Wind Relieving Pose or Pawanmuktasana in Sanskrit (Sanskrit words “pawan,” which means air or wind, and “mukta,” which means release, and “Asana” means posture) is a yoga pose that is also known as the “wind-releasing pose” or “gas-releasing pose.” The final position of this asana helps release the trapped gas (air) in the lower digestive tract.
It is said that Pawanamuktasana helps release undesirable air not just from the digestive tract but also from the joints of the body. It is believed that this asana has a positive influence on the physical as well as the spiritual level.
Pawanmuktasana is a simple posture that can be done by people of all ages and abilities.
