2 Simple Yoga Poses for a Slimmer Figure and a Curvier Booty

Women can perform exercises at home without the need for supervision from personal trainers.


To improve your waist and buttocks, abdominal exercises are the first thing women think of. However, this is a heavy and exhausting exercise, while squats can make your thighs bigger if not done properly.

Yoga exercises directly affect your waist and buttocks, tighten your abdominal muscles, improve firmness, and fill in the hollow areas on both sides of your buttocks. There are simple yoga exercises that you can do at home to improve your figure. Just focus on targeting your waist and buttocks to quickly achieve the desired results.

Exercise 1: Hip Shake

– Stand with your feet shoulder-width apart and fix them on the floor.

– Interlace your hands behind your back and try to stretch them apart to create an opening for your shoulders.

– Keep your hands fixed and shake your hips gently from side to side in sync with your breath.

Women should pay attention to swinging their hips wide in both directions, while keeping their feet firmly on the floor.

– Perform 2 minutes per set, and do about 4 sets per day.

This exercise directly targets your abdomen and waistline, tightening your waist and helping to improve your overall body shape. Combine it with steady breathing and contracting your abdomen to deeply target your waist muscles.

Exercise 2: Squat Variation

This exercise is a variation of the squat that targets multiple muscle groups and helps tone the entire body. You don’t need any equipment or a trainer, as you can do this exercise at home on your own.

– Stand with your feet wider than shoulder-width apart, and your toes can point outward or be parallel when performing the exercise.

– Lower your center of gravity so that your knees are at a right angle and do not go beyond your toes.

– Raise your hands up high, extending them horizontally and smoothly following the movement of your body.

– Pay attention to breathing evenly and contract your abdomen.

– Perform 100 repetitions per day, and you can break them into morning, noon, afternoon, and evening sessions.

This exercise is a variation of the squat that combines full-body movements to improve and tone your waist. With the addition of arm movements, it also targets your arms and shoulders, giving you a slim figure from top to bottom.

Especially, when performing this exercise, remember to contract your abdomen and breathe evenly. Use your abdominal muscles to maintain balance, which significantly improves your waist. With consistent training, you can even achieve firm and toned abs without going to a fitness center.
