How To Get A Better Butt With Yoga


How to Get a Better Butt With Yoga
Who says that yoga is meant only for creating a perfect balance between our body and mind? It can help you a lot in sculpting and molding your assets and turn you into a true ‘hot bod’. No, I’m not going to talk about how you can carve your upper body into a perfect shape. Rather, let us talk about ‘yoga butt’ today. Yoga asanas are really effective in strengthening and toning up our gluteal muscles, which eventually gives firmer, higher and rightly-proportioned butt. It is nothing but your own body weight that makes your lower body look fab with yoga!

Sounds interesting?

Check out the yoga poses to tighten buttocks, below:

1. Downward-Facing Dog Pose (Adho Mukha Svanasana)

This is a part of the well-known Sun Salutation sequence and is the perfect butt lift workout. It is known to be one of the most effective yoga poses for firming up the booty.

  • Place yourself on the floor with your hands a little ahead of your shoulders and your knees right below your hips.
  • Spread your palms out and keep them parallel to each other. Your toes should be turned under.
  • Now, breathe out gradually and raise your knees off the floor.
  • Take a deep breath and pull your tailbone out from the rear of your pelvis and squeeze it into the pubis.
  • Also, raise your sitting bones up and pull your inner legs into the groins.
  • Breathe out once again, while pushing the upper parts of your thighs back and spreading your heels on the ground. Keep your knees straight yet unlocked at the same time.
  • Narrow down the anterior section of the pelvis by making the outer thighs firmer and moving the upper thighs a little inward.
  • Plant the bases of your index fingers on the floor, tighten up your outer arms and raise the remaining section of your hands up slowly.
  • Push your shoulder blades towards your tailbone and widen them gradually. Make sure that your head is lying in between your upper arms instead of hanging in the air.
  • Hold the pose for 2-3 minutes and then return to the starting position.

Downward-Facing Dog Pose

2. Three-Legged Down Dog Pose (Tri Pada Adho Mukha Svanasana)

It is a simple variation of the previous yoga pose, which can be practiced to achieve the similar results.

  • Start in the downward-facing dog pose.
  • Raise up your left leg in the air, slowly but steadily, and bring it in line with your spine. Your shoulders must be parallel with the ground this time.
  • Hold the position for 5 respective breaths and then relax.

You can also appear taller and firmer by using yoga, particularly with this asana.

3. Warrior 1 Pose (Virabhadrasana 1)

In this basic yoga asana, we need to work mainly on our glutes, which helps in toning our butt perfectly.

  • Start in the downward-facing dog position.
  • Take a step forward with your right foot and push the left foot back at an angle, while pressing it slightly against the floor.
  • Lift your arms up together so that they frame your face. Also, point them towards the ceiling.
  • Hold the position for 5 consecutive deep breaths and then swap the side.

4. Warrior 2 Pose (Virabhadrasana 2)

This is a more effective version of the previous pose, which not only gives a firmer and perkier booty, but also strengthens the entire core.


  • To start with, follow the first two steps of the warrior 1 pose.
  • Open your arms slowly to make an angle of 180-degrees between them (stretch your right arm toward the front part of your body and left arm toward the back).
  • Also, widen your chest and hips as you open your arms.
  • Bend your right knee a little forward to align it with the ankle.
  • Take 5 deep breaths and change the side.
