Yoga to Lose Weight Over 40 - Tone Your Body With Yoga Exercises

Are you over 40? Would you like to have an attractive, toned body? How would you like to lose weight while doing relaxing exercises? Then yoga is for you.

Yoga does not only give you greater flexibility and improves the mobility of your joints- particularly important for the age group over 40 when bodies become tighter and tense. It has many more benefits:

Yoga will improve your posture. You'll automatically be more attractive. Others will unconsciously see you as confident and capable because your hold your body upright and you are standing tall. The exercises work out muscles you normally not use that much so you'll get an overall toned body. All these exercises use only your own body weight, so you do not need any equipment making them perfect for a "workout at home".

Some yoga exercises will get your heart rate up quickly, so you'll burn fat and lose weight. Important: You should not put pressure on yourself doing them. It's meant to be a stress-releasing, relaxing experience. You'll learn to exercise while you relax yourself and enjoy your body.

If you need to compensate for a desk-bound job, these exercises will be of great relief. They strengthen your back muscles too, helping prevent back pain and headaches. When you have a break from work, yoga exercises relax and energize you quickly. You'll learn to breathe consciously what helps greatly in stressful situations.

A good exercise program should include 3 components: strength training, cardiovascular training and flexibility training. Yoga provides all 3 of them while giving you a stress-releasing relaxing experience. Especially over 40 we tend to lose flexibility and our bodies start to get tighter. Yoga exercises assist you in balancing the effects of being over 40 while helping you to lose weight permanently.
