This is a proven fact that practicing regular yoga helps with mindful eating. People who eat mindfully tend to be healthier and are less likely to become or to stay obese. A study done by researchers at Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center has proven this. The four-year study found that people who practiced yoga regularly either maintained a normal body weight or lost weight. Researchers found that it had more to do with increased body awareness than the physical practice itself. It also showed that people who had a regular yoga practice gained less weight over 10 years than those that did not do any yoga at all.
It is a common misconception that yoga is not easy, but as the famous yoga guru Krishnamacharya said: “If you can breathe, you can do yoga as well.”
