Flat Stomach from Ashtanga Yoga
Exercise to Develop a Flat Belly
Ashtanga Yoga is a very effective way to develop a flat stomach. Because ashtanga yoga burns calories, it helps to create a calorie deficit which forces the body to burn fat-tissue - including belly fat.
Ashtanga Yoga Burns Belly Fat
About 10 minutes of ashtanga yoga burns about 80 calories. In one year, this daily fitness workout burns a total of 29,200 calories per year - about 8.3 pounds of body fat. A significant proportion of this fat tissue is likely to be stomach fat. In addition, many exercise routines improve ab muscle tone in the waistline area (the "six-pack" effect) to give the appearance of a flat stomach/belly.
Stomach Fat is Bad for Health
A daily ashtanga yoga workout helps you to develop a flat stomach and improves your health. This is because abdominal fat is linked to higher risk of serious disease.
Ashtanga Yoga, Flat Belly and Eating
