WEIGHT LOSS

Besides the benefits listed above, it appears that yoga can also be beneficial for weight loss. Yoga has been linked to weight loss in a number of studies. A research published on the Harvard Medical School blog revealed that adults who did yoga for half an hour once a week for 4 years acquired less weight than their colleagues in middle age. Individuals who were heavier and did yoga saw their weight drop, according to the site.

Yoga is a practice, not a diet. Diets teach you to eat less, but yoga teaches you to eat better. Yoga is a lifelong practice.

WHAT IS YOGA?

Yoga is a system of exercise, breathing, relaxation, and meditation. You practice by doing asanas, which are physical exercises, and pranayama, which is breathing exercises. The asanas include positions that stretch and strengthen the body. The positions are easy to master, and, because they create space in the spine, help align the vertebrae, improving the flow of prana through the body. The exercises also stretch the muscles, which improves flexibility.
