Any activity which involves a twisting or massaging motion of the trunk, or lower abdomen can stimulate the bowels. That doesn't mean that you'll suddenly have a bowel movement (aka take a poop) during your downward-facing-dog, but it can help to increase circulation and help your body to move everything through your system smoothly.
