7. Ushtrasana: (Camel Pose)

This is normally done to counter the Naukasana pose. The backward stretch that you experience as you touch your ankles in this pose helps in toning the abdominal muscles. The tension experienced by your belly muscles during Naukasana will now be released, and at the same time, you will also enjoy a good stretch.

How To Do:

  • Sit in Vajrasana.
  • Slowly, lift your body from your knees such that you are now sitting with your whole body weight supported by your knees.
  • Your heels should make a perpendicular line with the ground.
  • Exhale deeply, and arch your back. Bring your hands behind your body, and try to hold your ankles, one by one.
  • Tilt your head behind and stretch backwards, until you experience a stretch in your belly.
  • Hold the posture for 20 to 30 seconds to begin with, working your way to 60 seconds, breathing normally.
  • Exhale and slowly relax.
  • Come back to Vajrasana.
  • Repeat this asana five times to begin with, working up to 30 times gradually.
  • Relax for 15 seconds after each repetition.

8. Marjariasana: (Cat Pose)

The forceful contraction experienced in the abdominal muscles while holding the posture helps in melting the fat, and thus, reduces the belly size. This pose is also beneficial in enhancing the flexibility of the spine.

How To Do:

  • Sit in Vajrasana.
  • Breathing normally, rise from the position, and allow your body to come parallel to the floor such that your body rests on your knees and palms.
  • While the knees should be placed beneath your hips, the palms must go under your shoulders facing the floor. Keep the head straight. Space out the knees slightly so that your weight is spread out evenly.
  • Inhaling deeply, lift your head while pushing your back down, so that your body has a concave structure.
  • Expand the abdominal region as much as possible to suck in the maximum amount of air.
  • Holding your breath, maintain the posture for about 15 to 30 seconds.
  • Exhale deeply and lower the head, while arching your back upwards. Keep your buttocks and abdomen firm until you experience the contraction. Your head should be between your hands.
  • Breathing deeply, hold the pose for about 15 to 30 seconds, working up to 60 to 90 seconds gradually.
  • Exhale and slowly come back to Vajrasana. Relax for 15 seconds.
  • Repeat this asana 10 times to begin with, working up to 30 times gradually.
  • Relax for 15 seconds after each repetition. This is also one of the best yoga asanas to reduce belly fat.
