Yes abs are made in the kitchen, but they can also be “defined” in your yoga practice!

Here are my favorite yoga poses that create rockstar abs and get you stretched and feeling great in the process.

#1 Boat Pose: This pose strengthens abs, quadriceps, back muscles, and hip flexors. You can  modify the pose by bending the knees or you can hover above the ground, be parallel to the mat, or extend into full boat

#2 High/Low Plank -This pose engages your core and activates front and side abdominal muscles.

#3 One Arm Balance – This pose tests your balance and strengthens your obliques, shoulders, and glutes all in one!

#4 Warrior 3 – With this great balance pose your core has to stay engaged the whole time in order for you stay balanced and stable.

#5 Triangle – My personal favorite pose. This is great for stretching your legs, muscles around the knee, hips, groin, hamstrings, shoulders, spine, and obliques.

Triangle also helps with function in the abdominal organs (aiding in digestion), and relives stress.
