Yoga’s primary emphasis is upon general well-being. Although yoga has been shown to be beneficial in a variety of conditions, it is not considered a therapy for specific illnesses. Rather, yoga employs a broad holistic approach that focuses on teaching people a new lifestyle, way of thinking, and way of being in the world. In the process, however, it is also found to bring a myriad of healing effects. By attending to practices for improving, regaining or retaining general good health, a person is likely to find that some of his more specific difficulties tend to disappear. Many of the healing effects of yoga is clinically verified. We will look at the healing effects of yoga. However, one of the most important benefit of yoga is its application in relieving stress, fatigue, invigoration and vitality and its anti-aging properties and its application for relaxation therapy.

According to Swami Sivananda, the benefits of pranayama (yogic breathing practices) include: “The body becomes strong and healthy. Too much fat is reduced. There is luster in the face. Eyes sparkle like diamonds. The practitioner becomes very handsome. Voice becomes sweet and melodious”

Indra Devi, author of many books on yoga suggests that with yoga: “You will be able to enjoy better sleep, a happier disposition, a clearer and calmer mind. You will learn how to build up your health and protect yourself against colds, fevers, constipation, headaches, fatigue, and other troubles. You will know what to do in order to remain youthful, vital and alert, regardless of your calendar-age; how to lose or gain weight; how to get rid of premature wrinkles, and keep a smooth skin and clear complexion.”
Doing yoga regularly offers many benefits, including making you feel better about your body as you become stronger and more flexible, toning your muscles, reducing stress and improving your mental and physical well-being. Will it help you lose weight, though?

Answer: Practicing any type of yoga will build strength, but some types may not raise your heart rate enough to make them the only form of exercise you need to include in your weight loss regime. It depends on the type of yoga you select and how frequently you practice it.
In order to lose weight, you must eat healthily and burn calories by doing exercise that raises your heart rate on a regular basis. Some types of yoga, such as Iyengar, in which yoga poses are held for several minutes with a resting period between each pose, will build muscles and improve your posture, but will not give you the cardiovascular workout you need to lose weight.

If you plan to make yoga your primary form of exercise, you must do a vigorous 90-minute yoga class at least three times a week. Many people also choose to combine yoga with running, walking or other aerobic exercise in order to reach their weight loss goals.
Ashtanga:
Ashtanga Yoga is a very vigorous style of practice with a few distinct advantages for those who want to lose weight. Ashtanga practitioners are among the most dedicated of yogis, and beginners are often encouraged to sign up for a series of classes, which will help with motivation. Another advantage is that once you learn the poses, Ashtanga Yoga is ideal for home practitioners.

Power Yoga:
Power Yoga is extremely popular, because it provides a very vigorous cardiovascular workout.

    I’m looking for a book that covers all the different aspects of yoga as well as all the types of yoga. I just started doing what I think is called Astanga yoga. I am so confused though because there are so many different words to remember and different types of yoga (ie. plasha yoga, asana, and I can’t remember all the rest). I want something like an encyclopedia of yoga, so that I can learn about the philosophy, the types of yoga, the meanings of all the words, the history, the poses, the mantras, etc. I don’t want a book that focuses on just one type of yoga or on just one aspect of yoga. There are plenty of those. It’s like a wild goose chase trying to find the essential stuff to read. Is there a book that covers all of the yogas?

  2. I really want to start excersing and keeping in shape but as you can see Im not really a big fan of sports. Soccer, Baseball, Basketball, Football, Volleyball, You name it. I really want to get into something like aerobics or perhaps yoga. Just something to keep me active and fit. Do you recomend anything else? Oh also would there be a class for teens age 15?

  3. I do yoga and feel there is no other form of exercise that comes close.

  4. Hi, i jog after school for 30 mins 3 times a week but as its getting really cold out and dark when i get home, i’m wondering if i will lose weight equally or more by doing Ashtanga yoga instead.
    I’m also wondering where i will lose fat if i do yoga as opposed to jogging.
    Thanksss 😀

  5. I have never done yoga before, I am in decent shape (i jog 3 miles several days a week) I don’t really understand yoga, but I’m told it helps with stress and I need that! I am also a beginner so I’d like one that explains what I’m doing while still making me feel like I’m getting a workout.

    Thanks!

    Hi,
    I wanted a good resource that had good material on Yoga Poses, Yoga Positions and other forms of yoga, like hata yoga, ashtanga yoga. What is the difference between Pilates and Yoga?
    Also I would like something for beginners and that also teaches specific aspects of weight loss.
