Common Questions and Answers about Losing weight yoga poses


Avatar f tn Diet is first and foremost in losing weight, so the first thing you have to do is make sure your calories are in check. Center your meals around lots of veggies and lean protein. As for exercise, try yoga. You can start slowly and as you become more accustomed to the poses, you can move into them more and more. While the trainer looks like s/he does the poses effortlessly, that's because they do it all the time.
Avatar f tn No tingling or numbness, just a loss of strength especially in weight bearing yoga poses (handstand, upward facing bow, etc.) for my shoulders and when I do massages I can barely grasp or apply pressure with my right thumb and pointer finger. I don't know what to do! I love being active and my livelihood depends on it. I've been to the chiropractor with no avail. Thank you for reading, I appreciate any advice you can give!

Avatar f tn What yoga poses work best to stretch your lower abdomin when cramping?
Avatar f tn I'm new here btw.. The name is Cynthia :) Anywho, here is a little background for you. I was in a relationship for a long time. Almost 5 years. I'll be 22 soon. In high school I always weighed between 120-130. I was engaged for 3 of the 5 years. (Young for that huh?) During that time, I gained weight. Which at first wasn't that much. But it got so out of control and I didn't know I even ate that often. I was so stressed out and sometimes I wouldn't eat at all.

Avatar n tn It's a great addition. Yoga tends to be more mussel building and toning your body, when working out to loose weight you need a good combination of cardio and body toning. I love doing Yoga and it's very helpful to me, but if I didn't walk/run on a treadmill I wouldn't have lost any weight.
Avatar f tn There are lots if YouTube videos to help you know what poses are safe. If you didnt exercise before yoga is still safe as long as you are careful with the poses. My mother in law did yoga religiously and her labor was 10 mins once she got to the hospital. It really helps me with the back pain now. Don't know what I would do without it.
Avatar f tn I try and I do some of the poses and stretches buuut I don't know if it's because my uterus is getting bigger and is sitting right on that nerve but it hurts terribly. I mainly try the poses that pull my uterus off my spine (momentarily of course) but I'm just scared that I might be doing a pose unsafely... That's why I do the class... She modifies poses based on our individual week. My husband massages the area sometimes too.
Avatar f tn Healthy eating and moderate exercise are the best way to lose/keep weight off. You can't "spot lose", such as the belly, but you can tone the muscles, so it won't look as large. You might try yoga; it's excellent for toning muscles.
1149046 tn?1264361586 Can you please tell us your height, current weight, activity level, etc are? Do you really need to lose weight or do you just need to tone muscles? I've read that it IS harder for women to lose weight than it is for men, but I'm sure that's not an "across the board" determination. I did try Mega-T Green Tea with Hoodia --- it did nothing for me......

1430240 tn?1290434023 I searched online for a calculator that told me my caloric needs for each trimester. Prior to becoming pregnant I had just started losing weight through reduced calories and frequent exercising.
Avatar f tn Have either of you looked into chair yoga or a yoga for seniors? You don't have to be a senior to use them? Basically, there's a yoga for nearly every one, that will help bring back some mobility, without doing further damage. Check with your doctors.
Avatar f tn You can try facial yoga. Yoga poses that force your head downwards are considered to give the facial muscles a good workout, along with deep breathing exercises. As a bonus, this helps to keep you looking younger.
Avatar m tn You can't restrict your calories too much or you won't have enough to live on. 1200 calories is not enough for most people. You need to calculate your actual calorie needs, based on your current height, weight, age and activity level. Talk to your doctor about yoga -- it's moves are very low impact and you have to be aware of how you do them. Yoga centers on building core strength, breathing and relaxation. It can help you build muscle, lose weight and regain lost movement.
Avatar f tn Have you ever looked into yoga for your son? Yoga is one of the best types of exercise for people with all types of conditions, because of its low impact on the body. With yoga, you can start out at a very low intensity and it's not necessary to keep up with the "instructor" - you do what you can, as well as you can do it...
Avatar f tn I have been doing 7 miles a day on the stair stepper, but I am having trouble losing the weight. I plan on going back to bikram yoga in another 2 months when the twins are on solids and I can leave them for 2 hours at a time. My goal is to be back in a size 4 by September. What are you ladies doing to drop the weight? How is it going?
Avatar n tn t underlying medical problems that might cause weight gain or prevent you from losing weight (hypothyroid, etc). By all means get his/her blessing before embarking on this journey.
