If losing fat around your thighs is your goal, then try badhakonasana or the butterfly pose. This video shows you steps of the butterfly pose, which is one of the most effective asanas to stretch and strengthen your thighs. Apart from toning your thighs, it simultaneously strengthens your spine, the muscles of your back, lower back and knees. Perform this asana as many times as you can for quick results. While you do the asana, remember, the closer your legs are to your pelvis, the greater the benefit of this pose. Do not push yourself, do as much as you can and your flexibility will improve with time. Also, make sure you avoid doing this asana if you have a knee or back injury. Here is another yoga pose that will help tone your butt and thighs.
