Yoga and weight loss issue
Yoga is not the perfect and appropriate way to control the body weight. It works as a catalyst to keep the mental health safe and well. Sometimes it can work for weight management as well.
Basically it is not the proper way to lose weight though, but it can discourage the weight gaining process, which indirectly contributes in the weight loss process.
Some yoga can help individuals directly to burn calories from the body. But, depending on the few factors yoga can make differences in the calorie burning from the body. The major contributing factors are likely-
- Methods and types of yoga
