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.
