Yoga for Weight Loss (Paperback)
An instructive, inspiring guide to using yoga as an effective and approachable tool to lose weight and achieve a healthier lifestyle.
More than your average exercise regimen, yoga has helped enthusiasts discover personal equilibrium and maintain it for a lifetime. In Yoga for Weight Loss, renowned physician and longtime yoga practitioner Loren Fishman demystifies the scientific link between yoga and weight control, outlining its medical, physiological, biological, and spiritual impact.
“To many of his patients [Dr. Fishman] is a miracle worker” (Jane E. Brody, New York Times), and in Yoga for Weight Loss he brings his expertise to the page to show how simple yoga postures, explained and illustrated here, can work inside the body on a cellular level. These accessible poses, adjustable to different skill levels and medical conditions, can curtail appetite while stimulating a greater utilization of calories that may help practitioners lose as much as two to three pounds per month. Yoga for Weight Loss is an indispensable resource for those seeking a practical and holistic weight loss journey.
