If you want to get strong and flat stomach you need to combine different exercises, one way is to do yoga ab workout. To tell the truth, I’m rather new with yoga, but since I like trying out new things, I have dug myself into this topic. I have to say yoga is more than just a method to relax, it is excellent for improving flexibility and balance, to get rid of back pain, strengthen muscles.
The well-known abdominal exercises can help you to build strong and attractive core, but they reduce the flexibility of your midsection. (However, with stretching you can avoid it.) By performing yoga ab exercises, you can keep the flexibility of your midsection and at the same time strengthen and tone your entire stomach.
It is true that with yoga, you will not be able to build six pack abs, but these types of movements are healthy for your spine and for keeping the proper posture. I have just read an article that because of doing so many crunches, many people suffer from spine and lower back problems.
In addition, most of the yoga poses requires good balancing, which is especially beneficial to work the core. Besides, they help to strengthen not only abdominal muscles, but others such as hips, arms, shoulders, chest and legs as most of them are bodyweight activities.
Finally, they encourage to reduce stress, belly fat and no equipment is required.
Overall, yoga is excellent to flatten and strengthen abs. You can do just yoga core workouts or you can integrate them into your routines.
Below I have collected some of the best routines I have discovered. It is essential to perform the movements correctly and to focus on your breath.
