If you have ended up gaining weight due to not being able to go to the gym, we say you turn to yoga. Wondering why we’re saying this? It’s because yoga is holistic and works from within. That’s why yoga has long term benefits when it comes to maintaining one’s body weight.
In our weight loss yoga series, we have recommended various yoga asanas that can help you lose weight. This time, we’ve got you a special yoga pose that is easy and safe to practice. We’re talking about the revolved chair pose or Parivrtta Utkatasana for you.
This asana is great for all those who are just beginning their yoga practice.
See how simple it is? However, if performing this asana seems a little tough in the beginning, you can sit on a chair to practice it. When you feel more confident, lift yourself off the chair and try to find your balance. Over time, you can start practising it without the chair.
According to yoga expert, Grand Master Akshar, the revolved chair pose can be extremely beneficial to those trying to lose weight. This particular asana not only works on your core area but also on the lower and upper back.
What’s more, it helps in the activation of abdomen muscles. The stretch you feel while practising the pose generates heat in the region to burn fat. This pose also helps in improving digestion. Moreover, it great for posture correction as well.
“Practice this asana regularly to develop core strength while strengthening the quads and glutes. This posture strengthens the supporting muscles of major joints, such as the shoulders, hips, knees, and ankles”, he added.
Ladies, add one more asana to your weight loss yoga list and see its magic!
