Yoga Asanas for Flat Stomach
Bikini season is about to be upon us. Is your bikini tummy in place? Try these fun and easy yoga asanas for flat stomach.
Yoga has always been an all over body toner. It increases flexibility, strength, and you can use the yoga asanas to flatten your stomach. All of the poses seek to get mind body and spirit in line. Strong abdominal muscles bring support to back muscles.
These exercises/poses can be used to burn fat when done in a routine. Individual asanas for flat stomach can be done in sets and not as a part of a routine to target the belly. When done as a routine as a fluid motion generates energy and heat which is used to internally burn fat.
From Plank (a), Bend your elbows 90 degrees, keeping your upper arms close to your body and lowering your shoulders to elbow height. Your upper back should be broad and the tips of your shoulder blades should be drawn down your back. Roll forward a little on toes to put the bulk of the weight on the section where the elbows are positioned (b). Return to Plank. Ideally, when practiced enough, you should be able to balance body at the elbows because of strong flat stomach muscles.
Sit upright on the floor, then lean back, extending your arms straight in front of you and lifting your legs together off the floor. This is Pike (a). Hold for three breaths, then lower your back and legs toward the floor without letting them touch it. This is Open Pike (b). Hold for three breaths; return to Pike. Repeat 10 times.
For some people, following a complete step by step program is much easier than doing these Yoga asanas on their own. For those, I recommend trying ShapeShifter Yoga program.
Have a Happy Healthy Day!
