Hello doctor,

I am a 23 year old obese boy. My weight is 110 kg and I feel myself unfit. I want to start practicing yoga for weight loss. But, I do not know anything about yoga. I want to know, how to meditate and relax our body and mind?

Hi,

Welcome to icliniq.com.

  • As per the data your weight is too high for an individual. You need to rebuild your lifestyle by giving time to exercise and yogic techniques.
  • Especially fast rounds of suryanamaskara will help you with your problems. Start slowly and day by day increase the speed of practice.
  • Also, you can practice some dynamic yogic techniques along with it for faster effects.
  • Along with yogic asanas, dieting also helps you to get rid of your problems. Cut down the carbohydrates like rice and use finger millet and include plenty of fruits and vegetables in your diet.
  • Try to consume lemon, honey and water daily morning in an empty stomach. Please do not consume any fast food or junk food to lose weight.
  • The main thing is that you need to be active in your day-to-day life. Give enough time to workout and running 
  • Meditation is nothing but controlling your mind, which ultimately relaxes your mind and body. A relaxed mind will always have a healthy body.
  • You can try practicing nadi shuddhi pranayama for nine rounds as a basic step. Later on will proceed further.
