Yoga: Perfect For Flat Abs?

  • 07 Sep 2020

Do you know that yoga requires a lot of core strength?

Yoga can help you to get fabulous abs and the best part about it is that you don’t have to do a single sit-up or crunch!

It’s also great because it can be done anytime, anywhere. All you need is your body, a comfortable surface and perhaps a yoga mat.

Astro Ulagam found 5 Yoga Poses For Flat Abs just for you! Hold each pose for 30-60 seconds before moving on to the next pose.

1) Plank

Your arms should be shoulder-width apart and directly below your shoulders. Focus on tightening the core muscles and hold for 30 seconds. Work towards holding this position for up to 2 minutes.


2) Boat Pose

Sit firmly on the mat with your legs out in front of you and your hands just slightly behind your hips. Slowly raise your legs up to a 45-degree angle and raise your arms to the outside of the knees. Hold for 30 seconds. Work towards holding this position for a full minute.


3) Warrior Pose

Begin with your feet placed firmly on the mat and your arms reaching towards the sky. Slowly lean forward, keeping your arms raised and raising one leg at the same time. Draw strength from the core, not the legs.


4) Superman Pose

Lie face down on the mat with your arms out in front of you. Slowly lift your arms and legs up at the time, as high as you can. Focus on using your core to hold the position rather than your arms and legs.


5) Revolved Chair Pose

Begin in chair pose, which is a slightly seated position with your legs together, your back slightly leaning forward and your arms reaching straight outward in line with your head. Slowly reach your right arm down to the outside of the left foot, and reach your left arm straight upward. Hold for 30 seconds. Repeat and hold for 30 seconds on the other side.
