Yoga at the Beach… a Great Way to Lose Weight
Yoga at the beach has always been a good idea, since we all know and recognize its benefits for body and mind.
At the beach… it´s even better. You boost your energy and focus your mind into positive vibes.
Strength your muscles and improve flexibility are also highly positive benefits of yoga.
When people think about “yogis” they imagine skinny and fit athletes. But Yoga can be practiced by anyone.
A very important aspect regarding yoga is the fact that it can be functional and you can focus it on your specific needs.
Lose Weight with Yoga
Typically, weight loss occurs when a person’s calorie intake from the food and drinks consumed during the day is less than their caloric spending during any physical activity.
When you see a yoga class you never imagine that it might be a way to increase the calories burning.
When you change the energy going through your body and mind you get able to lose weight.
Traditionally, we match calories burning with running, or high-intensity aerobic workout.
However, yoga can increase your mindfulness and your relationship with your body. Individuals become aware of what they are eating and make better food choices.
You begin putting away processed food unconsciously because it makes you feel sluggish and your digestion gets slow too.
Even though yoga doesn´t include a lot of movements it works out the muscles during the whole class or session, strengthening and lengthening, you do core work through the chaturanga and balancing.
Let´s Start Losing Weight
As you know with any other exercise we need to begin with a medical check out. But in the case of yoga, you can “keep calm and do yoga” since it´s highly healthy and safe.
Off course; as in every sport and discipline there are levels of difficulty and it’s not worthwhile to skip any of them, you need to have guide especially from an experienced instructor.
Like any program or routine for weight loss, you should engage in this activity.
You can shape your body with yoga but, you need to practice it at least 4 times a week to notice real body changes.
Thanks to the metabolism changes you lose weight too.
Something positive about the yoga practice is the fact that you don´t get loose and flaccid skin since you are shaping your body and dropping weight at the same time.
