5 burns on a flat stomach

The press works not only during strength training. Yoga is no worse than the physical exercises listed for this purpose, it is simply done more gently and with less risk of injury.

1. The location of the fish (matsyasana)

This elegant pose opens and stretches the chest and abdomen, strengthening the lower abdomen and hip flexion (one of the weaknesses of women). When exercising, take five deep breaths in this position.

The video shows an easier version of the pose. Try to lift your straight leg off the ground (it’s okay if it’s shaking).

2. Boat Seat Location (Ardha Navasana)

This balance works even the deepest muscles. As a result of this exercise, you will gain certain abdominal muscles and increase the stability of the spine. Hold this position five deep breaths (inhale, exhale) and then return to the starting position.

The video shows a standard version of the pose.

3. The position of the dog facing down (adho mukha svanasana)

If you think that the abdominal muscles work the least in this position, you are mistaken. During this exercise, you should pull your genitals to your back and breathe through your chest, not your stomach. These include the torso muscles, which act as a kind of internal corset. Hold this position five deep breaths (inhale, exhale) and then return to the starting position.

4. Holding hands (adho mukha vrikshasana)

This pose requires not only a strong sense of balance, but also very strong torso muscles, especially if you want to perform it in a more complex version.

This video shows all the changes from the simplest (feet against the wall) to the advanced options (from the top to the bottom).

5. Lotus position (padmasana)

In the lotus position, the stomach is in good shape, the navel touches the back, and breathing passes through the chest. Hold this position five deep breaths (inhale, exhale) and then return to the starting position.

If you can’t sit in the lotus position, choose the semi-lotus option. The video below shows the exercises to prepare for the Padmasana exercise.
