10 simple yoga poses to reduce stubborn belly fat

10 yoga exercises to help you burn belly fat

Belly fat is not only bad for your health, but it can also be very dangerous and put your health at risk. Carrying around the extra weight of belly fat tends to make you feel sluggish and lethargic.

Belly fat also puts us at risk for diseases such as diabetes, heart disease, hypertension, and obesity.

Some of the reasons for abdominal fat can include genetics, specific diseases or even obesity, unhealthy eating habits, irregular sleeping patterns, lack of exercise, etc.

As an effective way to lose pounds, yoga gives us the equivalent of cardiovascular exercise to get our heart rate up and this helps burn those calories.
