5 Yoga Poses for Weight Loss

Try these top 5 poses for easy and effective weight loss

It’s getting to that when in the New Year we will all be thinking about getting into shape, increasing our fitness and health levels and possibly losing weight. And let’a face it, after the last almost two years we have had it can be a tough thing for some of us to face.

Yoga encourages the use of breathing (and oxygen) to be directed and focused to the areas of the body that need it the most, a technique that can be translated when doing other forms of exercise to help you sustain whatever you are doing for longer, supporting you to go deeper and harder into anything you are doing.
