5 yoga poses to improve kidney health

Often overlooked, we focus on the importance of kidney health and what you can do to maintain it.

The kidneys perform three essential body functions: regulating water in your body, removing waste from the body and producing hormones that help regulate blood pressure. Exercise plays an important role in kidney health as it improves kidney function, reduces the risk of kidney cancer and improves the quality of life for survivors of kidney cancer. Jock Yoga founder Michael DeCorte suggests these five yoga poses to help maintain kidney health and build overall body strength while you’re at it. Go through the gallery above for each pose.
