I’ve been practicing Yoga for several months now and I’ve found that it’s a great way to burn calories.
The collection of poses in this post are great! I especially like the Modified Sun Salutation Poses. I’ve always had a problem with the Down Dog poses and these modified versions are just what I was looking for!
if you are overweight and curious to try yoga but convinced it won’t work for you? As a plus-size person, for me these yoga tips helped work on my flexibility, my core, and was the foundation that helped me improve myself in many ways.
This infographic is very encouraging! As yoga involves a lot of bending and stretching, it’s kind of difficult to practice yoga when you’re on the healthy side. But with this post, thanks to the modification advice, plus-size people may just give yoga a chance as an effective exercise to lose weight.
I have been avoiding yoga because of my size even though I’ve heard it’s good exercise and good for stress relief and mental health too. This info-graphic gives me hope that I could manage a class with the right instructor and modifications and maybe start benefiting from it right now instead of waiting until I lose enough weight to try it.
Doing Yoga while at a heavy weight is challenging, but the benefits are worth it. Sometimes holding the poses feels overwhelming but overtime you improve and the poses feel relaxing. The information provided here is great and very useful. Anyone looking to try Yoga should review this information.
I love this! I have been on the hunt for “plus sized” workouts. Even something as simple as locking my hands behind my back and pulling them away just isn’t possible because my arms are so big. Thank you so much for this post! I will definitely be trying this tonight.
These are great tips. A lot of people who are not in great shape, or know nothing about yoga are nervous about going to a class because they do not want to look ridiculous or be unable to keep up. But beginners are the ones who benefit most from taking a class, and it can benefit anyone no matter their fitness level.
Thank you for the great infographic. It has inspired me to try yoga out. Like others have mentioned, I was afraid that I would be unable to do the poses. I think if I start with the modified routine and stick with it, eventually I will be able to do the regular poses.
I actually have been teaching my daughter to do yoga with video lessons. Now I will join her. I think that will inspire her to continue and try harder to learn the new poses. It’s important to model positive behavior for your kids. Working out together is a great way to do that.
I have a “plus size” friend who always has refused to do yoga with me! I love yoga and have been trying so hard to share with her the amazing benefits and everything. There’s no need to be self conscious once you realize the purpose of it all. Just relax and just BE. You are beautiful and whole and yoga just brings out the best feelings, no matter what shape or size you are!
