The model-like sleek neck looks sexier and pleasing to the eyes. Everything from necklaces to off-shoulder dresses fits great on someone who has a defined collarbone. Yoga not only builds a robust immune system and flexibility but improves your figure and posture too. Having a visible or prominent collarbone is deemed to be one of the most desirable body features. Well, if that’s something you’re looking forward to, there are certain yoga poses that can help you burn neck fat and get that toned chest, shoulders, and collarbone.
Health Shots got in touch with Shilpa Gowder, Yoga Coach, Fittr, who rolled out some easy but effective yoga poses that accentuate the collarbone.
These yoga poses will give you a defined collarbone and toned neck:
