Yoga For Weight Loss

YOGA FOR WEIGHT LOSS.

Yoga For Weight Loss in SW London.

 

 

There are lots of ways to lose weight or burn fat like jogging, weight training, cycling, running or personal training.

For those who don’t like to sweat it out quite as much, yoga asanas (yoga poses) for weight loss can be an effective alternative.

By practicing yoga you can lose weight, strengthen the body and gain flexibility.

Along with these benefits you can also experience mental strength and peace.

Losing weight and staying in shape also builds self-esteem and reduces cortisol stress levels, and if your stress levels are low, then your body will be less likely to store excess fat.

 

6 Ways in which yoga promotes weight loss:

 

Yoga speeds up your metabolism by stimulating the endocrine glands that regulate your metabolic rate.

Yoga poses will improve your circulation and the performance of the lymphatic system by reducing fluid retention in the tissues.

Yoga can make you stronger and leaner.  Weight-bearing yoga postures – and styles such as power yoga or fitness yoga – require strength, helping you develop lean muscle mass. The more lean muscle tissue you have, the more efficient your metabolism, so your body burns more calories at rest.

Yoga allows for better control over your appetite and fewer cravings.  The mind-body connection in yoga helps balance moods and hormone levels, leaving you feeling more ‘in control’ of your eating habits.

Restorative and gentle yoga helps weight loss, too by switching on the parasympathetic nervous system, which regulates breathing, digestion and hormones.

Yoga practice activates an internal heat. Yoga poses activate the nerves through systematic stretching, and this heat helps in burning the deep-seated visceral fat, as well as the superficial subcutaneous fat.
