5 Yoga Exercises Every Morning to Lose Weight Fast:
- Cat cow (Bitilasana)
Warms up and stretches the spine. A great morning stretch for your back, this pose opens up the entire spine.
How to do it: Get down on all fours with your back parallel to the floor. Inhale and drop your belly while looking up at the ceiling, arching your back. Exhale while curling your spine and looking in towards your belly, like a cat.
- Downward Dog (Adho Mukha Svanasana)
A full body stretch that stretches out the back, spine, arms and legs. It opens up the back of the body giving a rush of energy.
How to do it: From a neutral pose on your fours, tuck your toes, lift your knees and lift your hips up high. Bring your ears between your arms and look down at your thighs. Stretch your back and arms to put your heels on the floor.
- Seated Forward Fold (Paschimottanasna)
A standing position that signifies strength and power, this asana is great for digestion and simulation of the internal organs
How to do it: Start seated upright with your legs in front of you. From there, crawl your palms down your legs and toward your toes. If you can’t reach your toes, let your palms rest on your shins or bend your knees. Hold this pose for three breaths before walking your palms back to an upright, seated position.
