The liver

Yoga asanas mentioned above help to stimulate the internal organs and liver. The liver is responsible for detoxification (cleansing) of the body.

Nervous System

Stress is one of the major reasons for fat accumulation at a faster rate. Stress means disturbed emotional state, and this causes people to eat more during stressful times. Also, stress causes the production of Cortisol hormone which in turn triggers hunger and accumulation of fat around the stomach and thighs. Yoga helps to strike a balance between (Flight and fight response) Sympathetic and Parasympathetic Nervous System. Yoga helps to relieve anxiety and stress and promotes holistic health by keep stress hormones and BMR (Basal Metabolic Rate) in check thus weight loss is appropriately regulated.

Yoga helps in regulating the pH at a safe alkaline level. So, opt for organic seasonal free green vegetables and fruits to maintain proper pH of the body.

Body heat

Yoga poses trigger the nerves because of the systematic stretching, and this generates body heat. The warmth generated helps in mobilising and burning the visceral and stored subcutaneous fat.
