According to Ayurveda, it’s not about reducing weight. It’s about breaking that tendency to gain weight. And in order to do that, one needs a new lifestyle altogether. Yoga and Ayurveda can help you achieve that.
With all the conveniences of modern life, such as washing machine, car, or computer, we do not use as many calories as we did just a few decades ago. Another big player in the weight gain game is diet. Modern lifestyle includes an abundance of packaged food with appealing food aromas, food colors, spices, refined products and even addictive ingredients. No wonder we find ourselves facing the weight-gain dilemma. How can yoga help us get out of the vicious cycle of taking in more calories than we burn? Listed here are some of the benefits of doing yoga for weight loss:
1. Yoga can give you the energy and enthusiasm to create your weight loss plan and more importantly the inner strength required to stick to the plan. Create a strategy based on clear understanding of your problem.
2. Yoga can support your weight loss goals by giving a healthy direction to your life energy.
Yoga postures help balance your body. Some yoga poses, when performed correctly, massage the endocrine glands and the digestive system which improves digestion.
3. Yoga is a natural exercise for everybody. We have been doing yoga right from the time we were babies.
Lastly, and most importantly, yoga can help control how much, how and what to eat. Regular yoga practice can give you a valuable and unshakeable body consciousness that would help you eat less and the right kind of food.
