Are you fond of junk food? Do you lead an erroneous lifestyle, indulging on the junkies and avoiding exercise? No wonder you have developed a flabby tummy. Some people also develop a fat belly due to high stress levels. But, wider abdomen does not only lessen your physical appeal but poses serious health risks as well. So, you need to have a proper diet combined with a fitness regime.
Yoga is the best form of physical workout that helps to reduce the abdominal fat, controlling both your mind and body. It also has a long term effect.
Some of the yoga Asanas that can help you reduce the belly fat are as follows:
Sun Salutation (Surya Namaskar):
This asana is actually a confluence of 12 yoga postures, each of which creates a major impact on the abdominal region, along with other areas of the body. The deep breathing during the asana helps in detoxification as well. The bending and stretching help the whole body muscle function and tone. You can start with five rounds, gradually increasing the rounds over time. After each repetition, you can sip a little amount of water. You should relax for 15 seconds before each repetition.
Forward Bend (Padahastasana):
Keeping the spine erect and inhaling deeply, you need to lift the hands upwards. Then while exhaling you should bend forward to bring the body parallel to the floor, and then bring down the upper portion of the body so that the palms touch the ground. Then you should try to touch the ankles with the hands. Keeping in this position, you should tuck your tummy in and hold the breath for sixty to ninety seconds. Then slowly exhaling, you need to release the hands and bring your body to the original position. This asana completely compress the abdomen and burns fat.
