Simply look up these yoga postures, have a look at the pictures, watch the videos, follow the descriptions and enjoy!

Yoga in standing can have so many effects and of course one big one is the strengthening of your legs. You can strengthen every muscle from your feet and your calf muscles up to your thigh muscles. Through this strengthening you can of course also get rid of extra fat on thighs and hips.

Stretching yoga postures in standing can help you release tension, for example during a break at work, and help your muscles to relax. Long sitting lets your muscles get stiff and tensed. They need space and want to get exercise and with the yoga postures you give them all they need!

So get up and enjoy!
