If you’re like anything like me, your conversations revolve around “Nothing works!”, “I need to lose weight.”, or “I want to lose weight – badly!” I have tried myriad forms of diets, traipsed through bountiful videos, and buried my head under never-ending listicles. Guess what? None of them worked, and I am glad that they didn’t, for I wouldn’t have turned to yoga. And, in the process, wouldn’t have made it a way of living. And, yes, I lost weight – tons of it.
Like they rightly say about yoga,
Let’s now talk about a few yoga asanas that help build your muscle strength, tone your body, and help you lose weight.
Yoga For Weight Loss
This asana is known to tone the facial muscles and is a good stress buster too. It is a basic pose, and anyone can do it, irrespective of their age. When you sit in the Lion Pose and stick your tongue out, your facial muscles, along with the thorax and spine, are stretched. If you do this regularly, you will see your double chin vanish within no time.
There are absolutely no potentials risks. If you have trouble sitting in this pose, sit on a chair and do the asana.
2. Jalandhara Bandha
How It Works
It is one of the most sought-after asanas for thyroid patients. You need to lock your chin on the chest, between your collarbones, while holding your breath. This will make your jawline defined.
If you have any breathing issues, do this asana under the supervision of a certified yoga teacher. Do not attempt this if you suffer from high blood pressure or heart disease.
