By practicing some simple stretches, breathing techniques, relaxation and creative imagery, one can learn to cope successfully with stressful situations, and stay calm and relaxed, even under the most trying circumstances.

Lose weight, naturally

Most people who are trying to lose weight are aware of the basic guidelines for weight management - proper diet and regular exercise. However, what they lack is the willpower to follow a routine on a regular basis that will ultimately result into a lifestyle change. Yoga helps develop the necessary willpower, reduces craving for food and alcohol as well as helps burn calories through the physical and breathing exercises in a yoga routine. Yoga also helps in improving digestion, eliminating toxins and regulating the endocrine system; all of these help regulate the weight and bring it to an optimum level.
