Yoga Helps You Lose Weight
Help for Weight Loss
Next time someone asks you, “Will yoga help me lose weight?” You can say, “Yes, it sure can!” And for proof you can go ahead send them this article link :-). In fact, as you will see below, you don’t even need a full fledged yoga workout in order to lose weight, you can do it by simply practicing Yogic Breathing!
Today I received an email from a long time reader who had undertaken the serious practice of Kapalbhati Yoga Breathing Exercise with the objective of burning fat and losing weight. So did Kapalbhati help her lose weight? It sure did and here is her success story in her own words.
Kapalbhati Helped Me Lose Weight – Pat’s Story:
Remember me? I corresponded with you a number of times, but have not done so in over 6 months — I think it has been that long. Anyway, here are my wonderful Kapalbhati yoga breathing weight loss results so far, as I promised you that I would let you know what they are from time to time. Well, I started doing Kapalbhati yoga breathing in Mid or late Feb. of 2011–about 11 months ago. At that time, I weighed 210 pounds. I just weighed myself today, and find that as of today, I have lost 17 pounds, and now weigh 193 pounds. Naturally, I am very happy and hope that you will be happy for me!!!
I have long since made Kapalbhati my own, and will most definitely use it for the rest of my life for continued weight loss and then for low weight maintenance. My goal is to get down to, and then to maintain 120 pounds, for the rest of my life. So, that means, I have about 73 or so more pounds to lose. I expect that that goal might take maybe 4 or 5 years for me to attain, but that does not matter to me because I am going to do Kapalbhati yoga breathing for the rest of my life, anyway, and I know that the longer it takes me to lose all of the weight I still have to lose, the better off I will be health wise. So, these are my Kapalbhati breathing yoga weight loss results that I have to report to you so far.
Yoga Helps with Weight Loss:
Pat is not the only one I know who has had success with losing weight with Kapalbhati. There are others who too have enjoyed success, with some having completely transformed their body, with Kapalbhati being the core of their weight loss program.
Although Pat’s testimonial is evidence that yoga breathing exercises in and of themselves are effective for weight loss, I would suggest a program which includes other aspects of yoga and Ayurveda to further accelerate your weight loss process. With Kapalbhati alone, Pat has been able to shed 17 pounds over the course of 11 months. This type of gradual weight loss is safe, natural, healthy and permanent. The weight that comes off, stays off. If you include yoga poses and exercises, along with an appropriate Ayurvedic Diet, you can aim to comfortably lose 5 pounds or so a month.
