Hello and thank you for your question.
High lean protein, fiber and low carbohydrates and refined sugars reduction will help you remove belly fat. I recommend Insanity work out system with Shaun T to really melt away belly fat. You should do core exercises. Many people want to lose weight in their stomach but sit ups etc, won't lose it for you by itself. To be honest unless you use liposuctioning surgery, it is not possible to just lose fat on your stomach, you have to work out more and do weight loss exercises and cardio. The fat leaves your stomach typically last with exercise.

Best regards

Dr. Ward

1. yoga does help in getting rid of fat around the abdomen only when you PRACTICE it regularly.
2. one of the best known yogic posture to reduce fat around abdomen is :Udharav Mukha Shvan asan (upward facing Dog) which helps in streatching of the muscles of mid section and lengthening of stomach.
3. other Yogic postures to reduce fatty tissue are: Simhasana,Ushtra asana, Garuda asana, and Pawanmuktasana:these postures help improve digestion and reduce stagnation of food and other toxins in the body and thus have a reducing effect on the body which we call as "Langhana" in Ayurveda.
4. make sure you do a warm up exercise prior to performing these postures .
5. also follow a proper diet along with Yoga for better results, if you are a beginner make sure you perform yoga postures carefully or under the supervision of yoga teacher or instructor.

First of all,the basic cause for tummy enlargement (?)should be rectified first.Being as a female patient,what about your menses?What about your mental health?Any wrong food habit though you are taking home made food?
If all answers are in negative form then surely yoga (asanas)will help you.Surya namaskar is ok.Do also tadasana,pawanmuktasana,bhujangasana,shalbhasana,kukuutasana,sarvanga-asana,pranayama etc along with suryanamaskara.Take warm water at least before going to bed at night for basti vishodhna according to ayurveda.If you have any query,let me know.

Welcome to Healthcare Magic
How is your diet. You probably are having relatively more diet for your activity. You need to avoid fried food, junk food, oily food, fatty food, colas. Eat more fresh fruits and green leafy vegetables. Drink plenty of water. Do daily brisk walking for 40 minutes. Get 6-8 hours of sleep a day. Get your thyroid hormones checked and if periods irregular then you may have hormonal disturbance. Consult your Doctor in such cases.
