A yoga routine specifically designed for weight loss based on yogic texts with voice instruction.

"Yoga for Weight Loss" is part of Saagara's new series of apps for various ailments. Combining the simplicity of "Core Yoga" with traditionally therapeutic yoga poses, weve constructed an app aimed solely at helping users manage their weight.

While dieting has been shown to reduce visceral fat, exercise is essential for burning subcutaneous fat stores (those that cause belly and thigh fat). This app is designed to help you tone your abs, get in shape, and improve your overall health.

According to the yogic texts, excess fat must be converted to strength and energy for effective weight loss. "Yoga for Weight Loss" has incorporated specific exercises which mobilize the bodys fat reserves and turn them into usable energy. Regular practice of these exercises makes the body lean and healthy.

"Yoga for Weight Loss" draws upon traditional hatha yoga and was formulated by an expert in ancient yogic methods. The program guides you through several yoga poses while emphasizing correct breathing methods. As you become accustomed to the exercises, you can change the settings from beginner to intermediate to advanced, for a longer more effective session.

Yoga asanas and techniques included:

-Suryanamaskara A (Sun Salutation A)
-Suryanamaskara B (Salutation B) advanced
-Trikonasana (Triangle Pose)
-Veerabhadrasana (Warrior Pose)
-Utkatasana (Chair Pose) advanced
-Purvantanasana (Upward Plan Pose)
-Bhujangasana (Snake Pose) intermediate
-Shalabhasana (Locust Pose) intermediate
-Dhanurasana (Bow Pose) intermediate
-Sarvangasana (Shoulder Stand)
-Ujjayee Panayama (Victorious Pranayama)

Users may want to first try our app "Core Yoga" which is better suited for beginners. After practicing "Core Yoga" for a few weeks, you should be able to comfortably practice "Yoga for Weight Loss".

    Not helpful

    There is no sound but music, which means you have to constantly look at the screen to know what to do. What good is having inhale and exhale on top of the screen if you are supposed to be looking at the floor or ceiling. Wish I hadn't bought it!!

    Useful App

    I find this app nicely put together. Graphics are lovely and sound quality is good. However, I think the easy difficulty level should give instructions at a slower pace since I am still just a beginner to yoga (instead the easy difficulty just gives you fewer exercises to do). The instructions can be just a little fast for a beginner to pick up easily.

    I also find a few of the exercises difficult for an overweight person to do, which I had thought the point of the app was to assist losing weight (this may be more for people that want to lose 5-10 lbs rather than 20+ lbs).

    The poster complaining of no voice instructions is incorrect. They are likely using the app wrong (click the arrow at the top of the screen, not the individual exercises that gives a description without voice) or they have the voice setting turned off. Also, if you read the instructions, it would inform you that the music tells you when to inhale/exhale using different sounds.

    I just bought this app for my nook hd and it doesn't work. It is installed. but after you tap the icon to start it, it says loading then "unfortunately weight loss has stopped" and it goes back to the home page. I sent an email to Saagara and am awaiting their reply.
