  2. 2. A look at the benefits and limitations of this popular, mind-body practice.Yoga has been toutedas a cure-all, promising a slimmer, leaner body, improved cardiovascular health and a hotter sexlife. But are popular claims about yoga’s endless benefits stretching the truth?In the new book “The Science of Yoga: The Risks and the Rewards,” William J. Broad, a seniorwriter for the New York Times and himself a devoted yoga lover, looked at the available scienceto help establish precisely what yoga can and can’t do. “There’s a mystique that rolls out of Indiaand all things Eastern, which can get mixed up and produce a powerful image that can bedangerous to the extent that it can be misleading,” Broad explains. “The science can be awonderful tonic and helps clarify what’s real and what isn’t, what’s good and what’s bad.”Broad says the ancient form of exercise can do far more good for you than bad, but it’s stillimportant to separate fact from fiction. Here are eight common beliefs about yoga—and the Postsstudy-backed verdicts on which ones are true and which are false.1. The claim: Yoga is a good cardiovascular workout. Ideas Of What Not To Do In Order To Have A Productive DayThe science is clear: Even vigorous yoga doesn’t appreciably strengthen the heart and lungs.Take a 2005 Texas State University study Broad describes in his book. Researchers monitored Online Shopping, Its Advantages And Why26 women as they took a 30-minute hatha yoga class similar to many health club yoga classes. It’s Become So PopularDuring sun salutations the women reached nearly 35 percent of their maximum oxygen uptakereserve—the difference between how much oxygen they used at the peak level of exercise andhow much they used at rest—but only averaged about 15 percent of maximum reserve overall. Ways to Obtain Money Fast With The Use Of The Internet While At HomeTo put it in context: That’s less than the 45 percent of maximum reserve they achieved whilewalking briskly on a treadmill and well below the recommended 50 to 85 percent recommendedby the American College of Sports Medicine to achieve the benefits of aerobic conditioning. Tips in Increasing Motivation2. The claim: Yoga boosts metabolism. Tips in Achieving Success in LifeActually, the opposite is true. Yoga decreases metabolism. By a lot. One Indian study reportedthat regular yoga practice cuts basal metabolic rate—how many calories your body burnswithout doing anything except its basic duties, such as keeping your heart, liver and kidneyfunctioning—by eight percent in men and a full 18 percent in women. All things being equal, thismeans devoted yogis must eat fewer calories to avoid gaining weight. However, Broad believes Get Started Now!it’s misleading to focus on metabolism alone for weight control. “Yoga instills discipline and the *Emailrelaxing aspect can help break stress eating cycles, so often times it can help you lose weight,”he explains. “But it does so despite what it’s doing to you metabolically—not because of it.” start now3. The claim: Yoga floods your body with oxygen.Nope—this one doesn’t hold up under scrutiny either. According to Broad, relaxed breathingincreases the body’s level of carbon dioxide as fresh air mixes with stale air in the lungs, resultingin less than 10 percent of oxygen being replenished. Fast breathing when done to the point ofhyperventilation robs the brain of oxygen by causing blood vessels leading into the brain toconstrict and cutting oxygen levels by as much as half. Symptoms such as dizziness,lightheadedness and headaches can result and in extreme cases, can cause hallucinations andfainting, particularly among inexperienced yoga takers.More information will be provided on a additional blog, let me know what you think. converted by
