

Yoga creates postures for nausea

I started combing all my books and favorite yoga websites to find poses that could help me with my nausea and found some ideas. I pulled out my rug and gave 3 of them a try, and almost instantly felt some relief. For an hour I did not have any nausea, and I could sleep comfortably for the first time in 5 days. Success!

The only trick that night was, I could not stand upright more than a couple of minutes before nausea started, but by the next morning I felt much better. I did these postures for the next few days, when I started to feel nausea, stomach cramps, and also before going to bed. They worked by all means!

1. Virasana (the pose of the hero)


  • Go to the place where you almost sat down on your knees with your heels under your hips.
  • Kneeling together, bring the heels wider than the width of the hips, and then sit between the heels.
  • If you are uncomfortable sitting with your hips to the very floor between the heels, use a pillow, a blanket or chin under your thighs to rise slightly off the floor.
  • To ease the nausea, I raised my hands, bent down in my elbows and laid them on my head. This creates a space in the abdominal cavity, lifting the ribs and relieving pressure from the stomach, diaphragm and liver.
  • Hold this position for at least 10 deep breaths.

Warning: at first it will be intense. But for me this posture had the most noticeable relief.


2. Recovering Viragana

This is a variation of virasana. You just need to lie on your back to do it.

3. Baddha Konasana (pose of the shoemaker)


  • Go to the sitting place on the rug, legs in front of you.
  • Collect the soles and collect them as close as possible to the hips.
  • Breathe in this position for a few minutes.

Option: Sulta Baddha Konasana

You can also make this posture in the supine position, which I did. Begin by lying on your back, lifting your legs to the position mentioned above, and lower your arms over your head.

4. Viparita Karani (Feet up the wall)

For this pose, you will need a pillow or blanket. Start by sitting sideways against the wall.


  • Hold your hips as close as possible to the wall, lay on your side, and then roll on your back, lifting your legs to the wall.
  • Bend your knees, bring the soles of your feet to the wall and press them to your legs to pull your hips off the floor long enough for you to slide a pillow under your hips.
  • Then gently lower your hips onto the pillow, straighten your legs and leave them on the wall.
  • Close your eyes and breathe deeply. You can stay in this position for as long as you need with an interval of 8-10 minutes.

The first night I was in it for about 30 minutes, with a minute break between the intervals. I was so relaxed that I almost fell asleep a couple of times.

* On the side note: This is one of my favorite yoga postures ever! This is good for many things, and now I can add another list. This gave the maximum relaxation of the 3 poses that I did.
