10 Yoga Postures for Weight Loss

By Parul Dube

Yoga may be intended as a way to calm the mind, but it also is a great way to get in shape and drop some weight. 


Holding a plank may be one of the best ways to strengthen your core. It may not look like much, but drop into plank and it won’t take long to feel it in your abs.

Virabhadrasana B

Like a powerful warrior, you too can tone the muscles in your thighs and shoulders with Warrior II.

Virabhadrasana C

For a more toned butt, Warrior III is the way to go. In addition to toning your back end, it’s also a great way to strengthen your back, legs and arms.


Trikonasana may not make your muscles shake like some other postures, but do it often and your abs will thank you!

Adho Mukha Svanasana

To get the most muscle-toning benefits, engage your thigh muscles as you rotate them inward, and do the same with your upper arms.


From improving digestion to therapy for the thyroid and even increasing strength, shoulder stand does it all.

Setu Bandha Sarvangasana

The action of reaching your chest toward your chin gently massages the thyroid gland to produce this all important metabolism-regulating hormone.

Parivrtta Utkatasana

The twisting also helps the digestive system and the lymph system. Combine all these into one move and you’ve got a great way to lose weight.


Looking for a way to burn belly fat fast? Bow pose can help. You can get deeper into the pose by pulling your hands and feet in opposite directions until only your abdomen and pelvis are touching the floor.

Surya Namaskara

Sun Salutations build internal heat while at the same time stretching and toning most of the major muscles.
