Burn Belly Fat At Home With These 5 Yoga Exercises



Belly fat is something nearly everybody has to battle at some point in their life. Even if you eat a balanced diet and work out regularly, getting a flat stomach can definitely take some time. However, you shouldn’t be discouraged because some easy yoga moves will work wonders on your midsection.

1.Bow Posture
The bow posture is ideal for strengthening the core and tightening abdominal muscles. It offers a full body stretch that increases energy and promotes easy-digestion.

Lie stomach down on the mat with your legs stretched out and your arms to your side.
Bend the knees upward while reaching your arms back to hold your ankles or feet.
Hold the position 15-30 seconds while breathing normally.
Exhale and return to the lying position allowing your body to rest for 15-seconds.
Repeat 5-times with rest time in between each pose.

2.Pontoon Posture
The pontoon pose focuses on the back and leg muscles which ultimately helps reduce stored fat in the waist.
Start in a lying position on your back with your legs stretched out and your arms down at your side.
Inhale as you lift your legs up while stretching your toes and feet. Your legs should remain straight.
Form a 45-degree angle with your body by reaching your arms toward your extended legs.
Breath normally as you hold the post for 15-seconds.
Release the pose and allow your body to rest for 15-seconds.
Repeat the pose 5 times with a rest in between each one.

3.Cobra Posture
The cobra pose strengthens the spine and upper body — it proves to be a multi-muscle workout.
Start by lying stomach down on the mat.
Stretch your legs away from your body as you pull your arms in under your shoulders.
Allow your toes and chin to touch the floor.
Breathe in deep and slow as you thrust your body chest upward.
Hold the pose for 15-30 seconds and slowly exhale.
Rest for 15 seconds.
Repeat 5 times with a break in between each pose. 

4.Boat Pose

Similar to the bow pose, the boat pose offers a workout for the belly, back, arms, and legs.

Start by lying on your back with your legs stretched and your arms at your side.

Hold this pose as you inhale and exhale 10 times.
Repeat this pose 5 times with 15-seconds of rest in between. 

The bridge pose has a number of benefits including relief for stiff muscles, strengthening the hips and spine while also stretching the abdominal muscles to promote useful exercise.

Start by lying on your back.
Exhale as you push off the floor with your feet.
Raise your body so that your buttocks and back are off the floor, but your neck remains down.
Push your hands down on the ground for additional support.
Hold the position for as long as you can.
