Can Yoga Aid Weight Loss?

There are some yogasanas that are known for their ability to stimulate the thyroid gland. The hormonal secretion from the gland is improved leading to increased metabolism, which leads to unhealthy weight gain.

Yoga can definitely help in weight loss since they affect the whole metabolism and other aspects of the body's functioning. You need to learn about the asanas and pranayamas that help to regulate the secretion of thyroid gland. This gland is the main organ associated with weight gain or weight loss.
Breathing Exercises or Pranayama in Yoga for Weight Loss
If you practice deep breathing the supply of oxygen to the blood increases leading to burning of the fat cells of the body. Some of the excellent pranayamas or breathing exercises for weight loss are kapalbhati, anulom-vilom, bhrastika and the like. The good effects of these practices can be seen as early as after five minutes of practice. The layers of fat on your body are removed with each deep breath or modified breathing that you take.
The muscles of your body get toned and their ability to process fat gets improved, thereby improving the endurance level of the muscles. Certain yogasanas are specifically aimed to stimulate the lethargic thyroid gland in order to increase the hormonal secretion. Thus, yoga acts upon metabolism of our body --increases metabolic activity and helps in reducing weight.
