Hi Sid, Do not worry about it much. We have a very simple mudra that you can do at any time and at any place. The impact will be seen after 2 weeks so please keep doing it daily. Also start doing some early morning walk or jogging and walk for 10 - 20 min before you go to sleep daily. This will help your digestive system. https://medictips.com/the-vayu-mudra-mudra-vigyan-for-gastric-control/ https://medictips.com/apan-vayu-mudra-mrit-sanjivani-mudra-the-heart-posture/ Along with this there are some other ways that you can follow parallely. Like having light food at night, not missing the breakfast and also having aloe-vera juice.
