Yoga Promotes Weight Loss…

Several studies have found that people who begin regular yoga programs lose weight. In addition to weight loss, one study found significant reductions in fat folds – at the back of the arms, beneath the shoulder blades, and in several other locations – as well as in body circumference. Beyond the calories burned by practicing yoga, there can also be a spiritual and emotional dimension that yoga addresses; this may be part of the reason that many people find that yoga works for them when prior attempts at weight loss have failed. Yoga also brings a higher level of consciousness to eating and fueling and nourishing one’s body, which can often contribute to weight loss. (source: Timothy McCall, M.D.)
