Check Out 8 Yoga Videos That Strengthen Your Butt — and You Can Do Them All at Home

Yoga can work your abs big time. It can also strengthen and tone your glutes (aka butt muscles), and it's a great option when you're not feeling the gym or your regular scheduled programming of weekly at-home lower-body workouts. Certified yoga instructor Caley Joyner told POPSUGAR via email that you can take up power yoga for your glutes, but functional practice that's not as fast-paced can strengthen your booty as well.

In fact, according to Joyner, one way to feel the burn in your booty is to slow down and target that specific area. Poses that accomplish this are 90/90 sits which work the gluteus medius and minimus, or your side butt muscles. Joyner explained, "things like lunges with back knee dips; Warrior 3, flexing and extending the standing knee; and Yogi Squats work the glute max." Note: the gluteus maximus is the biggest of the butt muscles.

Ahead, check out yoga videos from yoga instructors like Joyner, Adriene Mishler, and more that target your booty. You'll simply need an open space, a yoga mat, and your positive attitude. Personally, I find these useful when I'm not in the mood to pick up the weights and I want to change it up.
