The Best Yoga Poses for Flat Abs

Tree Pose

This pose will have your abdominals working overtime to help you stay grounded on one leg. First, shift your weight onto your left leg. Then, draw your right knee into your chest, grab your ankle, and press the bottom of your right foot onto your left thigh. Also, brace your abdominals in tight to your spine. And find a focal point and focus your gaze while you hold the pose for 10 long, deep breaths. Lastly, repeat on the other leg.

 

Warrior Lunge Twist

Not only will your abdominals help you stabilize in this posture. But the twisting motion engages those hard-to-tone obliques.

First, bring your hands into prayer pose. Lunge forward with your left leg and bend your knee about 90 degrees. Brace your abs in tight to your spine and rotate your upper body to the left. Keep your spine long as you lean over your left leg and press your right elbow into the outside of your left leg. Turn your head to look up toward the ceiling over your left shoulder. And hold for 10 deep breaths and then untwist and return to standing. Lastly, repeat on the other side.

Rock ‘n Roll Lotus

Sit with your legs crossed at the ankles. Hold onto the outside of each ankle with your opposite hand, and lift your legs off the floor, balancing on your sitting bones. Then, pull your abs into your spine and take a deep breath in. As you exhale, begin to round onto your back. Continue rolling until your shoulder blades touch the floor, lifting your hips, still holding onto your ankles. Keeping your abs in tight, rock back up to sitting. And repeat 10 times.

 

Camel Hinge

Kneel on the floor with your knees hip-width apart. Extend your arms out straight in front of your chest, palms facing down. Lift your chest and press your pelvis forward as you hinge backwards, arching slightly through your lower back. Then, focus on opening up your chest while also keeping your ribcage down and your belly button drawn into your spine. Slowly return to the starting position. And repeat up to 10 times.
