Do These 9 Yoga Poses for a Perky Butt | Yoga Tutorial
Looking to give your butt a little lift? Yoga can quickly lead you to the butt you’ve always wanted. Without further ado, here’s 9 yoga poses for a perky butt.
You don’t need the traditional squats, lunges, and gym equipment to get a nice butt. Practicing these yoga poses will shape, round, and lift the booty.
There are 3 primary muscles to target when working on shaping the booty:
1. The gluteus maximus
2. The gluteus medius
3. The gluteus minimus
We will walk through 9 yoga poses to maximize muscle use and stimulate growth in each area of the butt.
Repeat each move for 5 breaths.
Let’s shape that assana!
▶ Target: Gluteus Maximus
The maximus is the primary gluteal (butt) muscle. Extending the thigh backward into any hip extension will activate the maximus.
Check out the article for photos of each pose:
Poses that will strengthen the gluteus maximus are:
Crescent Lunge, Warrior 3, and Standing Splits.
▶ Target: Gluteus Medius
The medius is situated on the outer surface of the pelvis and works to abduct (pull the thigh away from the midline). Working the medius will tone the upper hips and create a strong and well-rounded side booty.
Work the medius by practicing Half-Moon (Ardha Chandrasana), Goddess pose (Utkata Konasana) and Reverse Plank.
▶ Target: Gluteus Minimus
The minimus is the part of the booty that is responsible for “THE LIFT”.
Practicing Bridge pose (Setu Bandha Sarvangasana), Bow pose (Dhanurasana), and Locust pose (Salabhasana) will target this portion of the glutes.
