·4 min read

Yoga's popularity is growing worldwide, and the number of asanas that burn more calories than intense workouts is increasing. Countless poses will tone your body while also assisting you in losing weight. And many are unaware of yoga's numerous benefits, the most notable of which is weight loss.

Here are ten yoga asanas that you may do anywhere, at any time, to help you reduce more weight than heavy workouts -

Triangle pose (Trikonasana)

During this pose, maintain your feet wide apart and your hands parallel to the ground. Lean to your left and create as much touch as possible with your left hand. Maintain this position 10-15 seconds before moving to the other side. Asana's spinning and twisting action promotes gastrointestinal efficiency and helps reduce belly fat accumulation. The posture is most suitable for leg and arm muscles, facilitating the creation of new muscle tissue.

Warrior II pose (Virbhadrasana)

Slowly straighten your legs to make you more upright. Place the rear leg heels on the ground, ensuring the knees don't move too far from their initial posture. Holding your body balance in this position, strive to shift your upper body sideways. Both hands must be on each side. Keep this stance for at least five breaths before swapping and restarting the process. With each sharp breath intake, you'll notice increased concentration and blood circulation in your respiratory system. Keep a balanced distribution of body gravity on each body's four sides. You should also have your hands pointing down rather than upwards. Hold 15 seconds, repeat.

Upwards Dog

Lie on your stomach with your arms spreading forth and palms facing forward. Elevate your torso and look upwards, keeping your hands beneath your shoulders. Make sure your abdomen and lower body are flat on the ground. Stay 10 seconds, repeat.

Chair pose

Position yourself in a horizontal line, with your feet firmly gripped and your arms by your sides. Following that, raise your arms aloft so that both palms face each other and gently bend your knees to your chest, as you would in a squatting position. Your thigh and bottoms should be parallel to the ground. Hold for 15 seconds and then repeat.

Boat pose

Once in a position, your body resembles a sailboat, as the nickname implies. By lying parallel to the ground and placing your hands beside it, this asana is accomplished. Gradually lift your upper body and legs such that your arms and legs form a V shape. With your hands, maintain a horizontal line parallel to the ground. Maintain this pose for ten seconds and repeat.

Angle pose

As you stand upright, spread your feet and hips apart and keep your arms at your sides. Extend your arms upwards and around yourself in a tight embrace. Make a bending motion from your torso onto your left side with your hands clasped together. Repeat on the opposite side.

Bow pose (Dhanurasana)

First, position yourself flat on your stomach as you start to gradually elevate your core muscles, as you would in snake posture, ensure that both legs are raised simultaneously. Maintain the stance for as long as it is comfortable by firmly clasping both legs with both hands.

Bridge pose (Setu bandha Sarvangasana)

Lie on your back, with your knees bent and your feet flat on the ground. Elevate your buttocks and spine off the mat while maintaining a solid grip on your heels. Intertwine your index and middle fingers by placing your palms beneath your hips. Strengthening your lower body and back will require the usage of your glutes, hamstrings, and tummy. Releasing your fingers, slowly lower the spine to the ground. Relax and start the whole process again.

Child’s pose (Balasana)

Begin in Vajrasana by acquiring a comfortable mat position. Lower your head to the floor mat by placing your tummy on top of your thighs, spreading your arms, and reaching forward so that your hands hit the mat front. It should be in front of your head, and you should maintain that position. Maintain a 10-second position before relaxing.

Plank pose (Phalakasana)

Plank Pose is an exceptionally effective workout to help you lose weight and tone your abdominals. It's done with your chest supporting legs and hands supporting your lower back. As the stomach muscles contract and your back sink into the floor, your upper body and legs stretch and lean. Plank Pose is good for weight loss since it works both the back and abdomen. By focusing on your posture, you can reinforce and form your core muscles.
