Top 13 Yoga Asanas for Quick Weight Loss

8.Warrior I (Virabhadrasana I)

 

Warrior I is often performed as a “vinyasa” with Warrior II and Warrior III (below).  This simply means that they are performed as a “flow,” in which you go from one pose to another fluidly.

The warrior routine is an important part of the yoga asanas for weight loss and should not be ignored.

Warrior I is similar to a high lunge, but the back foot is pointed out at an angle rather than tucked under.

Try to keep the front knee at a 90-degree angle, but for many beginners, your stance may look like the photo above (slightly higher than 90 degrees).

Try to hold it for 30 seconds, and transition into Warrior II (below). Note: You will want to repeat all 3 of these poses as a vinyasa on the other side of the body after you are finished with the first side.
