Wellness expert Nadya Andreeva gets on stage in front of an audience and asks them one very important question: “How many of you have had a satisfying poop this morning?”

She gets mostly laughs, but a few people raise their hands. OK, it’s hard not to laugh when grown-ups talk about bowel movements, but the Happy Belly author is talking about something important: good digestive health.

According to Nadya, there are over 100 million Americans who don’t have regular bowel movements. If you’re one of them, you might want to check out this list of foods that aid in digestion!

“Digestion is the cornerstone of health and you have to empty out your bowels every single day to maintain good health,” she says in the Ted Talk below. “You’ll notice that not one healthy dog goes to bathroom only twice a week, they go three times a day.”

So what’s all the weird “tummy tucking” about? The technique is called “Nauli,” a yoga exercise that aids in cleaning the abdominal region.

Essentially by using these muscle movements, you give your digestive organs and small intestine a massage with your abdominal muscles. While, at first, it may look as easy as sucking in your stomach, Nadya shows us that this technique requires practice, although she says it only takes about two weeks for most to get it.

Watch below as she is able to contort and move her belly in ways you’ve never seen before!
