2 Key Benefits of Yoga: Elongates and Strengthens Your Muscles Resulting In Increased Metabolism

Yoga presents you with an opportunity to increase elasticity in your muscles; as well as increase overall muscular strength.  Yoga works like a pulley system on your skeletal and muscular system. When you bend at a joint you create length from the origin of the muscle to the point of insertion of the muscle. Throughout all of the postures you are bending at one or multiple joints in the body. When you combine this concept with the fact that you are using your bodyweight against gravity, you then create isometric muscular strength.

The longer your muscle fibers, the more strength you can gain in each muscle fiber. If your muscles are tight, you have less muscle mass to strengthen. As soon as you start to elongate and stretch your muscles, the more mass you will have to strengthen.Increase muscle with yoga

When you combine the increase in elasticity of your muscles with the work against gravity using your body weight, the results are stunning. Your range of motion will increase as well. Once you are able to bend deeper, stretch farther, you can work on strengthening more muscle length. The amazing thing about this is that you don’t even have to think about it. The benefits just naturally happen. You create a shape with your body in space and your muscles automatically get stronger and more open.

This automatically results in an increased metabolism. 

If you have been struggling with weight gain for just a few months, or most of your life, your metabolism has probably come to a grinding halt. No matter how much you exercise, do you feel as though you put on weight? This is a result of poor habits.  The Yoga Weight Loss System will create and foster healthy habits which will increase your metabolism.

Through simple yoga exercises, your abdomen will be massaged and 'wrung out'. Your internal heating system which helps with digestion will be stoked. You will start to notice better circulation throughout your body. The same increase in blood flow affects your rate of digestion, or your metabolism.

If you are on medication or going through menopause, your metabolism may naturally slow down, or almost stop. If you have been yo-yo dieting throughout your life, your digestive system may be in a state of shock and through self-preservation, you have stopped metabolizing food.

Yoga works organically and intuitively to increase your bodies’ parasympathetic nervous system to start metabolizing food again.

What a great benefit to just moving / stretching your body!

The Yoga Weight Loss System guides you along your weight loss journey with yoga. Charry explains step by step, the how and why and demonstrates the correct poses through full-color pictures and video!
