First of all, not all yoga classes will be able to boast the ability to shrink bellies and tighten abs. The class must incorporate three very important things. First, you have to be able to work up a sweat, burn calories through cardiovascular work. If your heart rate doesn’t increase while practicing yoga, you won’t benefit from a lean middle. Second, corestrengthening exercises that work all of the abdominal muscles must be included. In order to really flatten your tummy, you must work all sections of your core, not just the superficial muscles in the center that are targeted by doing set after set of sit-ups and crunches. A lot of people never get the results they want not because they can’t, but simply because they are doing the wrong type of exercises. Lastly, the class must also strengthen the back. If the back is weak, the core won’t be able to strengthen and flatten – the front of the body needs the back of the body in order to see results.

One of the awesome aspects of yoga is that, when done correctly, nearly every pose works to strengthen and tone the core. For example, balancing poses make the core work to keep your center of gravity. Forward folds are great for toning the stomach so long as the navel is sucked in towards the spine and then up under the ribcage – this is so often overlooked, but is one of the best ways to flatten your tummy! Backbends help to lengthen the abdominal muscles, giving you a look that is long and lean. On top of all of that, there are some amazing poses in yoga that do an excellent job in strengthening the core and in ways that target crucial muscles that are often neglected in regular “ab-workout” routines.
