2. Mountain Pose Yoga
As the name suggests, Mountain Pose is believed and found to be effective in increasing confidence; Mountain Pose is the very first pose in the Sun Salutation series and aids the other poses too. Stand with your hands at your side, raise your hands slowly reaching the ceiling, now slightly bend backward while keeping the posture, lower your arms to the sides and repeat for five to six times in smooth fluid motion. Mountain Pose initiates blood circulation in the body and prepares it for more complex moves and bends. Moreover, it is helpful in toning lower abdomen, which is one of the chief problems for both men and women, as the little ‘pooch’ seems to take forever to disappear.
