In a word, it’s called “yoga.”

Yoga takes a different route to help the body lose weight.

Instead of burning more calories than you consume, yoga uses a much more holistic approach.

Scientists are quick to admit they’re not sure exactly how yoga works.

But, they believe that there is a mind-body connection.

Not surprisingly, changes in the body tend to lead to changes in the mind, and changes in behavior follow.  

Scientists believe that regular yoga practice can help eliminate emotional eating and help the person to develop a type of “self-compassion.”
