Dear friends, 😀
Today, I have decided to go on a light diet and fast to give my body system a break, drinking lots of water. I am also incorporating some yoga exercise to help me in losing some weight and toning the body. A few years ago, I did yoga for a short while, following Kathy Smith’s version of beginner’s yoga, but I didn’t like her version – too boring and my daughter and I ended up with body aches. However, our yoga class 2 days ago was just superb as we didn’t get any body aches the following day but we were energised and invigorated for days. For example, I have been snacking on a couple of apples, hard boiled eggs and an orange since this morning and now that it is 3pm, I still don’t feel tired at all but fresh and ready to do some yoga!
I looked around Youtube for some yoga exercise that was similar to what I had gone through during my yoga class 2 days ago, and I have found one called “Beginner Yoga Exercise For Losing Weight”! How perfect! 😆 However, it is just a 7 minute video but we can do a few repetitions of it just to make up a half-hour session.
Do remember to stretch only as far as you comfortably can, do the correct breathing, and mindfully and slowly go through each pose…..by doing so, we will be harnessing the “qi” or “chi” or energy in the body. I will be looking for more suitable Yoga videos that are similar to my weekly Yoga classes to post here so that we can learn Yoga and lose some weight together! 😉
Beginner Yoga Exercise For Losing Weight
In this video, some of the poses used are –
* Mountain Pose
* “Sitting In A Chair” Pose
* Warrior Pose (what my Yoga teacher called for the arms and legs stretched out pose)
Remember to breathe in and out through your nose only, breathe slowly (you can count from 1 to 5 slowly) and breathe deeply. 😉
Hope you can do this yoga exercise and enjoy it as well. Feel your body relaxed and energised at the end of your yoga session. 😀
