3 moves for yoga abs


Woo hoo! You can soo get those ultra-flat yogini abs without om-ing your way through an hour and a half class. We snagged yoga’s best gut busters. Start off with a few simple postures (check out our faves here) and then work on whittling your middle.
 
Touch-downs
Start on your back with your hands clasped behind your head. Bend your knees and lift your feet up, so your legs are bent at a 90-degree angle. Slowly straighten your right leg and touch your toe to the floor. Make sure to move slowly. Then slowly return to start. Repeat on the opposite side. Keep alternating, for 12 reps on each side.
 
Three part crunches
Start on your back with your hands clasped behind your head. Raise your legs up in the air, so your body forms a 90 degree angle. Lift your shoulders off the floor and then lift your butt off the floor. Hold that lifted position for two breaths. Lower back down to start. Repeat 10 times.
 
Knee to forehead 
Start in a downward-facing dog. Lift your right leg up to the sky. Bend your knee and bring it toward your forehead, while shifting your body into a plank position. Return to the downward dog with your leg in the air. Keep slowly repeating for 30 seconds to one minute. And then switch sides.
