This helps your spine, legs, hands and neck stretch and your abdominal organs also get a massage. Sit straight with feet spread in front, then inhale and raise your arms at shoulder level. Slowly exhale while you twist your body from waist towards your right moving head and hands together to the same side. Swing arms back as much as possible. Inhale and come back to the original position.

This helps with thigh and pelvic muscles. Stand straight with your feet apart, and keep them parallel to each other. Inhale and lift your heels and arms at shoulder level. While exhaling, slowly sit in a squat pose, on your toes. Then inhale and get up slowly and exhale while keeping your hands and heels down.

This pose helps with flexibility of waist and the fat in the waist region, also remains under control. You can use the wall while performing the asana. Stand straight and raise your hand while keeping the elbow straight. Stretch it while inhaling and then bend sideways towards your left. Exhale and come back and put your hand down.

Bhadrasana (Butterfly pose):

This again focuses more on thighs and pelvic region. Sit comfortably on the mat with the legs fully stretched, form butterfly with your feet and sit straight, without leaning forward. Place your hands on knees or thighs. Hold the posture till the time you feel comfortable.

This asana helps with body posture, and relieves backache. Sit on the mat in sukhasana, or Ardha padmasana and sit straight while you inhale. Raise your arms and join your palms in namaste position. Hold the position for a few seconds and come back to normal position again.
