Three Yoga Poses To Build Core Muscles

By 7 January 2017


Below are some yoga poses which will help you develop the core strength you desire:

1. Standing 

A very effective kind of standing pose is the tree pose. Although it seems simple, it engages all the core muscles and helps maintain balance.

Standing yoga postures require both strength and flexibility, and categorize most of the advanced asanas. Standing poses are generally held for shorter times than other poses, and tend to be more energetically uplifting and opening.

2. Hovering cat

This is also very effective for strengthening the core muscles. Get down on your hands and knees—as a starting position—and extend your legs out behind, so that your toes are together and touching the floor. Then, proceed by lowering your arms so that you are resting on your forearms with your elbows bent directly under your shoulder, with your body extended and remain in this position for as long as you can. Do it repeatedly for effective results.

3. Knee to Arm Plank

Come forward to Dolphin Plank; bring the right knee to the outer upper right arm, hugging the knee toward your midline. Pause. Lift the front body toward the back body, as you press back through your left heel. Hug the arms toward one another, keeping them straight and strong, as you reach through your crown. Take 5 deep breaths. Maintain integrity in your torso as you slowly return to Three-Legged Down Dog.
