Most people think of Yoga as something that helps calm the mind, but there is more to it than you think. If done with dedication and discipline, yoga can help you lose weight and stay in shape. While it is true that in comparison to high intensity workouts, yoga burns lesser calories but some of the yoga flows, when done at a moderate to high speed, can make you sweat like no other workout.

Yoga poses are also made of helpful breathing exercises which work to correct your metabolism, regulate blood flow and rejuvenate functioning.
Along with weight loss, yoga also helps to relieve stress, which is one of the main causes of weight gain. When practiced regularly, it leaves you feeling relaxed, fresh and focused. Yoga brings your mind, body and breath in harmony, thereby eliminating stress from your life.
Here are 10 easy yoga asanas that you can do anywhere anytime and lose weight: These yoga poses can be excellent for anyone looking to get back in shape. From fat loss, building endurance, making you more flexible, regular yoga sessions will do your body a whole lot of good.
To perform this pose, stand straight with your feet wide apart and hands straight parallel to the ground. Now bend on your left side and try to touch your left foot with your left hand. Stay in this position for 10-20 seconds and repeat with the other side.
The twisting motion of the asana helps to improve the digestion and reduces the fat deposit from the belly. The pose engages the muscles of your legs and arms and helps you build more muscles.

Virabhadrasana, also known as a variation of the Warrior pose is a yoga asana which can not just help you lose weight but also flatten abs since it concentrates on the core body muscles.
Doing all three variations of the Warrior pose can help you lose weight, burn belly fat and tone muscles in an effective manner. This is also a great way to keep your muscles engaged for a long time.
Virabhadrasana II is slightly different from the first pose. This variation is extremely helpful for strengthening core muscles in your abdominal and stomach area, helping you achieve a more defined and shapely look. It is also great for boosting body balance and vitality, since it gives a nice stretch to the legs, shoulders as well as ankles.
How to do it
Start by doing Virabhadrasana I. From here, slowly extend your leg so that it looks more straightened. Ensuring that the knee does not bend, place the heel of the behind leg on the ground. Balancing your body, staying in this position, try and twist the upper half so that you face sideways. Hands should be raised on either side. Stay in this position for at least 5 breaths and then repeat on the other side. With every deep breath, your focus starts to improve and blood flow in the respiratory tract increases. Make sure that the bodyweight is distributed evenly on all sides. Your palms should also be facing downward, and not upward.
To perform this pose, lie flat on your stomach with hands extended forward and palms facing down. Now keep your hands right below your shoulders, lift your upper body and look up. Your lower abdomen and thighs should be flat on the floor.
Stand straight with your feet joined together and hands by your side. Now raise your arms above your head such that your palms face each other and now bend slowly from your knees, exactly like you’d do in a squat position. Your thighs should be parallel to the ground. Stay in the position for 10-15 seconds.
As the name suggests, your body looks like a boat when in this position. To perform the asana, lie flat on the ground with your hands by your side. Now slowly lift your upper body and legs, such that your body forms a V shape. Keep your hands straight, parallel to the ground. Stay in the position for 10-20 seconds.
Stand straight with your feet hip-width apart and your hands by the side. Now raise your hands above your head and join them together. Bend from your torso towards your left with your hands joined together. Repeat on the other side.
To perform this asana, lie flat on the stomach. Now slowly start lifting your upper body, just like you do in cobra pose and simultaneously also lift both your legs. Now hold your legs with your hands and stay in the position for as long as comfortable.
Start by lying on your back, with knees bent and feet flat. With your heels firmly placed on the mat, lift your tailbone up such that your hips and lower back are off the mat. Place your hands under your hips and lace the fingers together. Use your glute muscles, hamstrings and abdomen to hold your bottom and back up. Release your fingers and slowly lower your tailbone back down. Relax and repeat.
This pose is comparatively easy to perform and you can do it between other challenging asanas. Start by sitting on the floor in Vajrasana. Now lower your head down on the mat by resting your belly on the top of your thighs. If you are a beginner, your head might not touch the mat, but that’s okay. Stretch your hands forward, with your palms touching the front of the mat, right in front of your head. Hold the position for 10-20 seconds and relax.
Lie flat on your stomach. Now slowly lift your body from the mat by using the pressure of your hands. Your body should form a straight line from head to heels. Your wrist should be on the mat and your shoulders should be right above your wrist. The position will look similar to a push-up position. Hold the position for a few seconds by keeping your abdominals engaged and then slowly relax.
Lie flat on your back with your arms on the sides and palms facing down. Focus on relaxing your body by inhaling through your nose and exhaling through your mouth. Perform the asana in the end after performing all the asanas.
