World Yoga Day - On Track To Good Health

3 Best Yoga Asanas to reduce belly fat 

Yoga is a art full of discipline for both spiritual and physical state. Yoga is a breathing techniques with meditation and exercise. Yoga benefits health and Happiness. Yoga postures are called Asanas. Yoga is originated and beneficial since Ancient India.


After two kids also I have maintained my body very well except the stubborn belly fat which really irritates. So to get the belly in shape I have started yoga. I love three Asanas. I usually practice these Asana ten times each in the morning. These yoga consumes energy by breaking down the fat from the belly area hence reducing belly fat. It has really helped me not just to tone my belly fat but also in many health issues.

Here are my favourite three Asanas to reduce the belly fat:

1. Bhujangasana (Cobra Pose)



How to perform
Lie down on your belly with legs stretched. Place the palms underneath the shoulder. Chin on the floor and toes touching the floor. Then, inhale slowly and raise your chest up bending backwards as much as possible. Body looks like a cobra with the head raised. Hold the cobra pose for 15–30 secs. Then exhale slowly and bring your entire body back to original position and relax for 15 secs. Repeat this for at least 5 times.

Benefits
Cobra pose is a posture to reduce belly pooch and strengthen the abdominal muscles. This pose will strengthen the back, spine and entire upper body. It also makes the spine flexible.


2. Pavanamukthasana (Wind-Relieving Pose)



How to perform
Lie down with the face upwards with arms either side of your body and feet stretched out, heels touching each other. Exhale and bend your knees gradually bring toward your chest, with thighs applying pressure on the abdomen. Hold the knees properly in place by clasping your hands around the thighs. Then inhale and lift your head allowing your chin to touch your knees. Hold the position for 60 secs. Again exhale and release your knees, bring your hands to either side of your body, palms facing the ground and relax for 15 secs. Repeat this for at least 5 times.

Benefits
Wind-Relieving pose tones the muscles of abdomen, thighs and hips. This  pose massages the colon, regulates acid levels in the stomach, cures constipation, improves metabolism and relieves lower back pain.

3. Padahastasana (Standing Forward Bend)



How to perform
Stand with your hands on either side of the body while your feet rest together, with the heels touching each other. Inhale and lift your hand upwards. Exhale and bend forward such that your body is parallel to the floor. Touch the floor, with palms straight on the floor, and without bending your knees. Hold your breath, tuck your tummy in, and hold the position for 60 secs. Exhale, leave your toes, lift your body to normal position and relax for 15secs. Repeat this for at least 5 times.

Benefits
Standing forward bend completely compresses the  abdomen while bending forward, which leads to burning of fat hence tones the tummy. Improves digestion, Strengthens the wrist joints. Relieves mental and physical exhaustion.

If you are really irritated of your belly fat then only practice these three asanas. It will definitely give you a toned belly.
