7 Super Effective Yoga Poses for Beautiful Breasts
As women, our breasts are a marker of womanhood. For most of us, our boobs are the first sign of the transition between childhood and becoming an adult, often long before our period crashes the party and makes us question if growing up is really for us.
7 Yoga Moves for Firm, Beautiful Boobs
Of course, breasts come in as many different shapes and sizes as women do, and it’s natural for your ‘girlfriends’ to look pretty different over the years. But some women who practice yoga notice that certain poses can make their breasts look firmer than usual.
These seven yoga poses focus on three main areas: Your thoracic spine (the 12 vertebrae in your chest area that connect to your ribs), your core muscles, and of course stretching out your chest. When these areas are strong and open, perfect posture becomes your default and makes your breasts look young again, and they’re also a great way to stay active and healthy!
This is a standing position. Place your feet shoulder-width apart and stand tall. You are going to feel attuned with your body and feel grounded. Keep the shoulders relaxed and the chest lifted. Keep breathing and hold for 3-6 breaths. To release, exhale and lower the hands down to the floor. While you are standing, set new goals for your life and your body.
Triangle pose (or Trikonasana) is all about lengthening. It will release and strengthen your thoracic spine and stretch the rest of your spine in the process. This long spine helps you stand tall and show off your boobs. Bonus: Triangle also improves blood flow if you need a mid-day pick up
Start by getting into a normal push-up position, but with your feet spread slightly wider than shoulder-width apart, and your hands shoulder-width apart. Raise your pelvis into the air, while keeping your arms, legs, and back straight. You should look like an upside-down ‘V’. This is your starting position, and it’s the position you’ll return to after each push-up. When coming down, point your elbows out to the sides while bringing your pelvis down into a normal push-up position. Now shift your weight to your arms and push your shoulders up while keeping your pelvis on the ground. Once your shoulders are all the way up, use your abs and glutes to bring your buttocks back into the air and return to the starting position. The exercise should be done smoothly and without delay between each part.
Lie down on your stomach with your legs stretched out and arms on each side of the body. Bend your knees and grab the ankles (or feet) with your arms and hold the position. Then take a breath and lift your head up and start to bend it backwards while trying to lift your legs as high as you can. Stay in this position for 30 seconds. After that, return to the original position and repeat this exercise 5 more times with a break of 15 seconds between each time.
Camel (or Ustrasana) is another fantastic back-pain reliever. It will stretch out your chest and strengthen your thoracic spine to give your girls a lift.
Lie on your back on the floor, make sure your legs are extended and together and place your hands under your thighs. Pushing own on your elbows, arch your back and inhale. Lean your head back so your forehead touched the floor. Exhale deeply, to come out of the pose, lift your head and place it gently back down, then release the arms.
Supported Headstand (or Salamba Sirsasana) is not for the faint of heart, and certainly not for a first-time yogi. That being said, it is a super-strengthener for the ligaments and muscles in your thorax and spine, and requires tremendous core strength. If you are a beginner, don’t worry – practice the other poses and work your way up to boob-yoga domination.
Practice these yoga poses multiple times a week to improve your posture, achieve firmer, more perky breasts, and fall in love with your boobs all over again.
