With its focus on medical yoga designed especially for the plus sized set and for people who can’t exercise on the ground, Beginners Dynamic Yoga for Stress Release and Weight Loss offers a stress releasing system of integrated body movements, breathing techniques, and mental focus that incorporates therapuetic breathing techniques to help you lose weight by decreasing appetite and releasing stress.
Chronic stress affects every cell in the body and can even raise blood sugar as much as a candy bar. Stress also increases cravings for comfort foods and as a side effect, a person gains weight, gets depressed, eats, gains weight and the cycle repeats itself. Stress signals the brain to tell the body to go into fight or flight mode, which in turn puts stress on the organs and tissues. In response, the body produces powerful hormones, including cortisol, which causes a craving for sweets and carbohydrates, so when we turn to food for stress relief, we choose food that is high in fat and calories.
Suzanne Andrews, whose program, Functional Fitness with Suzanne Andrews, airs to over 45 million on Public Television, is a living testimonial to the weight loss power of her specialized medical yoga methods. Suzanne, a licensed therapeutic rehab practitioner, has also lost over 60 pounds—yes, 60 —since she began incorporating yoga into her functional fitness exercise program.
Inspired by this experience, Suzanne has designed a system of functional yoga poses that anyone can do. As she says, “You don’t need to eat pretzels or be a pretzel to do yoga.” By integrating deep breathing exercises into her deluxe DVD and CD set, viewers release stress, decrease appetite and lose weight in the comfort of their own homes without the added stress of having to contort into a pretzel.
Remember; Less Stress = Less Weight and more energy. Beginners Dynamic Yoga for Stress Release and Weight Loss is available at Amazon.com and Walmart.
