I don’t know about yours, but my inner thighs could definitely use some toning. Believe it our not, yoga is a way to get rid of the inner thigh fluffiness that many women have. Check out three amazing ways to start toning that area.

The Goddess Pose

Directions: Stand at the front of your yoga mat and step out, opening your legs about three feet apart. Bend your knees into a squat position, with your knees directly over your ankles. Lift your arms, bending your elbows at 90 degree angles with your palms facing away from you. Hold this pose for five deep breaths.

The Half-Wheel Pose
