At mindbodygreen, we believe that movement is an essential part of life. Movement, like food, can be its own form of medicine—it can connect us to the earth, to our community, and to ourselves. That's why we created Movement Cures, a video series that underscores our bodies' ability to heal itself through movement. From common aches and pains to the occasional (or chronic) bloating, we're asking experts for their best answers to our everyday woes and sharing Movement Cures that can help you feel better.

For certified personal trainer, sub-elite marathon runner, and Flywheel instructor Emily Fayette, doing this move—which she's dubbed the "double knee torso-twist"—helps relieve a bit of the tension and discomfort caused by bloating.
