Yoga is the simplest and the easiest way to reduce our excess weight and meditating our body and mind. The ancient practice of yoga provides a wide range of mind and body benefits, including other benefits like giving strength and flexibility, stress relief and even cures many diseases.
If you lack a lot of upper body strength, start slow and be safe. Plank pose is a great way to begin, as it not only improves your upper body strength, but also helps you maintain proper spinal alignment when you shift weight onto your arms. Simply holding a proper plank pose will greatly improve the strength in your arms and upper back, which in turn prepares you for more advanced positions.
Regardless of the version of Warrior Pose you execute, your upper leg muscles will be strengthened and stretched by the action. In addition, your back leg will also get a stretch.
Starting in Corpse Pose, extend the left leg straight on the floor and cross the right knee over the left leg as you twist to the right. Now repeat on the other side. Not only is this Supine Spinal Twist a good stretch, it is also relaxing and rejuvenating all at once.
Learning back bends is best done under the supervision of a certified instructor. Their benefits are many, including back flexibility and opening the chest. Many different types of back bends have these effects, and range in difficulty so that yogis of all levels have at least a few to safely practice.
While forward bends stretch the leg muscles as mentioned above, they also promote overall flexibility and have considerably relaxing effects.
