Butt-Firming Yoga Poses You've Gotta Try Now
You can totally bend your way to a better butt
How to Strike It: Begin in Downward-Facing Dog. Raise your right leg up behind you and swing the leg, stepping forward to the midpoint of your hands. Allow your right knee to open out to the right, angling your knee at two o'clock. Your left leg should be extended behind you, internally rotated so that your hips are squared and your knee is facing the floor. Hold for 30 seconds.
Butt Benefits: Don't clench your booty for this pose, as that will prevent you from getting a deep stretch. Instead, focus on relaxing your muscles and deepening the stretch with each breath. If you can't square your hips to the mat, Ingber suggests reclining and crossing ankle over opposite knee with foot flexed, which is easier on the knees.
