Simply sweating for hours in the gym does not guarantee weight loss. To shed extra pounds, consume a balanced diet and include yoga practice in your daily routine. Let’s explore which yoga poses can help in reducing body fat.

Virabhadrasana for weight loss

•    To perform Virabhadrasana, also known as Warrior Pose, stand straight. Then, bring your hands together. 
•    Next, bend one knee while extending the other leg straight back. 
•    Maintain the position with your hands joined, holding the posture for a while. 
•    Virabhadrasana improves body strength and balance when practiced regularly. 

Utkatasana for weight loss

•    Utkatasana is another great yoga pose for shedding some pounds. 
•    To practice this pose, stand on your yoga mat. 
•    Inhale deeply and raise your arms overhead. 
•    Lower your body as if sitting in an imaginary chair, maintaining balance. 
•    Hold the Utkatasana pose for a few seconds. 
•    Return to standing position. Repeat Utkatasana for 5 to 10 minutes. 
•    Regular practice of this asana improves metabolism.

Naukasana for weight loss

•    To practice Naukasana, sit on a yoga mat. Straighten your legs and extend your arms forward. 
•    Lift your legs and torso together, creating a boat-like shape. 
•    Reach towards your feet with your hands and hold them. Remain in this posture for a few seconds. 
•    Practicing Naukasana daily helps in reducing weight over time.
