You may often ignore our back only because you cannot see it. The annoying folds start to appear because you deprive the back muscles of physical activity. These asanas recommended by yoga expert Sunaina Rekhi will cut down the tyres and improve the muscle tone.
Shalabhasana or the locust pose: The locust pose stretches the hamstrings, at the same time tones your back. This asana boosts metabolism, helping you burn stubborn fat at a faster pace.
Padangustha dhanurasana or the big toe bow pose: If you are too comfortable with the basic yoga postures and want to try something new and more challenging, then try this one. Padungushtha dhanurasana is an excellent yoga asana to lose weight from your back, hips and thighs.
Ardha chandrasana or half moon pose: This is an excellent pose to work both your upper body and core. It also strengthens your arms and wrist while improving your balance.
Setubandhasana or bridge pose: This asana can be a killer pose for your upper back, and as a bonus, it also tones your abs. It also strengthens your legs, back and arms.
Vasistahasana or side plank targets your love handles, arms, back and abs. Try to hold the side plank for five breaths and then repeat it on the other side.
Bhujangasana or cobra pose: The cobra pose is very effective in burning fat from your back along with toning your arms, legs and abdominal area. It also works the sides of your torso while toning the muscles of your back and hips.
