Yoga and Obesity

Obesity is one of the biggest epidemic in American society today. Solution is however, simple. Yoga can help reduce obesity.

While at the physical level, yoga helps us improve our digestion and build our core strength, at the mental level regular yoga practice builds self esteem and helps us appreciate ourselves just the way we are.   At the spiritual level we get a deeper understanding of our true nature and the cyclical interaction between humans and the food we eat.  We tend to enjoy wholesome and sattvic diet of controlled portions.    Perhaps the most important aspect of practicing yoga is the ability to be aware of our every thought, word and deed, including our eating habits.  We become keenly aware of what we eat, when we eat, how we eat and how much we eat.  Self awareness alone is enough to help our body and mind self-regulate without any external aids. 

Only caution is yoga is not a magic wand and does not offer instant solution.  It takes time to develop a good practice and self awareness.  But the weight loss is lasting as are the life changes that go with it. 

Do you practice yoga? Please do and remember to consult your doctor before taking up yoga.
