Yoga for Obesity

The development of yoga has benefited many people in losing weight but many people believe that just doing yoga does not reduce weight.


People become obese due to unbalanced behavior, mental stress, sugar, BP, laziness and many other reasons. Yoga Asanas improve energy and vitality, balance metabolism, improve athletic health, increase muscle tone and aid in stress management. For these reasons, yoga can be effective in weight loss and developing mental health as well.

Here are some Yoga asanas and tips for weight loss.

  1. Trikonasana – Triangle pose: Trikonasana improves digestion and simultaneously helps in reducing the fat stored in the abdomen and waist. It also stimulates and improves blood circulation throughout the body. The movement of this asana helps burn excess fat from the waist and builds muscle in the thighs and hamstrings.
  2. Sarvangasana – Shoulder Stand Pose:
    By fully inverting yourself with the help of your shoulders and your abdominal muscles, Sarvangasana helps strengthen your core and shoulders. It not only boosts metabolism but also helps in balancing thyroid levels. Sarvangasana or shoulder stand strengthens the upper body, abdominal muscles and legs, improves the respiratory system and improves sleep which reduces obesity.
  3. Sankhya Pranchalana asana is very beneficial for obesity.
    Asanas involved in the Sankhya Pranchalana Kriya are
    Tadasana
    Tiryak Tadasana
    Kati Chakrasana
    Tiryak Bhujangasana
    Udarakarshana Asana
  4. Sethu Bandha Sarvangasana – Bridge Pose
    This asana works wonders for the thyroid gland and weight loss. The bridge position works on improving muscle tone, digestion, hormone regulation and supporting thyroid levels. Obesity also occurs due to thyroid malfunction and this asana is a panacea for thyroid issues.
  5. Dhanurasana – Bow Pose
    In this posture, keep yourself flat on the ground on your stomach and join your hands and feet from behind. It massages the abdominal organs, improves digestion, strengthens the thighs, chest, and back and is a perfect way to achieve a flat stomach. It stretches your entire body and strengthens and tones your muscles along with better blood circulation.

  • The true meaning of enlightenment and how to achieve it.

Decoding the Yoga Sutras of Patanjali does just that. It decodes and simplifies the wealth of information contained in the Yoga Sutras of Patanjali. Maharshi Patanjali realized that the mind is the repository of all the happiness and miseries experienced in one’s life. He delved into the mysteries of the mind, detailed its inner workings and devised methods to eliminate life’s miseries.

The modern-day, despite technological and social advancements, is rife with problems. Maybe more so than in the past. Depression, anxiety, stress and a host of other illnesses are on the rise in today’s world owing to hectic lifestyles. Many mainstream solutions to these problems including retail therapy, vacations, materialism, and even medication only address the symptoms. We believe that this is a temporary solution at best. Until the root cause is dealt with, no real change can occur.

In this book, we will walk you through Patanjali’s teachings and methods to tame the mind. We have simplified the language, removed myths, superstitions and curated critical information from the original texts. What you get is rational, logical, practical and easy to understand information that can be incorporated into your lifestyle. By addressing the root cause of all suffering, you will start to see profound changes in your daily life.

Decoding the Yoga Sutras of Patanjali aims to help the 21st-century man through ancient yogic wisdom.
