Yoga @ Poolside & Gym . Northpoint Residences, Mid Valley City

Yoga is a highly effective way to stay fit, healthy and lose weight. The best thing is you can perform it at anywhere you want it and any time of the day. Yoga techniques are helpful in maintaining strong organs and other parts of the body. Yoga poses focus on the muscles, joints, glands, tissues and vital organs. The five yoga for weight loss techniques include: posture, relaxation, meditation, deep breathing and movement of joints. Each technique has its own role and function.

Yoga for weight loss session will often begin with a standing pose. These are a very good low impact, low stress. Standing poses benefit the legs and hips and help provide a sense of centring, balance and strengthen the legs. The end of Yoga for weight loss session is usually marked by a group of poses known as Relation and Restorative Poses. This group of exercises is designed to give the positive energies and forces released by the Yoga weight loss session to move throughout your body and benefit you completely.

Yoga weight loss poses (2 example): 
Cat and Cow poses
Arching the back upwards like a cornered cat places you in the cat pose and the reverse, lowering the back puts you into the cow pose.

Twists will strengthen and stretch your back or abdominal muscles and help to increase the flexibility of your spine. They also aid in increasing your bodies circulation that brings oxygen supplies to your cells. This fresh blood and oxygen supply that is released as you twist will improve the functioning of your body’s internal organs.

Another yoga photography to assess my body and improvement: Over the CNY holiday and overloaded invited food reviews in KL, I have put on some weight, I can tell from the photos and also while I'm going into the poses. Back in Kota Knibalu now, time for me to get back in shape.....!!!

Staying focus: Mind and Body connection
Back pain: One of the common problems of present day, is caused due to stress and tension in the muscles that support the spine. Sedentary lifestyle, stress, overuse or under use of the back, postural mistakes are unconscious triggers to the widespread problem of back pain. Regular exercise is a redeeming feature that brings relief to back pain.

Backache strikes when the muscles are under fatigue, commonly at the neck or lumbar region (where most twisting, turning or bending occurs). Frequent backaches occur due to overstrained or over stretched muscles, improper sitting positions, stress, lumbar scoliosis and earlier injuries. Many conditions cause back pain and they can be treated with conscious and gentle yoga practice. It has proven to be a safe and effective way to alleviate many forms of back pain and prevent its recurring bouts. However, all cases of back pain need to be evaluated by a medical expert for diagnosis and treatment.

Healing Benefits of Yoga
Yoga strengthens muscle groups. Many postures in yoga strengthen the back and abdominal muscles and help the body maintain a proper upright posture and movement. Stretching and relaxation reduces tension in stress carrying muscles. When these muscles are well conditioned, it helps to offset back pain. Yoga eases lower back pain, by stretching and strengthening the muscles of the lower back. It increases blood circulation, which brings healing nutrients to the injured tissues. Yoga also helps maintain a natural curvature of the spine that is crucial in avoiding lower back pain. Thus, Yoga is an excellent therapy for healing injured and sore back muscles, speeding time to recover from an injury and preventing re injury. It also reduces the risk of disability due to back pain. In short, Yoga increases awareness of the body and keeps the body healthy and supple.
