13 Yoga Poses For The Girl Who's Trying To Lose Weight

Aside from the fact that yoga helps you lead a healthy and mindful lifestyle, it also aids you in losing weight, depending on the areas you focus on. For instance, your arms require certain types of stretches and poses, while your shoulders, upper back and midriff would require a different set of stretches.


If you’ve been considering yoga, losing weight, or both, you’re on the right page!


These are the yoga poses, or asanas that are best suited for those of you who are hoping to lose some weight.


1. The Downward Dog


The Adho Mukha Svanasana helps tone your arms and biceps while working on your strength and stamina. It requires you to bear the weight of your upper body on your arms, with your legs stretched out straight. See that your knees aren’t bent and your stomach is sucked in.

2. The Low Plank


Or, the Chaturanga Dandasana, is one of the more popular yoga poses that is a principle pose included in regular exercises, as well. It works on your core while toning your arms, biceps, and triceps. For those of you hoping to lose some belly fat, the plank is a good way to tone down your tummy and work on your abs.

3. The Dolphin Pose


Also known as the Ardh Pinch Mayurasana, this pose becomes fairly easy to do once you’ve mastered the downward dog pose. It works on your entire upper body. The weight-bearing pose tones your arms, biceps, and triceps as well as works on the calves, inner thigh muscles, as well as your glutes.

4. The Upward Facing Dog


The Urdhva Mukha Svanasana is a fairly easy pose. It works on stretching and lengthening your entire body, from head to toe and is known to be one of the most efficient poses when it comes to toning your arms, biceps, and triceps. It’s just as good for losing the unwanted belly fat.

5. The Seated Twist Pose


What most people don’t know about the Bharadvajasana is that aside from working on correcting your spinal alignment and posture, this pose is also extremely effective when it comes to toning your shoulders and upper back. Plus, regular practice can lead to a set of rather impressive shoulder blades you’d like to flaunt while wearing a backless next time.

6. The Boat Pose


Quite aptly called the Naukasana, the pose requires you to balance your body entirely on your midriff while being in the position of a boat. This actually happens to be one of the best poses to practice if you’ve been wanting to reduce belly fat and get fit and toned midriff. Remember to keep your core balanced. Regular practice can even get you those abs; without those crunches!

7. The Fish Pose


Matsyasana stretches your entire lower body - your thighs, intestines, hips, as well as the abdominal muscles. Because it involves pulling and stretching your body, you burn a lot of the extra fat that gets accumulated in the more prominent parts of the body.

8. Vishnu’s Couch Pose


Better known as the Anantasana, this pose tones and firms the abdominal muscles in your body. Because of the stretching on both sides of your body, the pose helps burn the fat around your belly, while also working on your inner thighs, calves as well as glutes.

9. The Cobbler Pose


If you’ve been wanting to tone your thighs, the Baddha Konasana works on both your inner and outer thighs. Sit upright, with your back straight. Your legs should be folded inside and flat on the ground. Your feet should be held together.

10. The Garland Pose


Or the Malasana works on your hips, thighs, glutes, and calves. It stretches your lower body out in a way that helps relieve all the accumulated fat in your body after sitting for too long in the day. It’s perfect for those of us with desk jobs and no outlet to losing the unhealthy fat.

12. The Pyramid Pose


Don’t go by it’s rather complicated name, Parsvottanasana; the pyramid pose is actually fairly simple to do; especially if you’ve already successfully mastered the downward dog and dolphin. The pose involves deep stretching and works on your quads, calf muscles as well as hamstrings. It’s one of the easier ways to tone your lower body muscles and strengthen your legs.
