15 Simple Yoga Poses To Lose Weight Fast

15 Simple Yoga Poses To Lose Weight Fast

Many people see yoga as a way for hippies to become one with the Earth. While I’m certainly not arguing that case there is so much more to yoga.

Not many people associate yoga with weight loss because on the surface it appears you are just standing still in a lot of different poses.

The thing about standing still in certain poses is that it puts a strain on muscles. This causes muscles to start to rip, in a good way. When the muscles rip they need to rebuild and that requires energy. Some of this energy is taken from the fat your body has stored.

This is why some people believe that fat turns into muscle and vice versa.

The first time people do yoga they assume it would be a breeze. Turns out some almost pass out in the first 10 minutes.

This article includes a compilation of the 21 best yoga asanas (poses) for losing weight quickly and easily. A word of warning, some of these are difficult to do so don’t strain yourself the first time around.

Yoga is something that needs to be practiced for many years before it can be mastered. You’ll find yourself feeling muscles that you didn’t even know existed because yoga provides you with a full body workout.

Before you attempt these poses watch the videos for each. Some are meant for everyone and others are meant only for advanced yoga practitioners.

That doesn’t mean that there aren’t other yoga asanas that you can perform that will help. There are hundreds of yoga asanas to perform that will benefit you.

We just like the ones below because they can help push you to the limit and back again.
