Want to get a waist like Kim Kardashian? Want to have that hourglass figure that makes heads turn?

There's no better way to do it than with yoga! Yoga has many health benefits. It can help you build core and leg strength, become more flexible, reduce stress and improve your focus. Yoga is also a great way to get into shape while making your body feel great inside and out.

Yoga is not just about flexibility or strength—it's also about body awareness and mindfulness. It's a tool for developing self-awareness and changing your relationship with food, which can be a major factor in achieving the slim waistline you've always wanted.

But as much as we all love Kim Kardashian, let's face it: She wasn't born with her famous curves. She had to work for them—and so do you.

Here are 5 yoga poses that can help you get a waist like Kim Kardashian:

 Warrior 1

This pose builds strength in the lower body while flexing the hip muscles. The result will be a stronger core, svelte waist, toned glutes and more defined legs.

Downward facing dog

This classic yoga pose is a great total body stretch that stimulates blood flow through the abdominal region, which helps to reduce bloating and water retention that cause a flabby waistline.

Upward bow/Wheel

This is an advanced yoga pose that's fantastic for stimulating blood flow through the stomach region and strengthening your core muscles as well as your arms, shoulders and back.

Plank Pose

This is an amazing exercise for strengthening the core and creating that coveted "V" shape. Lie face down on the ground with your arms extended and your palms flat on the floor. Lift up into a push-up position, keeping your body straight from head to heels. Hold this pose for 30 seconds at a time before lowering yourself back down again. Make sure that your back is straight and not sagging or arching up towards the ceiling (this defeats the purpose!).

Cobra Pose

This pose works wonders for strengthening your lower back muscles, which are key in getting that perfect hourglass shape around your waistline! Lie face down on the floor with legs extended behind you and toes pointed towards each other (as if they were touching). Slowly lift up one vertebra at a time until your hands are under shoulders and upper chest is off of floor (you should look like an upside-down "V"). Hold this position for 10 seconds before lowering.

Try and do these every day, holding for 10-20 seconds and repeating 3-5 times each time you practice.
