Reduce belly fat

Yoga is a fun and relaxing way to improve your physical health, mental well-being, and energy levels. It also has many benefits for digestion and weight loss. In fact, according to some studies on yoga, it can help you burn more calories in a shorter period of time than other types of exercise. But what about the poses that specifically target the muscles around your midsection? Here are five that will make it easier for you to slim down:

Bakasana: The crane pose

The crane pose is an excellent exercise for strengthening the core. It can be done anywhere, and it tones the abs more than any other yoga pose. This posture also relieves stress, back pain, and fatigue while improving flexibility.

To practice the crane pose:

  • Stand straight with your feet hip-width apart
  • Bend your knees and bring them together so that they touch (the feet should still be touching each other)
  • Touch your hands together above your head
  • Lift up on to tiptoe while keeping your heels on the ground

Bhujangasana: The cobra pose

  • Lie on the floor with your legs stretched out in front of you and the soles of your feet touching.
  • Bend both arms at the elbow, with palms facing down toward the ground; place your hands under your shoulders so that they support part of your body weight as you lift into Cobra pose.
  • As you inhale, press down into both hands while lifting up through your chest as if stretching like a cobra’s hood from its spine to its tailbone (in this case, from chin to heels).
  • Take one breath here before repeating it once more for two repetitions total (and two breaths). If this is too difficult for you at first—and it may be if you haven’t done any yoga before—try placing blocks or a bolster under each hand for some extra support until you get stronger in this pose!

Halasana: The plough posture

The plough posture is a great way to strengthen your abdominal muscles, improve digestion, and reduce bloating. Here’s how to do it:

  • Lie on your back with knees bent and feet flat on floor; arms are outstretched above head in line with ears or parallel with shoulders if you’re more flexible (if you can’t reach at all yet, don’t worry—try just lying there for now).
  • Inhale deeply through the nose as you lift both legs off floor into air, straightening them as much as possible without straining neck or back; keep looking up toward ceiling throughout movement so that neck remains long and relaxed (like an inverted V-shape).
  • Keep feet together if possible (this will help keep pelvis stable) while holding this position for 15–30 seconds before exhaling downward slowly into starting position; repeat twice more if able to maintain focus on breathing without getting dizzy or uncomfortable

Phalakasana: The plank pose

The Plank Pose is a surefire way to strengthen your core and improve balance. Strengthens the lower back and abdominal muscles; improves posture; increases stamina

How To Do It:

  • Lay flat on the floor with your legs straight, arms at sides, palms facing down. 
  • Keeping your body in one straight line, lift your hips off the floor while keeping knees on the ground. 
  • Hold this position for 10 to 15 seconds, then release back down to start position. Repeat five times as many times as you want or can do without feeling exhausted.

Bandha Sarvagasana: The bridge pose

The bridge pose is one of the best yoga poses for losing weight around your midsection. The more you do it, the stronger your core becomes, which helps improve posture and reduce back pain. It’s also an effective way to strengthen other muscles in the body such as thighs, glutes and arms.

To do a bridge pose: 

  • Lie on your back with knees bent at 90 degrees and feet flat on floor about hip-width apart. 
  • Place hands palms down underneath shoulders with fingers pointing forward or gently clasped together behind head for neck support 
  • Squeeze buttock muscles together to elevate hips into tabletop position, keeping pelvis tilted downward so that lower back remains slightly arched off floor;
  •  hold this position for 30 seconds before returning to start position. Repeat five times daily until you have mastered it then work up from there using weights or ankle weights!

Virbhadrasana: The warrior pose

The warrior pose is one of the most popular yoga poses. It’s a great way to open your hips and shoulders, and it strengthens your legs. The warrior pose is also known as the “warrior 2” because you’re standing on one leg like a soldier in battle. To do this pose:

  • Stand with your feet hip-width apart, toes pointing forward or slightly turned out (depending on which feels better for you). If you have tight hamstrings, bend at the knees so that they’re parallel to the floor before proceeding.
  • Raise up onto the ball of your back foot and step forward with your front leg until it’s about three feet from its original position (you can measure if you want). Your weight should be on both feet evenly now instead of just one side; keep everything balanced!
  • Bring arms overhead into an “L” shape with elbows bent at 90 degrees; palms facing downwards towards each other for balance purposes only (they don’t actually have to touch). This gesture resembles someone who has just won a fight—hence why we call this pose “warrior.”


So, these are the best yoga poses to reduce belly fat. We’ve seen how they work and why they’re so effective at toning up your midsection. The bottom line is: if you want to lose that extra weight around your stomach and love handles, then you need to do this regularly in order to see results.
