Los Angeles, CA -- (ReleaseWire) -- 06/20/2014 -- A June 16, 2014 report entitled “3 Yoga Poses for Fighting Cellulite” posted on the website of Health Magazine offers three yoga poses that can tighten, lengthen, and tone the muscles resulting in smoother looking skin. According to the report, diet and exercise are effective ways for fighting the appearance of cellulite. Cellulite is fat that pushes against the connective tissue beneath the skin creating a lumpy appearance. (see goo.gl/K9ly08)

“I’ve seen reports indicating that nearly 90 percent of women admit to being affected by cellulite,´ says Dr. Simon Ourian, Medical Director of Epione Beverly Hills. “Cellulite is most commonly found on the thighs and buttocks and is the result of a variety of causes including hormones, genetics, and aging. “

The Health Magazine report states that practicing the following three yoga poses can lead to an improvement in the appearance of cellulite on the thighs, buttocks, and hips. The eagle pose helps tighten the inner and outer thighs. The incline plank is good for toning the backs of the thighs. Finally, the shoulder stand, an inverted pose, is said to aid the lymphatic system by stimulating fatty areas to break up and flushing toxins out of the body.

“To my knowledge, cellulite can’t be cured with exercise and its appearance may actually become more obvious when one loses weight,” says Dr. Ourian. “In our clinic we offer free consultations to anyone interested in learning about a variety of cellulite treatments or discussing any of their other aesthetic needs and goals.”
