B.R.E.A.T.H.E. TO BURN!
There are plenty of studies claiming to help you lose weight. Some claims even go as far as to say that Bikram Yoga, in particular, can help you burn more calories than running. For this reason, a lot of people wonder just how many calories are burned in one Bikram Yoga session and how exactly this helps in weight loss. To lose weight, it's not just about counting the calories you consume. Losing weight involves so much more than that. We will give you an idea of just how many Bikram Yoga calories you can burn per 90-minute session. According to a special calorie calculator used by Bikram Yoga practitioners, a person who weighs 13.5 stone can expect to burn a thousand calories per 90 minute Bikram Yoga session. This is the equivalent of running at the speed of 6 mph for 90 minutes. Other reports from Bikram practitioners peg the average figure at 350 to 700 calories burned per Bikram Yoga session, depending on the weight of the individual and other factors. How exactly does this exercise help you burn calories and lose weight?
The secret is in learning how to B.R.E.A.T.H.E.
That is the 7-step formula that will explain how you too, can start burning off those Bikram Yoga calories as early as now!
B is for Beliefs Burning more calories not only means practicing the 26 Bikram Yoga poses. It also means making changes in some of your beliefs and thought processes. If you constantly think of food as fattening, then it will definitely BE fattening. On the other hand, if you believe that it is easy enough for you to burn off those Bikram Yoga calories, then chances are great that you WILL burn them off easily.
R is for Regular Practice You will need to do at least three sessions Bikram Yoga sessions per week in order to truly burn those enough calories. Doing five to six sessions per week will get you where you want to be even faster.
E is for Eating Habits Yoga practitioners are encouraged to eat a balanced diet with proper food combinations. Eating well will definitely help you reach your weight loss goals sooner.
A is for Acceptance of Yourself Along with the physical elements that help you burn more calories, this form of yoga also allows for a wonderful experience of emotional cleansing. Obesity is often caused by our emotions. Therefore, emotional cleansing is an excellent way of warding off excess weight.
T is for Throwing Away the Scales Of course you want to lose weight, but you don't have to keep weighing yourself or counting calories to do that. In fact, it is much better to do away with those scales and focus on the positive changes in how you look and feel.
H is for Hydration You may be drinking plenty of liquids each day, but you may not realise that you are drinking the wrong kinds of liquids. Too much coffee, tea, or fizzy drinks can actually dehydrate you. Hydration is necessary to keep your body functioning properly. And besides, you need to replenish the water you lose as you sweat away all that excess weight.
E is for Excellence Finally, you won't be able to optimize your ability to burn Bikram Yoga calories unless you make sure that your poses are performed correctly. You have to be conscious about your every move in order to reap the full benefits of Bikram Yoga.
