Yoga for better boobs

Leave a comment

lifting those pecs in chaturanga

Hear it from a classic boob-hater; I’ve wanted to nip, tuck and lift my girls as much as the next person but have recently started owning the stretch marks and sagginess as part of acting “French.” (Their no-bra study says it all). No longer am I battling push-up bras and looking at implant Before and Afters online, but rather I’m free-flying as much as possible and doing a few exercises to boost my chest-area confidence.

Because breasts are made up of fat and other tissue, to “tone” them, you need to focus on the pectoral muscles on which they rest. Here are my top chest-strengthening yoga poses:

1. Chaturanga 

This low push-up position allows maximum strengthening of the pecs. 

2. Bakasana 

Your chest muscles play a key role in Crow while keeping your head from toppling forward. 

3. Bhujangasana 

After strengthening a particular muscle group, ensure those torn muscle fibers reshape correctly by giving them a good stretch. Cobra opens up the chest in a gentle way.

Before going under the knife, which not only has risk of complication but also requires lifetime maintenance, perhaps try some of these to naturally lift everyone’s favorite body part.
