    Default Yoga for weight loss

    Hi all. I'm thinking of starting yoga. I am quite a bit overweight and have bad ankles from school sporting injuries and find that going walking is difficult as my ankle kill. I was thinking of starting yoga. Is there any overweight girls out there who have found that yoga or even bikram yoga have helped with weight loss as well
    As a diet. I'm currently making sure I get my 2-3 liters of water and have cut out coffee as well.

    Default Yoga for weight loss

    Hi Bubbles,

    Yoga will help strengthen your body, especially your core which will help lead you towards being more comfortable with other exercise.

    I would try walking every day, build it up over a few weeks until you are walking 45-60 mins a day. When you are walking , try to increase your speed for 3 minutes then slow back to a walk for 2 mins.

    Doing yoga and the walking with intervals will make a huge difference, then start throwing in some weights or a bike ride as your start feeling up to it.

    Good luck.

    I love yoga, it's a huge stress relief too!

    Default Yoga for weight loss

    Hi Sparked! Thanks for the reply! That's what I was thinking of doing - building up strength and then walking on my treadmill and using my excersise bike too. I just need something to get a bit of weight off before starting walking and biking. I like that yoga is good for stress!! I have a pretty stressful job and dh and I are ttc at the moment too with our first baby so it's stress all around!!! Have you done bikram yoga??
