Yoga exercises to reduce belly fat and waist size
- The downward dog
Begin this position on all fours, with hands directly below the shoulders and knees directly below the hips. Move your hands forward a few inches and separate the fingers. Press your palms on the carpet and bring your hips up in an inverted position V. The knees should be flexed slightly to avoid blocking them and cut off circulation. Hold this position while inhaling and exhaling three times.
- The child pose
Sit on your heels with your hands on the floor. Pull your chest forward and rest your forehead on the rug or carpet. Lower your knees as much as you can and extend your arms outward. Inhale and exhale while maintaining this posture. Like the previous posture, this is a great warm-up, or you can use it as a cooling after a workout.
- The cobra
Begin this position by lying face down on the floor with your palms and thumbs below the shoulders and the top of the feet against the ground. Push your hands on the floor, raise the chest off the floor so that your back is curved. Remember, do not push yourself too much. Go to the floor and repeat the position.
- The bow (works arms, legs and abs)
Lie face down on the carpet. Bend the knees and bring the feet towards the head. Reach your arms and grab the ankles. Lift the shoulders off the floor while you pull the ankles. Hold the breath from the inside out and then release it.
- The ship or paripurna navasana (works the abs and back)
Sit on the carpet with knees bent and feet flat on the floor. Your hands should be on the thighs, head straight. Support your back 45 degrees, and lift your legs so that your feet point towards the ceiling about 45 degrees off the ground making a V shape with your body. Extend the arms so they are parallel to the floor. Repeat three to five times.
