Will Yoga Help Me To Lose Weight?

   

"Many people report that high intensity exercise makes them so hungry that they eat too much afterward, cancelling out the calories they’ve just burned. Yoga, on the other hand, rather than exhausting the body, energises it, and our appetite becomes regulated so we are less likely to overeat.

Yoga has long been criticised for not being an efficient way to lose weight by those simply measuring calories burned without taking into account yoga’s ability to calm the mind, reduce stress and reduce appetite – all of which contribute to weightloss…

Although high intensity exercises are great, they have a very short life span as they put a huge amount of stress on our joints. However, yoga can create strong and agile limbs that enable us to be able to continue practising yoga well into our 80s."
