Let me start out by saying that if you practice yoga, you have a yoga butt.

But I know that some of us would like to tone and firm our backsides, and yoga is a great way to go do just that.

Break out your mat and get ready to start shaping your behind with these 4 yoga poses:

 

1. Bridge

  • Lay on the floor on your back.
  • Extend your arms alongside your body, and bring your heels close to our fingertips.
  • Contract your glutes, lifting your hips into the air.
  • Hold the contraction for 5 seconds, then slowly lower back to the floor.
  • Do 3 sets of 20 reps.

2. Locust

  • From Warrior 1 with your right leg forward, shift your weight onto your right foot, lifting your left leg. As you lift your left leg, contract your left glute.
  • Arms can go directly ahead of you or directly behind you. However, you may use a wall to assist you if necessary.
  • Hold the contraction for 2-5 seconds, then slowly lower back down to Warrior 1 position.
  • Do 3 sets of 15 reps per leg.
