Yoga Poses To Fight Stubborn Cellulite

Utkatasana (Chair pose)

-Stand with feet together, big toes touching, and ankles slightly apart. Bend at the knees, sitting hips back (as if into a chair) and lifting your chest up to the sky.

-At the same time, reach your arms up by your ears and lengthen through the fingertips, keeping shoulders relaxed and ab muscles held in.

-Sit back as far as you can; aim to make up to a 90-degree angle with your legs (a shallower angle is fine—go as far as is comfortable) while keeping your back from rounding and knees from going past your toes.

-Hold for 5–8 breaths before standing up; repeat 3 more times.

Eagle Pose

-Bend your knees slightly and cross your right leg over your left leg high at the thigh, then try to double cross it behind the left calf or ankle.

-Wrap your right arm under your left and back over top; press your palms together.

-Squeeze thighs tight and pull your belly to your spine while you sink lower, bending slightly at the knee and a bit forward at the waist. Hold for 5 breaths, then repeat with arms and legs reversed.

-If double-crossing your legs is too challenging, cross just once at the thigh and rest your top foot’s toes on the ground for balance. If your shoulders are too tight to double-cross your arms, wrap under only and press the backs of your hands together.

Cellulite is the worst =/ I tried all kinds of creams, wraps, and coffee rubs and nothing was effective. I was really beginning to think only Photoshop could beat cellulite. Anyone ready to really beat cellulite, I suggest this: http://www.illatte.com/joey-atlas-truth-about-cellulite/ since I started using this I’ve actually seen a serious reduction in cellulite and I don’t have to depend on a product for it.
