How Yoga can help Trim that Waistline

When trying to get back into exercising, it’s important to remember that there are three aspects to every successful exercise plan: stretch, get your heart rate up, and use your muscles. A lot of people are searching for the right exercises that will help shed some inches off that pesky waistline, while also not trying to completely break down their bodies. Well, look no further and try some yoga classes! Yoga incorporates all three of the aspects listed above, and is perfect for all ages! It’s good for the young, the old, those in need of balance, and too many virtues to even list.

Nothing like the Tiger Pose and Stretch to make us ponder the role of middle weight gain. Some of us get this middle bulge from genetic predisposition, others as we age, and in others it’s a consequence of the hormone lack in menopausal women. Metabolism slows with aging because of many factors including inactivity (keep posing!) and pancreatic insulin production slowing. Our skeletal muscle is the primary tissue that, if told to by insulin, can grab the sugar molecule glucose and metabolize it. If glucose is not grabbed by the muscle and metabolized, those sugar molecules you are consuming will turn to FAT! Solution to the problem: Add Muscle! How? Yoga!
