The 31 poses featured in the video below can actually be grouped into 10 basic categories because just like exercise yoga poses are simple movement patterns that can be modified and adapted for all fitness levels and body types.
A yoga pose can be as easy as you need it to be or as challenging as you want it to be and the great thing about yoga is that you don't have to do all the super advanced poses to get all the amazing benefits.
Below is a quick list of all 31 yoga poses featured in the yoga poses for weight loss video. The list may look a bit overwhelming but if you watch the video you can see how I grouped poses into 10 general categories.
Like all exercises, all yoga poses are simply movement patterns that can modified to be as easy as you need them to be or as challenging as you want them to be. The main difference between exercise and yoga is that yoga provides so much more than fitness, fatloss and toning.
I promise you if you just practice 10 min. after your workouts you will not only change your body faster but you will get a whole new and improved outlook on your body and on life too! Start with any of the poses in the video or try the 20 min. practice below by Shiva Rea. It's one of my favorites!
I tried yoga for the first time when my son was about 5 months old but didn't really get into it until one of my old dance injuries started acting up in 2004.
My rolfer actually recommended yoga and I'm so glad he did because I've been hooked ever since.
Not only did yoga help me restore mobility and flexibility and eliminate my back pain it also helped me recover from adrenal fatigue that I experienced from the stress of my divorce. I practice at least 10 min. a day every day and do a longer 60-90 min. practice about once a week.
I love yoga so much that I got a specialty certification in yoga for mind body healing back in 2008 and I study yoga continuously. I love teaching yoga stretching exercises to ALL my clients and they love the toning & fatloss results from fun yoga poses.
