Weight loss through yoga asanas

If you want to remove extra belly or weight from your body then yoga asanas plays an important role in this process. Here, we give you some yoga asanas, which will help you to remove weight from your body.

1. Ardha sarvangasana:

Lie on the ground on your back and use your hands to lift your legs up into air. Put the body weight on your shoulder and upper back. Make sure that your elbows and lower arms rest on the ground. Hold this posture for 5-8 minutes and breathe deeply. Slowly lower your legs under controlled motion and keep them straight.

It is very useful asana to remove weight, increase blood circulation and enhance memory and concentration.

2. Uttanasana:

Stand straight and put your legs together. Start inhaling and raise your hands until it reaches over your head. Exhale, bring your arms forward and bend your hips to touch the floor. Place your hands behind your legs and join them together, and remain in the position for 8 breaths. Bring your hands in the front and twisting your torso upwards. Keep your head down until you are completely straight. Perform this exercise 4-5 times.

Uttanasana not only removes extra weight but also provides flexibility of various body parts and rejuvenate the spinal nerves.
