One has to be patient enough to reap the benefits of a daily yoga session, and results will be gradually revealed anywhere between two to three months of the daily disciplined practice. You will need to determine your own ability and comfort level before performing certain yogasanas. Among the many important yogasanas further reduction of stomach factor are Pavan Muktasan, Bhujangasan, the bow pose, and Paad Pashchimottanasan. These specific yoga exercises are believed to help reduce stomach fat.
