Minimizing Cellulite With Yoga

Yoga seems to offer innumerable health benefits along with a cellulite-busting routine that targets the butt and thighs, the areas most prone to dimpling.

The cottage cheese appearance or dimpling skin caused by excessive fat bulging out of the connective tissues is referred as cellulite . The upper leg is one of the most common areas where cellulite occurs because it is where many women store excess fat. This can be caused by several factors which include unhealthy diet, dehydration and slow metabolism. Appearance of cellulite can be considerably reduced by regular practice of yoga because of its ability to increase lymph circulation. The best yoga asanas to reduce cellulite are inverted poses like the modified shoulder stand and plow pose. For best results, you should do these yoga poses every other day.

More benefits of yoga include improved muscular definition and strength, better skin elasticity, greater flexibility and less stress. All these factors can reduce cellulite.

Sarvangasana (shoulderstand)

Halasana (Plow Pose)

Kapotasana ( Pigeon Pose)

Utkatasana (chair pose)

Trikonasana (lateral bending pose)

Finally, strengthening the skin fibres, plumping the skin’s surfaces and breaking down the stubborn fat and toxins deposits, can help minimize the look of cellulite.
