Best yoga poses for fighting cellulite

The war against cellulite... every single woman has been there. Thankfully, yoga comes to the rescue!

Cellulite is way too frustrating for many women, no matter the size. Cellulite is, basically, adipose tissue that looks lumpy because it's pushing against the connective tissue, so the skin above naturally crumples.

There are no magical solutions to fix it, but there are definitely a lot of things that can help. First of all, drinking a lot of water and eating healthy food. And second, yoga.

Practicing yoga has many benefits, but when it comes to cellulite, there are three killer poses that, together with your diet, water, and cardio workout, will help you notice a huge improvement. Try these poses at least three times a week.

Eagle pose

Eagle pose is great for your thighs and your focus!

Start by bending your knees then crossing your right thigh high above your left thigh. Wrap your left arm under your right arm and then press the palms together. Sit even deeper and squeeze your thighs as you gaze down the tip of your nose. Hold for 5 to 8 breaths, then repeat on the other side. 

Incline plank

Incline plank is good for your legs, core, and hips.

Start seated with your legs out in front of you and bring your hands about 10 inches behind you with your fingers facing forward. Press firmly into your hands and feet and lift your hips up into an inverted plank. Hold here for 5 to 8 breaths then lower down and repeat one more time.

Shoulder stand

Shoulder stand is quite easy and it has many benefits!

Start lying down on your back. Use your lower abdominals to lift your hips up overhead into plow pose. Clasp your hands under your back and hike your shoulders up toward your ears to come off the back of your neck. Bend your elbows and place your hands on your lower back. Lift your legs up to the ceiling and engage your thighs actively to lengthen up out of your lower back. Keep pressing firmly into the elbows. Hold for 8 to 10 breaths and come down.
