Yoga To Improve Metabolism
I come across people doing all the workout but not losing any weight. Unfortunately, trying every possible workout schedule to see different result. Evidently, I have been there, I was one of them. However, I am not gonna say that yoga sequence put an end to all of my problems, no, yet, with right diet and conscious efforts it is possible to achieve the things you have been working towards. Now, these yoga poses are design to ease your digestion system, improve metabolism, therefore, help weight loss. Here we go.
Always warm your body up, first. I would like to do downward dog, plus some more moves during the Sun Salutation. That helps my body to awaken. Additionally, you can try the following flow. Firstly, tand in the mountain pose and move your hands up and down. Prepare your body for what is going to happen. Keep your mind on boosting your metabolism. Mind-body connection is the key in these sequences. 😉
Here are 8 Moves to Improve Metabolism
Start with downward dog and bring your leg through, find your balance and sit up. While keeping the pose, inhale, and as you exhale come a bit more down. Again, inhale, and as you exhale come down to downward dog. Repeat on the other side.
This pose is good for digestion. Improves balance, as well. Cross your legs and arms. Elbows should be on shoulder level. If you can’t do it yet, it is okay, it is going to happen. Do the same for the other side. Really think about how it helps your digestion system. Mind-body connection.
Bend your knees, stretching your back muscles and think of your digestion system. You can bring the palms together, and rotate to the left, bringing right elbow to your left knee. If you look up the sky, it will give you more rotation. It imporves metabolism more and more as you inhale and exhale. Surely, repeat on the other side.
This pose is gonna boost your energy. Lay on your stomach, lift your chest. If you can, lift your legs, as well. The main focus here is on your back. Inhale and exhale for 30 seconds or 1 minutes.
Grab your legs by ankles, lift your knees and chest off the ground. Hold for 30 seconds – 1 minute. Gently release the legs and come up to your back
One of my favorite poses. Keep elbows as close as possible, hands behind the butt. This pose, also, opens up the chest. This is reperation for the next move – shoulder stand.
Slowly lifting the legs up to the sky. Spread your fingers on your back it will help you get more of balance. keep your legs as straight as possible, and try to keep it perpendicular to the ground
Slowly, convert from shoulder stand to plow pose. bring your legs above your head and put them to the ground. now i can’t stay in this pose too much, but stay if you can up to 1 minute.
Lying Spinal Twist
My other favorite. It stretches glutes, obliques, and good for finishing off the routine. Helps slowing the heart rate.
