“Yoga for Weight-Loss” is part of Saagara’s new series of apps for various ailments. Combining the simplicity of “Core Yoga” with traditionally therapeutic yoga poses, we’ve constructed an app aimed solely at helping users manage their weight.
While dieting has been shown to reduce visceral fat, exercise is essential for burning subcutaneous fat stores (those that cause belly and thigh fat). This app is designed to help you tone your abs, get in shape, and improve your overall health.
According to the yogic texts, excess fat must be converted to strength and energy for effective weight loss. “Yoga for Weight-Loss” has incorporated specific exercises which mobilize the body’s fat reserves and turn them into usable energy. Regular practice of these exercises makes the body lean and healthy.
“Yoga for Weight-Loss” draws upon traditional hatha yoga and was formulated by an expert in ancient yogic methods. The program guides you through several yoga poses while emphasizing correct breathing methods. As you become accustomed to the exercises, you can change the settings from beginner to intermediate to advanced, for a longer more effective session.
Yoga asanas and techniques included:
-Suryanamaskara A (Sun Salutation A)
-Suryanamaskara B (Salutation B) – advanced
-Trikonasana (Triangle Pose)
-Veerabhadrasana (Warrior Pose)
