The move is technically called Nauli and is supposed to cleanse the digestive system while strengthening abdominal muscles.

This traditional yoga move has been around for centuries but has only recently taken off on Instagram.

According to Nauli.org, the visually unsettling move cleanses the internal organs and tones the abdominal region via a side-to-side rolling motion of the abdominal muscles.”

The website also suggests learning from a skilled yoga teacher as it can cause discomfort if done improperly.

Would you give this yoga move a go?
