10 Powerful Yoga Asanas To Get Rid Of Belly Fat
Belly fat is unsightly, unhealthy and next to impossible to get rid of. While no exercise can eliminate fat from one specific area of your body, a combination of healthy eating and regular exercise can successfully reduce the percentage of fat across your entire body.
Yoga asanas can help you tone your stomach by strengthening up the core muscles under your stomach, which both burns excess body fat through muscle growth and firms up the abdominal muscles beneath the fat.
