5 Reasons Yoga Works for Fat Loss

The 5 Reasons Why Yoga Works for Fat Loss - this might surprise you!

1. The "Yoga Lifestyle" is associated with better diet and lifestyle habits.

2. People who do yoga are more in tune with body and realize how certain foods and meals make them feel, and also probably recognize the feeling of fullness better.  

3. Social support – When you do yoga in a class setting, you are going to end up hanging around healthier people and adopting their behaviors.

4. It decreases stress – and if that "really" has an effect on belly fat loss, then good!

5. If you're stretching, you're not eating. That's a big one…sometimes we just need to keep busy so we keep out of the kitchen at night!

It can be a part of a fat loss program,

This is a bit random but have you ever tried a spiderman plank? You are in a regular plank position and bring your knee to your elbow just like a spiderman pushup. I do 5 per side and then hold the plank or 30 seconds and repeat. Killer ab exercise!
