If you’re looking for inspiration to roll out the yoga mat and train, a look at Malaika Arora’s Instagram account will suffice. The 48-year-old often shares inspirational yoga videos and also explains the benefits of various asanas she practices. She recently shared an Instagram reel where she practiced a series of asanas that would help you get rid of that stubborn belly fat.
Let’s take a look at the asanas recommended by Malaika Arora that will help you continue your weight loss journey:
Naukasana or the Boat Pose
As the name suggests, it is a posture in which our body takes the shape of a boat. This asana is good for those who want to reduce belly fat and strengthen the abs. Naukasana can be performed lying on the stomach or on the back. The asana will engage your core muscles, so if you are a beginner, it may take some effort to perfect this asana. But persistence is key.
Kumbhakasan or the Plank Pose
This asana is a fixture in dynamic asana sequences. It is known to strengthen the upper body, arm muscles, wrists and spine area. Plank Pose is also great for strengthening the core and strengthening the abdominal area. This asana is similar to a push-up. During this asana, your upper back is fully stretched, increasing the oxygenation of the muscle tissue and releasing the tension between the shoulder blades.
Bhujangasana or Cobra pose
In this yoga pose, one raises their body and then rests the weight on their palms, with the legs stretched back. This is a heart-opening back bend that stretches your entire upper body and can also provide relief if you are experiencing back pain, tightness in your shoulders, or upper body pain.
