Obesity is becoming the most dangerous word in recent times. There are lots of side effects which people face because of having over weight. Improper habitual, life style contributes to a major extent for this. Yoga procedures greatly reduce this risk and it reduces weight and optimizes the fat content present in your body. As I mentioned earlier, practices will reduce your breathing cycle and increases the capacity of your lungs, it easily oxidizes the blood cells in our body. I have reduced 12 pounds in 40 days time through practice of a efficient practice called Shambavi maha mudra. I got trained into this through a social organization based in southern region of Tamilnadu. There are special courses available to handle this problem and any yogic procedure for sure will in someway or other will help you find a solution for obesity related problems.
