Reducing Weight by YOGA

The origin of the word yoga is the Sanskrit word "Yuj" meaning to yoke, join or unite. This implies joining or integrating all aspects of the individual - body with mind and mind with soul - to achieve a happy, balanced and useful life, and spiritually, uniting the individual with the supreme.

A Mudra is a position usually performed with your hands and fingers that seals and directs energy through the body. It's like speaking to the body without words.

For reducing weight, Surya Mudra is the mudra to be practiced. "Surya" means "sun". Sun is the source of energy. Virtue of its energy is present in all living beings. Surya mudra attracts energy of the Sun.

Sequence:

Touch the third (ring) finger to the pad of thumb.
Press the thumb gently over this third (ring) finger.
Keep the other fingers aloof.

Benefits:

This mudra decreases Earth element in body.
It cures mental heaviness.
It also reduces body fat.

The mudra is good for weight loss. Practice it daily twice for 5 to 15 minutes.
