Yoga exercises do not only tighten your muscles but also increase the energy levels and flexibility, strengthen the body and improve your health, as well as relieve stress. All this can be done through these simple and effective poses!
1. Goddess Squat Pose
This is a great exercise for those who like tight pants and want to whip their thighs and buttocks back in shape. Here is how it’s done:
1. Stand straight with your feet slightly wider than hips.
2. Bend your knees and lower your hips as low as possible.
3. Fold your hands and place them at the heart level.
4. Press your elbows to the insides of the knees firmly to help your thighs.
5. Move your weight to the heel, draw the crown of your head to the ceiling and hold for five deep breaths.
2. Camel Pose
This exercise is great for your spine, making it very flexible. This pose also benefits your shoulders. This is how you do it:
1. Place your lower legs on the floor at hip width, parallel to each other.
2. Lean backwards, arch your back, so your head is between the shoulder blades, and place your hands on your heels.
3. Continue to bend to work the abs and hips.
4. Remain in the position for 5 breaths.
3. Downward Dog Pose
This exercise is performed in the following sequence:
1. Begin Downword Dog pose on your hands and knees, with the hands positioned just below the shoulders and the knees under the hips.
2. Inhale while tucking your toes under the heels.
3. Exhale while rising so that your body looks like an inverted V.
4. Side Fierce Pose
A very effective exercise for the thighs, especially their inner part:
1. Stand on the front part of the mat with your legs joined together.
2. Bend your knees to sit down in this position.
3. Turn your body so that the weight is on the heels, palms clasped together, right elbow over the left knee with you looking over the left shoulder.
4. Retain the position for five breaths.
5. Warrior 3 Pose
Balancing on one leg is a very effective exercise. But if you are not fully focused while doing it, you are unlikely to succeed. The sequence of performing it is as follows:
1. Stand straight, keep your feet together.
2. Inhale deeply, standing in a T position.
3. Exhale and then bend, stretching your arms in front of you, and moving the right leg back so that the hands, body and legs form a flat parallel to the floor.
4. Suck in your belly and then hold the position for five breaths.
5. Do the same with the right foot on the floor with 5 repetitions for each side.
