Gain Muscles with Yoga

In addition to minimizing health risks, yoga helps you gain strong muscles.

Here are poses that contribute to muscle growth:

  • Chaturanga Pose – This is an excellent alternative to pushups that strengthens your shoulders, biceps, and chest.
  • Chair Pose – Strengthen your quads, hamstrings, and calves with this common yoga pose that’s harder than it looks.
  • Boat Pose – Build up that six pack with this pose that works your abs and also strengthens your hip flexors.
  • Crow Pose – This upper body and core strengthening pose can be tricky at first, so place a pillow under your head to protect yourself as you gain confidence.
  • Warrior Poses – A flow of Warriors 1, 2, and 3 will strengthen your upper and lower body while challenging your balance.
