Yoga Also Recommended For Men

By Setiram Nisual

In general, men are more hesitant to start practicing yoga than women. However, when they realize its great benefits than ordinary exercises can bring, they soon include yoga into their daily exercise routines. Yoga is simple yet extremely effective because it has no side effects and won't make men anorexic or very slim. It is recommended for weight reduction since the deep breathing in yoga increases the oxygen ingestion to the cells of the body, including the fat cells which burn because of oxygen. In addition, the combination of serious stretching, meditation and proper breathing techniques in yoga, leads to relaxation, calming of mind and stress reducer. It is beneficial because feeling inferior and stress are some of the mental uneasiness caused by obesity.

Being fat has always been a big issue for people as it causes various physical and mental discomforts. That's why effective planning and implementation of plans to lose weight through yoga is a must to earn back all those comforts. Keep in mind that yoga is not like running that needs a high intensity to make you sweat just to lose weight. It is a moderate method that tones your body by stretching and breathing mechanisms.

In reality, very fast weight loss cannot be experienced in yoga. However, yoga though ancient proves to be more effective than ever. It does not only soothes minds that most of us know but instead it can remarkably reduce weight. All you need to do is to practice the synchronized combination of the stretching and proper breathing. You not only back into shape but you will have a healthy body and mind. Happy yoga to all guys out there!
