Yoga is a physical, mental, and spiritual practice that is started in Ancient India. The word ‘Yoga’ is derived from the Sanskrit word ‘Yuj’ which means ‘to join’ or ‘to unite’. Practicing yoga daily not only improves your flexibility but gives you peace.
I am practicing Yoga for the last 4 years and want to share a few things that I have learned with you. I shared some of the home remedies to lose weight that I take along with yoga. In this post, I will share a few yoga poses for weight loss.
Since yoga needs patience and the healing process in yoga is slow and steady, you have to keep calm and follow all the steps. You can not get an instant effect but you will definitely get positive results.
# Virabhadrasana B
This pose looks very simple but it needs lots of strength. The warrior pose tones the muscles in your thighs and shoulders. For doing this pose, spread your leg sidewise and make bend your front leg parallel to the ground. Keep your arms straight parallel to the ground and keep your body straight.
# Plank Pose
Plank pose is a very common pose in any kind of Physical Exercise but a very effective one. This pose tones the full body. Try to hold this pose for 30 seconds and increase this time day by day.
Halasana tones Shoulders and Vertebral Columns. This yoga pose regulates metabolism and helps in weight loss. Avoid this pose if you have neck injuries or menstruation.
To do this pose, you need to have a good sense of balance. You can stretch your arms up in the pose of namaskar after the pose shown in the picture. Your whole body stretches during this process. This pose is basically for toning of thighs, arms, and chest.
The Dhanurasana is a back stretching exercise that helps in flexibility as well as strength to the back. But if you have excessive problems with the spinal cord and disc, don’t perform this pose. Also, if you have severe stomach-related problems then don’t perform this pose.
Chakrasana is also known as Urdva Dhanurasana. This asana is a complete body stretch and gives flexibility to the spine. This Asana is also good if you want your breast in shape. Try to do it three times a day and hold the pose as long as you can. Increase the count day by day.
