So, today in our weight loss special, we will reveal how halasana aka plow pose works its magic on your belly fat. And to help you understand this pose better, we have none other than Grand Master Akshar in the house. So, let the expert do the talking.
But first let’s ask him if halasana really helps in weight loss
Yippee! He says it does work on burning fat, especially your belly area. “Halasana or plow pose is an inverted asana, which can help in achieving weight loss. When performing this posture, pressure is applied on your stomach and belly region”, he explains.
Further, he says, “This asana massages the digestive organs, and therefore, improves digestion and regulates appetite. Halasana works on the thyroid gland, and improves your metabolism, which makes it a popular choice for those looking to shed extra fat. Regular practice of halasana will streamline your breath, and that’s another tool that aids in weight loss.”
But you’ll only end up burning fat, if you do perform the plow pose correctly. So, read and learn:
Tip: Don’t forget to keep in mind the breathing methodology. Inhale while lifting your legs, and breathe slowly after you assume the final position.
Some dos and don’ts while doing halasana:
1. If you have diarrhea, menstruation, or a neck injury, then please avoid doing this pose.
2. If you are suffering from high blood pressure and asthma, support your legs or back with props, when you practice this asana.
3. And lastly, if you are pregnant, do this asana only if you have been practicing it for a long time. Do not begin practicing during pregnancy.
So now that we have found you a weight loss pal, it’s your turn to take its help and get ready for the new normal.
