Yoga AsanasAsana number 1


Nirlamba Supta Pawan Muktasana


It is a hip-trimmer variation of a classic pose.



  • Lie on your back. Inhale.
  • Exhaling, fold legs at knee, hugging them.
  • Release hands, but keep folded knees up. You may place palms flat on the ground, alongside the body.
  • Gently liftoff hips, so it is a few inches off the floor. Hold for as long as you can. Do thrice.
  • Later include this in between every set of other exercises, to intensify its hip-trimming and thigh-slimming effects.


Asana number 2


Utkatasana (Chair Squat)


Another variation of a classic pose, modified to use wall support so you can hold it for longer, to accrue benefits from it like leg- toning. Holding it longer accentuates its effect as a complete body workout.



  • Stand up straight against the wall.
  • Inhale, raising hands overhead clasping them together in a namaste gesture.
  • Exhaling, slowly lower yourself in a squat, sliding against the wall. On the first few attempts; do not squat too low, especially if you have a weak back. Go only as low as you can.
  • Stop and press your back against the wall. Legs will be bent at knees.
  • Soles will be flat on ground. Breathe and hold for as long as you can.
  • Relax to starting position. Repeat thrice. It is a complete body-toner, especially wearing out fat in trouble spots like back of the thighs, inside of thighs, inner legs, sides of waist and inner arms.
