Fast, high impact exercises and too many reps to count aren't the only ways to lose weight. Running 5ks and doing HIIT (High Intensity Interval Training) will definitely get the pounds off. But they'll also leave you so out of breath you'll think you're going to pass out and can do lasting damage to your body if you're not careful. Thankfully, this yoga for weight loss class is a whole different story.
Although yoga is best known for increasing strength and suppleness, it's also a great way to lose weight easily, comfortably and for free. I've been scanning the internet for the best yoga for weight loss video there is and I've found it! The instructor is super friendly, the poses are entirely doable and the whole workout is so fun that you'll actually get excited about exercising. What could be better than that? Oh yeah - it's free, too!
WARNING: This yoga for weight loss video could result in:
- Real weight loss
- A toned body
- Looking pretty damn hot
- Feeling awesome
Tricked ya, huh? 🙂 But it's true. These yoga poses really will help you lose weight. But before you put on your yoga pants and get out your yoga mat, let me tell you a few little things about the video.
It's not a great place for beginners to start. If you're a total yoga newbie, I recommend you try the 30 Day Yoga Challenge for Beginners first. The beginners challenge takes everything at a much slower, more relaxed pace and teaches you each of the yoga poses separately. This yoga for weight loss video, on the other hand, assumes you're already pretty familiar with yoga and goes through the poses pretty fast.
If you have been to a few yoga classes or have done a few videos at home, I still recommend you take some time to watch the whole video through and then give it a try. Otherwise you could find yourself in a body knot on your yoga mat when you should be in a perfect vinyasa!
But don't let the fast pace of the video put you off. You move through the poses pretty quickly because that's the best way to lose weight with yoga. Each of the mini flows is repeated several times, so you'll easily get the hang of it. Especially if you do the video on a regular basis.
None of the poses in this yoga for weight loss video require any amazing yoga skills like you need to pull off dancer, lotus or crow. Instead, you'll find pretty simple poses that require a lot of movement done at a fast pace.
