5 Yoga poses to help burn belly fat effectively

1. Bhujangasana 

This pose mainly works to strengthen the abdominal muscles and relax the lower back.


  • Lie on the floor, face down.
  • Place your hands on the floor, next to your shoulders.
  • Stretch your legs back, the tops of your feet touching the floor, slowly inhale and lift your upper body.
  • Make sure your pubic and toes form a straight line and touch the floor.
  • Hold this pose for 25-30 seconds.
  • Release and return to lying position as you exhale.

2. Dhanurasana 

While it seems easy, this pose can be quite challenging for your abs, which is exactly what will help tone your abs.


  • Lie face down on the floor.
  • Bend your knees and hold your feet with your hands.
  • Inhale and lift both arms and legs, raising the thighs and chest at the same time.
  • Hold this pose for up to 30 seconds, gradually increasing to 90 seconds.
  • Release as you exhale.

3. Kumbhakasana 

Undoubtedly the most loved and famous pose, the plank pose is one of the best poses to burn belly fat and tone your muscles.


  • Lie face down.
  • Lift your body above your straight arm
  • Balance on your toes
  • Towards forward or downward
  • Hold for as long as possible, rest and then repeat a few more times. Try to stretch your time in this pose every day.

4. Naukasana 

This is another pose that works great for your lateral and front abs, and also strengthens your core.


  • Lie on the ground, facing the ceiling.
  • Keep your hands at your side and relax your shoulders. Keep your legs straight.
  • Now, slowly raise your arms and legs off the ground, keeping your stomach in and above the ground.
  • Approach a 45-degree angle until your body is in a V shape. Hold it for 60 seconds and practice deep breathing.

5. Ustrasana 

This is a slightly more difficult pose. So make sure to only do this if you don’t suffer from any back problems.


  • Kneel on the floor with your knees hip-width apart, thighs straight and perpendicular to the floor.
  • Place your hands on the top of your buttocks, fingers pointing down and back slightly inward.
  • Slowly lean back and touch and hold the heel with your hand. Keep your spine straight but don’t strain your neck.
  • Hold this position for up to one minute.
