5 Fat burning yoga poses

Some people are under the impression that yoga is only to relax, soothe and heal the mind and body. But what they don’t know is that yoga can assist in weight loss as well.

You can melt all that fat away by forming muscles. If you practice yoga regularly you are helping your body boost its metabolism.

Here are 7 yoga moves that will sculpt your body in no time:

  • Crow

Plant your palms shoulder-distance apart on the mat. Press into your fingertips, look slightly forward, and take your knees into the back of your upper arms, aiming for your armpits.

Bend your elbows and one at a time lift your feet off the ground and also take you heels to touch your butt.

Breathe here for 5 deep breaths.

  • Chair

While standing, sink your hips down like as if you would sit in a chair with your arms high. Look in front of your knees and make sure you can see your toes. If you can’t, sit back until you can. Take care to drop your shoulders away from your ears.

Breathe here for 5 deep breaths.

  • High Lunge Twist

Take a high lunge with your right foot forward and inhale. Straighten your legs and lift your arms high. On your exhale, come back down to high lunge, reaching your left arm forward and your right arm back. Inhale back to center.

Do 10 to 20 repetitions. Repeat on the opposite side.

  • Dolphin Push Ups

On all fours, place your forearms on the ground shoulder-distance apart. Then tuck your toes and lift your hips. From here, start to lower your chin toward your thumbs on an inhale, coming almost to a forearm plank but not quite since your feet are too close to your elbows for that. Use your exhale to lift back to dolphin, raising your hips back toward the ceiling. Do 20 reps.

  • Tip Toe

With arms by your sides and keeping your toes and knees together, rise up on the balls of your feet and squat, lowering your butt to hover just about your heels. One at a time, try to take your hands together at the center of your chest and stay here for 5 deep breaths.
