2 Yoga Poses for Slim Hips and Thighs

Yoga is the most effective way you can maintain your shapely figure! Here are two poses for slim hips and thighs: 

* Ananda Balasana (Happy Child Pose)

  • Lie down on your back and take a deep breath.
  • Breathing out, fold your knees so that they press against your stomach.
  • Breathing in, hold your feet. People who cannot do this should catch hold of a belt or a scarf. Open your knees so that they are wider than the torso and push them towards the armpits.
  • Bring your ankle in line with the knees so that the shins are perpendicular to the floor.
  • Push your feet into your hands to develop a resistance.
  • Hold on to this position for 30-60 seconds.
  • Bring your thighs back towards your belly.
  • Breathe out and stretch out your legs.

 

* Warrior Pose I (Virabhadrasana I)

Steps

  • Stand straight in a Mountain Pose (tadasana).
  • While exhaling, step or jump (slightly) your feet. The distance should not be more than 3.5 or 4 feet between the two feet.
  • Lift your arms perpendicular to the floor and parallel to each other.
  • Turn your left foot 45-60 degrees to the right and the right toes should point forward i.e. 90 degrees. Your knee should be in line with the ankle.
  • Breathe out and move your torso to the right.
