Yoga for full body weight loss
For the past few years, yoga is thriving. The studios are springing up like mushrooms everywhere and many are those who undertake the practice of yoga for full body weight loss. In addition to the obvious benefits of yoga such as flexibility, it also brings many benefits unknown who are the transformers. I present to you some benefits unknown to the practice of yoga.
Practicing yoga and ideal weight for your body!
During my university studies, I have held for some years the post of receptionist in a large yoga studio. The mode of the hot yoga arrived in Quebec and was in full swing.
At the studio, it was crazy since we were we also have a system to offer hot yoga. People came by shovelfuls to try this “silver bullet” to lose weight… you See, some of the studios less rigorous and are advisable and had oriented their marketing strategies by defining this new form of yoga as being the miracle cure to become a yogi, thin and defined.
The problem with this is that hot yoga does not lose weight, at least not more than the yoga regular.
Yoga is not an exercise at intensity high enough to be considered cardiovascular. The loss of energy expended during the session will not be large enough to make a real difference on the scale.
The body and the mind are intimately connected. One affects the other and vice versa. And when one embarks on a crusade against fat, shot by extreme means such as hot yoga, the body is going to rebel and the mind as well. This is one of the reasons why the extreme diets and treatments don’t work. When it defines our body as the enemy, judging it to be too big, too soft, by not taking no care in the abuse of coffee, junk food and disassociating yourself from it by numbing it with alcohol and drugs, our body will also define the mind as the enemy.
Yoga and relationship with our body
This dissonance between the body and the mind increases the stress level of the body, and thus the wrong operation of the latter. By experience, the more one is bent on our body, the less it will give us what we search. If you want to make a big difference too eagerly, there is a risk of tearing a muscle and if our weight loss is too sudden, the body will seek at any price to rebuild its fat reserves
So how yoga can be a great way to lose weight? Because he comes to change our relationship with our body.
Yoga teaches us to be gentle with our body. To meet our current physical limits and to gradually exceed them smarter and safer.
Yoga teaches us to reconnect with our physical envelope. To feel our body and the signals it sends to us to express his needs. It teaches us to differentiate the actual sensation of hunger the desire to eat out of boredom or sadness.
By developing our sensitivity to body, we are more sensitive to the effects of the food that we eat on our energy level and our digestion. When one takes the time to truly get a feel for how one feels after eating junk, the crash after the high of sugar has passed, it was suddenly less keen to eat it. Learning to respect our body and listen to it, it was more envy of many feed and take care of it. It becomes a real virtuous circle.
Weight loss through yoga is long term
Weight loss through yoga is so gentle and in the long term. I myself have seen success stories from clients who have lost 50, 60 pounds and even more in a few years, gradually and sustainably. Over the years, your body will quietly its ideal weight. The place where he feels comfortable, strong and flexible. The place where it works best and provides the best performance and resilience.
