Yoga - What Are the Different Poses and Postures?
The reason that yoga helps you to lose weight is because it is dedicated to helping your body eliminate toxins. We are full of toxins. From the food we eat to the air we breathe to the water we bathe in, toxins invade our body daily. Yoga is designed to help your body eliminate these harmful toxins.
Not only do you eliminate toxins through the various poses, but since yoga lowers levels of stress hormones and increases insulin sensitivity, your body can then go into fat-burning mode and burn food as fuel rather than store it as fat.
The best part about yoga is that since it is low impact, you can practice it at any age or any fitness level. "Never too late, never too old, never too bad and never too sick to do this yoga and start from scratch again." says Bikram Choudhury, the founder of Bikram yoga.
