This study describes two-dimensional peristaltic flow of non-Newtonian fluid through a porous asymmetric channel under the influence of the magnetic field. The slip effect is included in the model. The flow is investigated in a wave frame of reference moving with a velocity of the wave. The momentum equations are linearized using long wavelength and low Reynolds number approximation. The transformed equations have been solved numerically. Analytic solutions for stream function, velocity and pressure gradient are also obtained. The effects of various physical parameters of interest have been explained graphically. It is found that the size of the trapped bolus reduces for large value of the velocity slip parameter.
