Everyone wants a butt that is toned and shapely. But that really doesn’t happen siting on that chair. You have to get up and do exercises. Yoga really helps in this reference because it not only tones up the butt area, but helps you get a desired butt shape too. You can combine yoga with light cardio to lose weight. But with yoga, the butts are stretched and worked out to get an awesomely toned outlook.
These Are Yoga Poses To Tone Your Buttocks
This really works on the butts and gets you toned up really well. Celebrities swear by this posture too and both men and women can do the same. For this posture, pretend that you are about to sit on a chair, but there is no chair. So you are kind of in a holding-sitting position. Extend hands forward and make sure that your knees don’t cross the toes. Now lift the heels gently and hold this pose for at least 30 seconds. Do 5-7 times.
Reverse Boat Pose
This one is like a superman pose. You have to lie down on your stomach and then extend both the hands forward. As you are doing so, also raise both the legs up. Doing so works on the butt muscles and gets them toned and rounded. You can also do this with alternate legs and hands to create a more rigorous work out. Hold the posture for 30-40 seconds and then repeat.
If you really want to get that intense workout for your butt, this is the pose for you. Stand straight and then gently hold your right leg thumb with your right hand.

Hold the posture for 30-40 seconds and then repeat.
The bridge pose can be done in yoga or even regular exercise form. For doing this pose, you have to lie down on the floor with the feet close to the buttocks. Now you can keep hands behind the head or even near the feet, while holding them with your finger. Raise butts off the floor along with back and upper back. Then go down again. Hold the posture for 30-40 seconds and then repeat.
3 Leg Bent Dog
For this pose you have to first get to the basic mountain pose. Lay down on the leg and then raise the butts off the floor, using your hands and feet.

Now repeat the same with the upper leg.
Dog Pose With Leg Stretch
This is another yoga pose that helps you tone the butt. For this get down on all fours. Palms on the floor and knees on the ground, back straight. Now lift your right leg and extend it backwards.

The half moon pose is very similar to the lunge, but a notch more difficult. For this, get into the basic lunge pose. Now extend both hands upwards and get into the namaskar shape. Now tilt the head and back and give a good stretch. You can feel the butt muscles really work and get burning.
This is an easy to look but tough to do pose. For this, stand straight and spread your legs side ways. Now get into an elongated stretch pose. Bend knees as you get down. Back should be straight. Raise hands sideways and then bend from the elbow. Point fingers towards the ceiling. Hold the posture for 30-40 seconds and then repeat.
Lie down on the back with legs in front of you and the hands next to the butts. Now raise both legs and slowly bring them close towards your head. You can use your hands for support initially.
