Yoga For Fat Burning And Weight Loss In 20 Minutes From Experts

Yoga is a dynamic form of exercise that can be used to achieve a number of purpose including strength, flexibility and weight loss. Yoga in the past was one of the exercises that were usually recommended for relaxation but in recent times, it has been further explored and expanded to achieve another purpose as mentioned earlier.

The use of medication to achieve weight loss often comes with a costly price in the form of side effects. Also, not all exercises are efficient in burning body fats and others will burn the fats so rapidly such that the skin loses its firmness and begins to sag or wrinkle. Yoga, on the other hand, achieves weight loss with minimal or no side effect.

There are a number of yoga poses that you can do for only 30 seconds as directed by experts which will lead to tremendous weight loss. Most yoga poses works on your endurance and as such will make you sweat. Some of them are listed below.

Human plank: the human plank can be done in two ways and each of the two ways will achieve the same result.

  • In the first pose, you place your palms on the mat – or whatever surface you desire but the surface should be an even one – raise your shoulder and your knees so that only your palms and toes are touching the ground. Align your butt to be the same level with your body. Hold this pose for 30 seconds for a start and target to hold it longer, up to 1 or 2 minutes.
  • The second pose is almost similar to the first just that this time your elbow and the whole of your lower arm will be touching the ground such that your body will form a straight line to the surface you are leaning. This is sometimes called four-limbed staff pose.

Human arc: this pose is often nicknamed the superman pose. Lie face flat on your tummy. Gently raise your head, shoulders and arms upwards. Do the same for your legs such that only your torso down to your hips is touching the floor. Hold this pose for 30 seconds but work to hold it longer – at least 1 minute.

Reverse human plank: in the reverse human plank, you lie face up. Place your palm on the mat and raise your body till it is in almost a straight line with the flat of your feet lying straight on the ground. Maintain the pose for at least 30 seconds.

Human wheel pose: this is an advanced yoga pose that will challenge your flexibility. Like the plank, there are two ways this can be achieved;

  • In the first, lie face up with your knee raised. Bend your elbow and place your palm on the ground. Gradually push yourself up till your tummy curves upward. Maintain this for 30 seconds.
  • You can also start by standing then gradually bend backward till you place your palm on the mat then raise your torso.

For a start, try to maintain each pose for 30 seconds but as time goes on, try to increase the time you hold each pose.
