4 effective yoga asanas for losing your weight

Notice: DO NOT, UNDER ANY CONDITION, OVER-WORK YOUR BODY ALL ON A SUDDEN. THIS CAUSES MORE HARM THAN GOOD.

Start light, gradually build your stamina and work your way up to a strenuous regime.
Yoga is not a spot reduction treatment. It takes time and diligence. But it works. Slowly but surely. Without any harmful side effects. Now let us go though a few yoga ASANAS to reduce body weight.

1) PASCHIMOTTOLASANA

  • sit with your legs outstretched in front.
    keep your spine straight.
  • place your arms straight at your sides.
    take a deep breath.
  • gradually raise your arms and start bending forward.
    make sure your knees do not bend upwards in the process.
  • bring your nose as close to your knees as possible.
    touch the soles of your feet with your hands.
  • stay in the position, hold your breath and count upto 10.
  • gently getup and sit in the initial position while letting your breath out.
    Repeat for 10 to 20 times, depending on your stamina.

2) DHANURASANA

  • lie down on your front.
    bent your legs upwards from the knee.
  • lift your arms from the shoulders and try to grip the ankles. This may not happen in the first attempt, then try to hold the toes in that case.
  • use your arms to pull your legs up. The principle behind this pose is to look like a bow string. The tauter you can draw, the better.
  • stay fixed in this position and (breathe in + count up to 5 + breathe out) for 20 to 25 times, depending on your stamina.
    gently let go of your ankles and stretch out to take a few deep breaths. Get up once your body calms down.

3) BHUJANGASANA

  • lie down on your front.
  • bend your arms at elbows to bring your hands next to your chest on both sides.
  • keep your legs joint / close together.
  • now apply pressure on your hands so that the whole body weight rests on them. Raise your upper body on this support.
    this rising up should happen with your back arching up from your waist.
  • the legs remain planted firmly on the ground.
  • stay fixed in this position and (breathe in + count up to 5 + breathe out) for 20 to 25 times, depending on your stamina.
    when you are done, gently lie down and straighten your arms out.
  • take a few deep breaths. Get up once your body calms down.

4) CAT BACK POSE

  • get down on your hands and knees (um… wait, that came out wrong!).
  • lift your face. Try to look upwards. Your back arches up from the waist.
  • take a deep breath. ( in pose 1 of the picture below ).
  • while exhaling, bring your face down, your chin inwards towards your chest.
  • puff your back up, you look like an angry kitten. Hence the name.
