What are you waiting for to lose weight this summer? ► http://bit.ly/21tl1lf
In this video you can learn several Yoga benefits (above all, how to lose 10 lbs with exercises) but also some poses for beginners that will allow you to start practicing yoga now.
Yoga for weight loss has several benefits:
1. It strengthens the bones
The different positions and movements in the yoga exercises promote bones strengthening since they increase bone density. For example, the standing poses are excellent for the bones of the legs and hips. In this way, practicing yoga helps prevent diseases such as osteoporosis and degeneration of the bones.
2. You sleep better
An investigation of the National Cancer Institute in the United States found that survivors of cancer, who had problems sleeping due to treatments of the disease, managed to sleep more deeply every night once they took gentle yoga, as Hatha programs.
3. Combats stress
After taking only one yoga class you will feel a state of relaxation and tranquility necessary for our state of mind and it’s really pleasant. Slow and deep breathing of yoga exercises helps us achieve the mental and emotional peace to combat stress and anxiety. This in turn relieves inflammations and strengthens the immune system.
4. More flexibility and mobility to articulate
Different yoga postures strengthen and increase the flexibility of muscles, ligaments, tendons, and fascia, which are the tissues that surround the muscles, improving the state of our locomotive system. The people who have practiced yoga for just 8 weeks have gained improved flexibility and joint mobility by 35%.
5. It protects the heart
Yoga reduces blood pressure and slows down the heart rate. It also reduces levels of bad cholesterol and triglycerides. At the same time it also reduces stress. Yoga exercises help you prevent heart diseases and strokes.
6. It improves the symptoms of osteoarthritis
Osteoarthritis is a disease that wears away cartilage. According to a study by the Johns Hopkins University in Baltimore, those people who suffer from it and begin to participate in yoga classes noticed a significant improvement of the joint tension and swelling.
7. Takes care of your figure
Practicing yoga does not burn as many calories as for example running. However, it has been discovered that those who practice it are able to maintain or lose weight without the yoyo effect.
