Many people suffer from stubborn belly fat. This exposes us to serious health risks such as heart disease, diabetes, obesity, and hypertension, among others. Moreover, it makes us feel lazy all day.

So, an effective solution to this abdominal fat problem is, as we all know, yoga. It has several health benefits. Along with increasing strength and flexibility, yoga also helps burn belly fat. However, it does not give you an instant result, but it benefits your health in the long run.

Treat belly fat problems? Here are five yoga poses that will help you shed those extra pounds:

Kapalbhati– Sit in a comfortable pose and straighten your back. Keep your palms on your knees facing up. Inhale naturally and focus on exhaling with rapid, rhythmic and forceful breathing.

Padahastasana – Stand straight in Tadasana pose, hands on either side of the body as your feet rest together, heels touching. Take a deep breath and raise your hand up. As you exhale, bend down to the floor without bending your knees.

Dhanurasana – Here, your body mimics the shape of an arc. As you lie on your stomach, breathe deeply. Now lift your upper and lower body from both ends while balancing on your abdomen. Now use the legs as a grip to stretch your hands as you create balance.

Pavanamuktasana – Lie down and keep your face up. Put your arms along your body and stretch your feet as your heel touches. Bend your knees and breathe. Now gradually bring the bent knees towards your chest, with the thighs applying pressure to the abdomen. Now hold the position for 60-90 seconds.

Bhujangasana – Lie on your stomach and rest your arms. While lifting your shoulders, keep the waist high. Stay in this posture for about 30 seconds.
