5 Yoga Asanas For A Flat Belly
To get a flat and toned stomach you need utter dedication and strength. Practice these 5 yoga asanas for a flat belly.
1. Adho Mukha Svanasana (Downward Dog)
To practice this, place your hands on the floor and bend over from standing position. Keep your hands out until they meet the mat. This should be done in a way which resembles a downward “V”. Further, take your legs apart to shoulder-width and spread your fingers apart. Press through your palms and hips outwards. Relax and hold this position!
2. Balasana (Child’s Pose)
To practice this, come on your hand and knees and spread them. While keeping your hips backward. The next thing is to drop your head between your arms while your hands stay on the ground. Reach your hands in front of you and rest your forehead on the floor. Exhale when you go down and inhale when you go up.
3. Parighasana (Gate Pose)
To perform this, come to your knees and keep one leg outside on the side. Keep your foot on the ground, rest the same arm on the extended leg. Lift your other arm up and stretch them to the opposite side. When you do this, look up to your raised arm and then reverse the movement. In between all this, keep your hips forward so that you don’t sink out of the posture.
4. Bhujangasana (Cobra Pose)
To perform this, lie down keeping your legs apart than your hips. Place your palms on the mat under the chest and keep your fingers pointing in the forward direction. The next thing is, press your elbows to your ribcage and squeeze your shoulder blades. Inhale as you lift your head and chest off the floor. Stand on your toes and take deep breaths. Keep your neck stretched out and hold the position. Exhale and come back to your original position.
Shavasana is the easiest of all. To perform this, lie down on your back. Keep all your organs wide open and close your eyes. Meditate and watch yourself carefully. Observe what’s happening around. This will give you mental peace and will also in cleaning your body from within.
