Firm butt, taut arms, strong core—yoga has moves for everything on your fitness wish list. Vogue tells you how to tackle your troubles through this ancient Indian practise.

Navel Nirvana:

The one pose that helps strengthen abdominal muscles and helps you chisel a strong core is the boat pose or navasana.boat-pose

How to: Sit with your knees bent and feet flat on the ground. Lean back and extend your arms (palms up) and straighten your legs—your body should form a V shape. Hold for 5-10 breaths.

Lean Legs:

Build lower-body strength and tighten thighs with the goddess pose.the-goddess-pose

How to: Open up your legs and get into a sumo wide squat. Bend your knees until your thighs are parallel to the ground—knees should be directly over your ankles. Lift your arms up, with your elbows bent at a 90-degree angle. Hold for 5 breaths.

Toned Tush:

The one yoga move that rivals the best butt workout is the bridge pose firming and sculpting your glutes.Bridge-pose

How to: Lie on your back, with your feet hip-width apart and firmly on the ground, keep arms parallel to your body. Inhale as you lift your pelvis up and squeeze your butt muscles, simultaneously pressing your heels and palms on to the floor. Make sure not to over arch your back and keep your belly firm. Hold for a few breaths and exhale as you lower your body onto the mat.

Bye-bye Batwings:

Build upper-body strength and sculpted arms with the dolphin pose.dolphon-pose

How to: Get into the downward dog position. Slowly draw your upper arms inwards and rest your elbows on the floor, interlock your fingers. Unlike a typical downward dog where your palms touch the floor, the dolphin pose works the triceps and the biceps by balancing your body weight on your forearms.
