When used right (and incorporating all its limbs even as in conventional exercise) Yoga DEFINITELY can assist you to lose weight and did I mention the positive effects on your mental and spiritual health? I just did my friend!

Using yoga for weight loss won't look effective to most of the people. I bet you they'll go: Naw, it's just stretching what can it possibly do to burn calories?

Well, tons my friend. Yoga can work for weight loss if you employ it right and I'll tell you what to try to do in due course.

Boy, I can't tell you ways repeatedly I've heard that comment.

Well for interested parties, yoga as an option for weight loss is sensible , safe and effective.

Remember, it's the oldest physical culture known to man and not only does this exercise work the body, it works the mind and soul also .

Well, they never gained weight either, and that they actually all still look good for there ages right? 

Okay, here are the poses i like to recommend you employ when using Yoga for weight loss.

Now, my friend, I will be able to re-evaluate what I think is that the CORE of Yoga Poses. 

Trust me, there are times once I did this alone and still got the advantages that yoga gives from daily practice. 

Let's take notes:

The Sun Salutations When using Yoga for Weight Loss:

These exercises are a mixture of Yoga Poses, Breathing Exercises, bathing and Prayer. they need been practiced for hundreds of years by Yoga Practitioners in India, Martial Artists and African Wrestlers and as a system to rejuvenate the body and soul are beyond compare. It's been said within the Drugless Healing circles that one round of the Sun Salutations is far better than every week of exercises at the gym!

They are very simple to find out and almost anyone, no matter their fitness or flexibility levels can learn these simple exercises. really , if you're conversant in burpees (the calisthenics exercise), they are doing derive their origin from the Sun Salutations. 

Here are a number of their benefits: 

-They alleviate disorders of the skin and waist.

-Flexibility increases and breathing is corrected, moreover, they mildly exercise the legs and arms, thus increasing the circulation.

-They are the simplest thanks to burn calories and reduce weight and are often recommended for obesity and depression.

-They are an efficient way of loosening up, stretching and massaging all joints and internal organs of the body.

I'll re-evaluate SPECIFIC poses (asanas) which will target the difficulty spots and a few breathing exercises that might speed up burning from calories.
