Obesity is an unnatural state caused basically by activeness, high caloric intake, and metabolic factors. The tendency to not perform any physical exercise is the main cause of increased weight. It is difficult to specify beyond what weight a person is considered obese. A chart of the ratios of age, height and weight is prepared and efforts to define obesity using this chart have been made. (Such a chart is given at the end of this chapter). While no one can firmly state such charts are 100% accurate there is no difference of opinion regarding the consequences of obesity.

Actually, obesity is not a disease but the source of many diseases. The body has its own existence and hence its own weight. This weight affects all the functioning systems in the body. It starts affecting the functioning systems unfavourably when it starts exceeding its optimal limit. If the body weight puts stress on the organs, the organs that are weak are unable to function appropriately and a disease is developed in that organ. Hence it is said that obesity is the mother of many diseases.
The increasing body weight is nothing but the weight of excess fats stored in the body. A person feels exhausted even while walking with this increased weight. Climbing a staircase or running becomes difficult. The rate of breathing becomes rapid with even a little exhaustion. Sweats more and all this puts a strain on the heart. Consequently, diseases like heart disease, hypertension, asthma, arthritis or anaemia start emerging. The person is advised to reduce his weight at such times but reducing weight becomes difficult once a victim of the disease. Trapped in this vicious circle, the obese person not only becomes a patient but also begins a rapid journey towards death. Hence, even if obesity is not a disease, it must be cured of as quickly as possible.
Major causes of obesity:
Lack of Exercise
Impairment in the digestive system.
Imbalance in the function of Endocrine glands
Yoga does not offer quick weight loss. However it does offer long lasting effects. Initially you may feel that you aren’t making any progress with weight loss but you’ll start feeling more active and alive inside. Eventually the body will start responding and come back in good shape. Always remember that patience is of the essence. Don’t lose hope and be regular with your practice. Talk to your yoga therapist and chalk out a custom-made regime to help you lose weight.
A healthy body can be a home to a calm and receptive mind. It not only makes you look good but also adds confidence. It also takes you away from health risks so that you can enjoy life more freely. Yoga helps you gain all this by losing what harms your body. It’s a perfect win-win situation where you lose weight and gain back control of your body. So roll out your yoga mat and take the natural route to fighting obesity today.
Yoga practice helps develop the body and mind bringing a lot of health benefits, yet is not a substitute for medicine. It is important to learn and practice yoga postures under the supervision of a trained Mind & Soul Yoga Therapist. In case of any medical condition, practice yoga postures after consulting a doctor and a Mind & Soul Yoga Therapist.
