You might be practicing every day and still needing a little topper to target the tummy. Or you don’t have time for a full class daily but want to tone and tighten the core. Or maybe you suffer from bloating in the belly. Whatever the reason, start adding these 3 poses in to your routine and let me know how you feel.

1. Plank –  This is without a doubt the best pose to practice on a regular basis in order to see improvement in this area. Come to table top with your hands underneath the shoulders, spread your fingers wide. Walk the feet back behind you. Reach your tailbone towards your heels. Instead of pushing the stomach out, think of lifting and toning the naval back. Extend the crown of the head forward, gazing down. Shrug the shoulders down and away from the ears. To modify: drop the knees down to the ground, maintaining the contraction in your tummy.

2. Side Plank – From your previous position, roll the heels over to the right. Push in to the right hand and extend the left arm up. Stacking the shoulders one over the other. Push in to the sides of the feet to lift the hips up higher. To modify: drop the right knee down. Repeat on the other side in either variation.

3. Upward Facing Dog – Keep your hands directly underneath the shoulders. Point the toes back behind you. Drop the hips. Stretch completely through the belly. Open the heart. Only the tops of the feet and the palms are pressing down, as you focus on finding length throughout the body.
