Burn fat and feel your best with these wonderful at home yoga routines for weight loss!
Yoga is the last type of “workout” I thought I would do to lose weight. But you know what? When you do a million and one sun salutations you start sweating and this kinda changes your mind. And your body!
This here is a small collection of weight loss yoga routines that can help keep you calm while shedding some pounds and making you stronger.
During the last year, I couldn’t run, I couldn’t lift weights and I couldn’t do 10,000 push-ups. I didn’t have time and I also always felt tired just from being a mother of a growing baby.
That’s when I found out yoga can be a great way to start moving your body more. In a mindful and graceful way at that. Getting started with yoga is an excellent way to ease into a consistent exercise routine. There’s no jumping around, no lifting 100-pound weights, no 100 sit-ups or push-ups. But it works!
And because it’s easier than most other types of workouts, you just want to keep doing it every day. You’ll feel taller, more flexible, stronger, calmer, just better in your body.
When you stay consistent and choose the right yoga routines you can start losing weight too. That’s what happened to me. Yoga is the most important part of my morning routine, and even if I only have 10 minutes I HAVE to do it.
Here are 3 ways yoga can help you lose weight:
- you become more mindful of how you treat your body and consequently of what you eat
- you feel happier, calmer, more alert, and you stress less – which can all lead to weight loss
- there are types of yoga that can actually help you burn more calories
You can make your own yoga workout plan with the routines I share below. I highly recommend using a workout planner and a workout log on a regular basis to help you keep track of your workouts. What would you like to do again, what would you like to maybe come back to in a month or never (if the workout isn’t any good). You can find the fitness planner pages I use and love here. You simply print them out, track habits, workouts and meals for one week, then set a goal and make a plan that you follow. To get 20% off, use the code NTB20.
