YOGA FOR WEIGHT LOSS

Gaining weight and obesity is essentially a state of metabolic
disturbance. We gain weight when there is an imbalance between the
intake and expenditure of energy in the body.
Yoga works in a unique way. It works on the endocrinal system and
changes the hormonal balance in the body. Unwanted fat from the
body is removed by burning calories as well as by altering the
hormonal balance of the whole body. Yogic asanas tone up the body by
penetrating deep into each tissue and muscle which general exercises
cannot achieve. Yoga will help you change the functioning of your
entire system, lose weight and build a healthy muscle tone.

have to undergo tremendous contractions. So, holding yogic
contractions is the key to losing the fat around your stomach. The
