Yoga for weight loss

Yoga is one of the best and most effective ways to shed off those extra pounds that bother you every time you want to attend parties and get-togethers. This stress that you experience will release a hormone called cortisol that makes you hold on tight to those unwanted pounds especially in your belly area. So here we have certain yoga poses that might help you work magic on your body.

Magic Yoga Poses to Shed Those Extra Kilos

Once you are regular with yoga, you can be assured that your cortisol levels can be taken into control and the journey to weight loss becomes easier. So watch out for those poses now.

Surya Namaskar or Sun Salutation

Surya namashar is considered the emperor of all yoga poses. It is a series of poses which is also used as a warm up pose. It makes the entire body work out and is an ideal pose for weight loss. The posture tones the neck, spine, shoulders, arms, hands, wrists, legs and back muscles. If done in a proper way then it is bound to show good results. Surya namaskar is a series that comprises 12 postures and burns up to 13.90 calories for an average weighing person. The day you can reach up to 108 rounds, you will definitely see a leaner you when standing in front of the mirror.

Virabhadrasana or Warrior Pose

It is best when you want to tone your legs, arms and lower back. It further will help you to build your stamina which will be a requirement when you want to go in for more challenging poses. To hold strength while you work on this pose, ujjayi breaths are recommended as they build heat in the body while relaxing the mind. It improves metabolism by stepping up your blood flow and oxygen to the muscles. This in turn burns calories and fat even while not in motion.

Dhanurasana or Bow Pose

If you want to lose belly fat, then this is an ideal pose for you. The stretch that it gives to the abdominal region loosens up the fat and tones the arms and legs. It helps to control weight by building muscles and enhancing metabolism. This, if combined with a proper diet can help you achieve significant results.
