If weight gain wasn’t a big deal already, accumulating it on prominent regions like thighs, hips and waist does it for us. These are areas that are easiest to compile fat and toughest parts of the body to tone. When it comes to getting rid of excess weight from areas around your thighs, yoga is your best bet.
Yoga is an effective tool against weight loss, which also increases your strength, flexibility and balance. Some yoga poses can be implemented to tone the leg muscles, especially the major muscle of the thighs, known as quadriceps. Here are a few asanas that will help you tone an strengthen the legs and slim down the thighs.
Benefits- Natrajasana reduces fat from thighs, shapes your calf muscles, and strengthen the ankles.
Benefits- Janusirsasana helps remove stiffness from the spine along with stretching the calves, hips, thighs, and ankles. It removes unwanted flab from all these body areas.
Benefits- Ardhakapotasana helps stretch the outer portion of your thighs and brings them to shape. It also stretches the abdomen, thereby reducing flab from there.
Benefits- Suptavirasana stretches your thighs and strengthens your knee joints and back muscles.

Repeat these yoga asanas three to five times daily. You must make sure that your breathing should be slow and rhythmic while doing these asanas for best results. Also, after completing your session, lie down in corpse pose to cool down your body.
