The following are questions that Yoga teachers still need to answer, in spite of overpowering proof that Yoga is “the mother of all health maintenance systems.” Mainstream thought is finally making up ground, with the progress Yoga is making, but it has taken 5,000 years for us to get this far.
Seriously, how can Yoga allow you to lose Weight?
Finally, some of the “Yoga and Weight Loss” studies have come in, and even, a little bit of Yoga is much better, than none, for weight control, but there are a lot of explanations why. Yoga will change your lifestyle that includes a secure diet exercise, modifying posture, breathing, and a lot more. Most of the Yoga practitioners, I know, take in more water, eat more reasonably, and take more care of their bodies, in comparison to the many who don’t want to depart from the couch.
Aren’t you required to jump up and down for around half an hour per day to exercise enough to lose weight naturally?
Maybe the public are “brain washed” in thinking that you have to feel the pain, suffer, starve, and also have a near death encounter, to lose weight. Depending upon your size, the average person, in a moderate Hatha yoga class, is burning in the neighborhood of 200 calories per hour. There are Vinyasa Yoga classes which will burn more calories, having a lot more flowing and lively movement. Just remember, that your safety is priority, and you’ll be fine.
There are also Yoga lessons where you can feel the pain, heat, and suffer. This is great for people who want to “pay for their sins.” Maybe this is considered “penance,” for years of consuming excessive pizza, hamburgers, and buffets. If you feel you must suffer, you may even find a Yoga instructor who skipped his or her calling as an interrogator.
If you search hard enough, you will find a Yoga class for each area of interest. More moderate Yoga classes look simple on the outside of the class, but I’ve seen many people find them to be a concern, on the inside of the class. The true benefit of regular Yoga practice is training for durability. Long-term practice will deliver ideal health benefits in mind, body, and spirit.
Couldn’t you just invent a Yoga pill?
It has been the ultimate dream of “couch potatoes,” yet every time a weight reduction tablet comes out, there is a down side. Just look at the health issues that lead from fen phen and ephedra. This should wake people up, but someone will invariably take their life in danger, no matter how many warning labels are printed.
To sum up, the advantages of Yoga exercise have constantly been around, through constant and risk-free practice. Seek out a safe instructor and start from there. By no means push yourself to the stage of strain. Moderation is vital so it is wise to prevent opposites.
