We usually gain some weight after the Christmas holidays. If you don’t want to sweat in the gym, we highly recommend these yoga poses for weight loss!
As the name suggests, your body looks like a boat in this position and stays in it for 10-15 seconds.
To do this asana, lie flat on the floor, hold your hands to the side and slowly lift your upper body and legs so that your body forms a V-shape.
Keep your hands straight and parallel to the floor and stay in this position for 10-20 seconds, then slowly lower back to your initial position.
Now lift your hands above your head and connect them and bend over, holding them together and repeating the exercise on the other side. Turn around again after 10 – 20 seconds, this time holding hands together.
To perform this asana, lie flat on your stomach and pose with your back to the wall and feet on the floor in front of you. Now hold your legs in your hands and stay in this position for as long as possible and slowly start to lift your upper body while lifting your legs.
Start by lying on your back and slowly raising your tailbone up and down in a straight line with your hands in front of your head and feet.
Bow pose (Dhanurasana)
This pose is comparatively easy to perform and can also be performed with other challenging asanas. Place your hands on your hips, tie your fingers together and use the adhesive muscles of your legs and ligaments in your stomach to hold and stretch your buttocks. Release your fingers and put your feet in front of you in a straight line with your arms behind your back on the floor.
Start by sitting on the floor in vajrasana, putting your stomach on your thighs and stretching your hands so that your palms touch the mat right in front of your head. If you are a beginner, it is okay if your head does not touch the mats, but if it does, you must start sitting up.
Hold this position for 10 – 20 seconds, then back down in vajrasana with hands in front of your head and feet on the floor.
Bridge pose (Setu bandha Sarvangasana)
Slowly lift your body off the mat and lie flat on your stomach using the pressure of your hands, and slowly lower back to the floor.
Your body should form a straight line from head to heel, your shoulders should be right behind your wrists and your hands and feet in front of you. Your wrists should both be on the mat, but not in the same direction as your arms and shoulders or hips.
Child’s pose (Balasana)
This position looks similar to the push-up position, but lies flat on your back and focuses on relaxing the body by inhaling through the nose and exhaling from the mouth. Hold this position for a few seconds while rotating your abdomen and then back on your knees and back again.
At the end of the asanas, perform the asana in the same position as the first time, but with a slightly different posture and position.
Yoga is a great way to improve your whole body, especially when you’re working from home. These yoga poses for weight loss are an excellent way to get rid of the few extra pounds you gained during the holidays!
