Top 13 Yoga Asanas for Quick Weight Loss

4.Side Plank (Vasisthasana)

 

It’s no wonder that some form of the “plank” made this list of yoga asanas for weight loss.  The plank and all of its variations are great for the abs!

Begin in regular plank position with your palms face down on the yoga mat,shoulder-width apart, and your toes together on the mat.

Tilt your feet to the left so that the outer right side of your right foot is touching the mat and the left foot is on top of the right (as pictured above).

Shift your weight onto your right hand as you remove your left hand from the ground.  Slowly lift your left arm straight up ahead of you towards the ceiling.

Your hips and shoulders should be “stacked” in this pose, meaning that they should directly in line with each other and not leaning forward or backward.

Hold for 30 seconds, and repeat on the other side.
