Weight Loss by Yoga; A different weight loss experience
Yoga, an ancient discipline involving physical poses, breath work, and mindfulness techniques, is the most commonly used nondietary or supplement complementary and alternative therapy for weight loss. In clinical trials, yoga has improved a number of obesity-related outcomes including BMI, body weight, body fat, and waist circumference.Individuals who practice yoga report that yoga helps to improve diet and body weight and studies involving long-term yoga practitioners have found an inverse relationship between frequency of yoga practice and levels of obesity. In a research study of 15,550 adults, individuals who practiced yoga for at least four years were two to four times less likely to gain weight as they aged than individuals who did not practice yoga.
Yoga interventions were found to be effective for achieving weight loss and improving body composition and the most effective programs were residential and longer in duration, required more frequent and home practice, included a yogic diet, and incorporated a variety of yoga practices as opposed to exclusively focusing on a single practice such as the physical poses or breath work.
