    Dr. Hansaji Jayadeva Yogendra – Director, The Yoga Institute says, Yoga has the power to transform not only your life but also your thighs! All you need is the right knowledge about each Yoga Asanas and how it impacts your body. Even though Yoga is a holistic science and works on your complete body, it is essential to have the right knowledge about it.

    The legs, especially the thighs require some kind of special attention. The legs carry your weight around all day, every day. We need to incorporate a few specific sans for the legs to ensure that they remain strong and flexible.

    Try these 5 Yoga Asanas for heavy thighs as suggested by Dr. Hansaji Jayadeva Yogendra – Director, The Yoga Institute:

    Virabhadrasana II

    An extremely crucial asana for strengthening the thigh muscles. Since the pose gives a strong stance, it helps to tone the legs as well. For this asana, stand with your legs 3 feet apart and with the right foot pointing outward. Bend the right knee so that the thigh is parallel to the floor, hands by the side of the body. Stay in this position for a few breaths and release the pose. Repeat on the other side as well.

    This is also known as the chair pose. In this, you sit on an imaginary chair. Just this much is also enough to strengthen not only the thighs but also make use of the hips and calves as well. For Utkatasana, stand with your legs together and hands in front of the body, parallel to the floor. Breathing out, squat down, almost as if you are sitting on a chair. Breath normally and then release the asana.

    Сегодня у меня день отдыха от стоек и потому просто растяжка в моей личной практике йоги. Вариант бадхаконасана с выходом на пол. Раньше мне казалось это невозможно, мы на занятии отодвигали ноги вперед и немного наклонялись с круглой спиной, так нас учили этому. Я понимаю почему так, достаточно сложная асана и наклониться к ногам прижатым к полу в бабочке и мне виделось нереальным. Все прошло и эта асана поддается мне легко - я включаю ее в ежедневную свою практику. Практикуй и все придет! Вот и весь секрет йоги. #йога #йогадлявсех #зож #стройнаяфигура #красотаиздоровье #утренняяйога #yoga #йогажизнь #йогаевпатория #ятренерстудии906090 #тренерзайцевасвет #евпатория #yogaover55 #йоганапляже #йоганаморе #йоганарассвете #йогапротивстарости #йогапротиввозраста #бадхаконасана #badhakonasana

    A simple asana to open up the hip joints and keep the legs flexible. It stretches the knees, calves, and inner thigh muscles. Badha Konasana is supposed to be done in the sitting position. Sit with the legs stretched out, then bring both the soles together and closer to the body. Grab the feet with the hands and gently try to push the knees downward. Let this stretch open up the legs, breathe normally, then gently release the pose.

    Uthita Hasta Padangustasana

    Stand with the legs together and hands by the side of the body. Gently bend the right leg and with the right hand try to grab the big toe. Then slowly extend the leg sideways to get a full stretch. This asana gives an intense stretch to the whole leg, right from the toes, calves, hamstrings, to the thighs. It also increases the blood circulation in the legs, opens up the hip joint, and also improves the flexibility of the pelvic area.

    Stand with your legs hip-width apart, and palms together. Breathing out, squat down, almost as if you are sitting on your calves. After a few rounds of normal breathing, release the pose. This is an excellent asana to strengthen and then eventually tone the tights.
