Yoga is a great way to pace our active minds. BUT can it help us to become & stay slim?
The answer is yes!
There are many varieties of Yoga – Hot Yoga, Ashtanga, Vinyasa and HIIT Yoga that are more physically active and can burn more calories than traditional forms of exercise such as running and gymming, with probably lesser stressed placed on your body and joints.
But that isn’t all.
The benefits of Yoga go way beyond this. Studies have found that Yoga can help one to become more mindful about being healthy! Yes, Yoga helps you become healthy from within! A study from the Journal of the American Dietetic Association found a strong link between yoga practice and weight maintenance. Researchers attributed this to “mindful” eating.
“Mindfulness” is a great way to lose weight and stay slim – this refers to being aware (mindful) about what you are putting into your body! You are able to learn what makes your body feel good when eating, you might have a greater appreciation for your food and you might even eat slower as you savour your meal – this practice help us to eat less.
Now that you know this, let’s put our knowledge to use! Join us for any session of Ashtanga, Vinyasa or HIIT classes and see the difference it makes in your life!
