Slimming Serenity: Yoga Practices for reducing weight

If you have trouble losing weight despite your best efforts, this is because obesity is a complex disease with many causes. A family history of weight issues can make it more likely that you’ll have the same issues managing your weight. A diet high in ultra-processed foods, sugar, and fat and being sedentary also contribute to weight gain. 

Practice yoga as often as possible in order to lose weight. You can do more active, intense practice at least 4-5 times per week for at least 1 hour. On the other days, balance out your practice with a more relaxing, gentle. If you’re a beginner, start slowly start with a 25-minute practice and build up from there. This allows you to build strength and flexibility and prevent injuries. Allow yourself 1 full day of rest each week. Combine your yoga practice with activities such as walking, cycling, or swimming for added cardiovascular benefits.
