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
