Yoga for Losing Weight.

 

Yoga for Losing Weight – private yoga in Southfields, Wimbledon, Putney, Wandsworth and Fulham.

 

Yoga may be intended as a way to calm your mind but also is a great way to get in shape and lose weight.

Many people try ‘easy’ ways to lose weight like drinking weird shakes full of artificial rubbish or popping supplements, but these are never going to be sustainable ways of losing weight and keeping it off long term.

Dieting is just a short-term solution.

Not only are you likely to gain the weight back, but you’re going to feel frustrated and disappointed in yourself.

Losing weight and maintaining the weight loss require a holistic approach and a total lifestyle change.

Yoga is a perfect way to help you embrace your healthy lifestyle and tone your body at the same time!

If you are still sceptical, then let me convince you why you should try yoga for losing weight:

 

  1. Yoga improves your digestion.

A lot of people don’t realise that having less than optimal digestion messes with your ability to lose weight.

Digestion allows your body to absorb the nutrients you need and get rid of the stuff you don’t.

If it isn’t working all that well, then the digestive system isn’t able to absorb in those vital nutrients, and empty nutrition certainly contributes to weight gain.

Yoga increases the blood flow to the digestive organs which is beneficial.

Twisting and folding poses massage the abdominal organs, stimulating blood flow and increasing intestine movements.

      2.  Yoga is a combination of cardio and strength training.

A well-rounded exercise routine should include cardio, strength, and stretching.

Lucky you: yoga practice includes all of those things!

You can choose a Vinyasa flow which is great for cardio and strength or Hatha yoga which is perfect for building and toning muscles – or you can mix both.

      3.  Yoga promotes full body health.

Yoga not only strengthens your muscles and aids in digestion,  there are so many other qualities that make your practice much better than a short-term diet.

Yoga also:

  • reduces stress – when you are less stressed it will help to regulate your appetite and hormones
  • improves your flexibility to reduce joint and muscular pain
  • improves your posture, resulting in less back pain and better core strength
  • prevents osteoporosis, arthritis, and high blood pressure from developing

 

Losing and maintaining weight isn’t just about calories in and calories out.

You need a well-functioning body to lose weight.

Yoga is the perfect mixture of getting you in shape long term and helping you to stay healthy and balanced no matter where you’re at in life.
