Weight loss is traditionally approached as a physical problem and tends to be fixed by only focusing on physical means such as diet and exercise education without attention to the emotional and spiritual needs of the person. Diet and exercise are great for sure, but they do not fix the problem and definitely are not the answer to why a person is overeating.

Overeating is an emotional issue and needs to be approached with emotional and spiritual means. Yoga is an exercise that stimulates and fulfills people mentally, emotionally, spiritually, and physically, so when someone feels fulfilled on all these levels, it increases her/his sense of self worth , so she/he has less need to overeat or abuse the body. Weight loss begins to occur naturally due to an increase in self-esteem and self love that yoga and meditation offer a person.

Although yoga is not a heavy workout or aerobic exercise, but it can help you to los weight in a pretty surprising way and if you just start doing yoga for 20-30 minutes every day in a few weeks you will see a change in your body and the way it looks. The balancing yoga exercises combined with breathing techniques will help your body to get rid of toxins by flexing the colon and emptying your bowels every day and getting over anxiety and the gland problems in your body. Physical postures and poses known as asanas will help you to feel healthier and happier.
