Yoga and Weightloss

Yoga at HartleyHeys can help you to lose weight in several ways and when combined with a good well balanced diet it can be highly effective.

Yoga is an ancient spiritual science developed in India over five million years ago. While yoga is often thought of as the physical practice, the full practice includes all aspects of lifestyle including diet, mental attitude, choices about one’s lifestyle and philosophical study.

The practice of yoga turns attention inward, as the practitioner observes her- or himself with an attitude of compassion. As the practitioner gains skill, a sense of physical, psychological and emotional realities often shift, becoming less influenced by the external forces of modern culture and more anchored in an internal value system.

The practice of yoga may aid the development of mindfulness during mealtimes, aiding awareness of portions sizes, food preparation, and eating speed.
