Yoga is considered a slow paced form of exercise and not everyone who wants to tread on HIIT form of exercises would choose yoga as their primary source of losing sweat. But if you believe the experts at Jeevmoksha Yoga Gurukul in Rishikesh, these three exercises will make you sweat as hard as intensity training.
1. Downward Dog (Adho Mukha Svanasana)
It may seem simple at first, but when combined with few changes, it becomes one of the hardest pose you will ever try your hands on.
You have to engage your arms and legs, and push into the mat with your widespread finger tips while nudging your heels to keep them as close to the ground as possible.
2. Boat Pose (Navasana)
Boat pose looks extremely easy to someone who isn’t performing it. To someone who is, he may not be in his easiest form. Shivering legs, crying abs.This pose will test your will to its wit’s end.
3. Handstand (Adho Mukha Vrksasana)
Nope Nope Nope! Not for the faint harted. This pose make a second pass like an eternity, that too if you are able to perform it. But hey! The sweat drops on your yoga mat will definitely make you proud after your practice.
So go ahead and give it the best you got.
