I’ve uploaded a half hour session to my YouTube channel “Yogamatique” that targets some of the tightest areas in the body such as the hamstrings, the calves, the hip flexors, the adductors, the quads, the quadratus lumborum, the shoulders and more.

Even though specific poses were chosen to target a certain area, we are also gaining benefits in other areas of the body as well. That’s one of the beauties of yoga – we are able to get a well rounded exercise as we achieve our specific goals. And of course done mindfully, yoga will leave you a little more grounded than when you started.

Here are the 10 main poses and the targeted areas

Padangusthasana – Hamstrings

Adho Mukha Svanasana – Calves

Anjaneyasana – Hip Flexors

Virabhadrasana 2 – Adductors

Parsvakonasana – Quadratus Lumborum

Utthita Hasta Padangusthasana – Hamstrings and Hips

Natarajasana – Quadriceps

Prasarita Padottansana – Legs and Shoulders

Parsvottanasana – Hamstrings and Shoulders

Humble Warrior – Hips and Shoulders
