How Squatty Potties Work

Updated: May 27, 2022

Wonder how squatty potties work? They help change the angle of the rectum from 100° to 120° which can make bowel movements feel easier in some bodies.

In other countries, many bathrooms use a squat-like toilet. If you're not quite ready to commit to a squatty potty, you can try a yoga pose called malasana before bowel movements.

Block optional. Feet wide, heels in toes out for today. Squat on down. Place the elbows on the inside of the knees if that feels okay for you. And rest for a few breaths.
