Yoga is an excellent compliment to any weight loss program.
Yoga was always thought of as a way to relax and rejuvenate spiritually. It is an age old method of doing this and much, much more. Most of the poses we use for weight loss are simple and yet powerful. It is confusing to some that have a certain definition of what yoga is so we will touch on it here.
What does yoga do for the practitioner?
Yoga, to the western world is a way to calm the mind and stretch the body. In the eastern world it is much more than that. The movements are connected to the meridians of the body that carry energy to the organs of the body which will balance them. If you aren’t a great believer in that part of it—there is a science-based affect that yoga has as well and that is the movements also gently squeeze and drain lymph nodes and glands that release waste and then shower the body and mind with great feeling chemicals. It will boost the immune system and also—you guessed it, lose the weight you need by boosting metabolism and burning more calories as you would in a weightlifting session.
