Hot Yoga Poses For Rapid Weight Loss

These Hot Yoga Poses Will Burn Off That Extra Weight!

There’s nothing like breaking a sweat to drop those annoying extra pounds. When we sweat, we are releasing toxins from the body. This also means that our body is working in some shape or form which translates into weight loss. One of the best ways to break a sweat with yoga is by doing Bikram yoga. Bikram, or hot yoga as it’s referred to, is yoga that is typically performed in high temperatures, thus causing you to sweat. The following Bikram poses are designed to help you effectively lose those extra pounds while you are sweating up a storm!

See the poses below and be sure to share these with those people in your life looking for a way to shed some quick pounds!

This asana is also known as Utkatasana. Stand on the floor in Tadasana position. Raise your arms in a perpendicular line with the floor. Join your hands in prayer position. Take a deep breath. Inhale and exhale properly. Now bend your knees a little. Try to bring your knees in a parallel line with the floor. Do not give any kind of strain to your legs. Do not bend it beyond your capacity.
