7. Adhomukha Svanasana (Downward Facing Dog Pose)

 This asana is in a way a complete body exercise. Also referred to as the  Downward Facing Dog Pose, practicing Adhomukha Svanasana tones down the fat on the arms as well as legs. It straightens the spine and due to the posture, the blood flows in the opposite direction which helps the brain to function better.

8. Virabhadrasana (Warrior Pose)

 The energy booster for the body, Virabhadrasana or Warrior Pose is an incarnation of Lord Shiva and works wonderfully to strengthen the arms and shoulders. Not neglecting the legs and ankles, Virabhadrasana also improves balance and gives the body a better stability.
