Ustrasana or camel pose
Kneel on the floor and keep your hips and thighs straight in one line. Place your hands on your buttocks, keep your fingers downward, and lean backward to form an arch. Then hold your heels bending backward, and stay in the position for at least 15 to 20 seconds. Ensure that you don't strain your neck while doing this asana.
Naukasana or boat pose
Lie down on the floor facing the ceiling. Place your hands by your side, relax your shoulders, and keep your legs straight. Lift your hands and legs together, making a 45 degrees angle. Once your body forms a V-shape, hold the position for about 45 to 60 seconds and practice deep breathing throughout. This yoga asana strengthens your belly, thighs, and hips.
Utkatasana or chair pose
This asana can help you tone your hamstrings, glutes, and thighs. Stand with your feet together and arms at your side. Lift your arms over your head and keep them close to your ears. Your fingers should point toward the sky. Get into a partial squat position by slightly bending your knees and moving your hips backward. Hold the position for 30 seconds.
Setu bandha sarvangasana or bridge pose
Begin by lying down on the floor on your back. With your palms facing down, stretch your arms on the sides toward your feet. Press them down to lift your hips up. Tuck your chin and interlace your hands behind your back. As you breathe in lift your hips higher and hold this position for 30 seconds. Slowly exhale, lower your body, and relax.
Salabhasana or locust pose
Lie on your belly with your feet together and your hands stretching backward. Raise your hands, legs, and chest, ensuring that your neck is straight and your chin does not touch the floor. Stay in the yoga asana for 30 seconds and then relax. Doing this pose can help you tone your thighs and help you lose extra fat.
