Their great work especially demonstrated how elevating the hernia above the hips on a regular basis can be integral to the holistic healing process. There are several hatha yoga postures that the Hernia Coach performed regularly in order to produce the necessary effect. Most of the inverted hatha yoga asanas are quite effective in this manner.

Our recommendation is that inverted postures be performed whenever you are far away from your last meal. They should always be done slowly and carefully since few folks are used to doing these. For those who are overweight, extra caution is advised.

Here is an excellent hatha yoga posture to perform for reducing the hernia. Known as Viparita Karani, it works like a charm for many folks.
