You do not need to do crunches to get flat abs – there are many yoga poses for flat abs you can do at home.

Practicing yoga regularly will lengthen and strengthen your entire body.

That means you will get sleek and toned muscles, not bulky ones that some women are afraid of obtaining sometimes.

I don’t do any crunches, yet I have a flat stomach just from doing various yoga poses.

That said, you need to be very patient with yourself if you can’t do all of these poses quite yet.

Work at a speed that’s right for you, keep trying, don’t give up, and you will have a chiseled, flat stomach soon enough!

I will note that eating healthy and doing some form of cardio will help you see your abs better, so working on those things as well is a good goal.

Either way, these yoga poses for flat abs will be very beneficial to you.

1. Boat Pose

Boat Pose

This is my favorite of the yoga poses for flat abs.2

You can do so many different variations of the pose, such as moving your legs up and down and pausing at certain heights.

To perform this pose, go onto the ground and sit with your knees bent.

Lean back, tucking your tailbone under your spine, contract your abs, and extend your legs out.

Put your hands out in front of you, palms facing in.

The goal of this pose is to get your feet as low to the ground as possible without actually touching it.2

Alternatively, it can be to grasp your ankles and bring your legs as close to your body as you can, keeping your back straight.

Hold as long as you can, and keep building up.

2. Downward Facing Dog with Knee to Nose

Downward Facing Dog with Knee to Nose

One of the most popular yoga poses, downward facing dog, is a great yoga pose for your abs.

That is, if you do this variation.

It is good for the lower abs, because (if you do it right) you will be squeezing your lower belly tight.

Go to downward facing dog position by getting on your hands and knees, pressing your hips up, extending your heels to the floor (if possible), and palms on ground.

Next, alternate lifting one leg and bringing it as close as you can to your forehead or nose.

Keep repeating with alternating legs until your lower abs burn and you can’t handle it anymore.

Make sure you keep breathing deeply through any tension you might have.2
