Yoga for Cellulite

Ever wonder as to how far yoga can help you in getting rid of your cellulite? Make it a part of your daily routine and see the magic it brings to your life!

About Conventional Anti-Cellulite Treatment Methods

It is almost common knowledge that cellulite is one condition that can never be cured comprehensively through conventional medicine system. The fact is that a cure to your cellulite may not be that important, since an area of dimpled skin on your body may only give an unsightly look, but will not kill you nor cause you any kind of pain. All the same, cellulite affected persons – the majority of them women, seem to be averse to the sight of the cellulite dimpling that makes them feel ugly.

In order to help these unhappy people to get rid of their cellulite, a multitude of Anti-Cellulite Treatments methods are now available in the market. These methods include plastic surgeries, injections, mechanical massage gadgets, cellulite creams/lotions/gels, pills, patches, body wraps and many more. The latest entrants are the laser-based methods, which are known to reduce the cellulites rather quickly and effectively.

Results Obtained From Conventional Treatments

You could opt for any of these treatment methods to get rid of your cellulite. However, the fact remains that you do not get a permanent cure. You got to go for periodical maintenance treatment to sustain the good results obtained from your treatment all through your life. Since cellulite usually tends to aggravate with age, it may become a painstaking and costly proposition for you to repeat the treatments to prevent reappearance of that horrid dimpling.
What do you do then? You can stick to a healthy regimen of diet and physical exercises. Yet, the result you get is only to reduce your cellulite effectively – not eliminating it for ever.

One specific method from the alternative systems of healing, however, could help you in your goal of getting cellulite out of your body for ever. Try yoga. This age-old Indian system can help you in a very big way – spiritually, emotionally as well as physically – if you can make it a part of your daily life.

The Yoga Magic

Yoga can change your life with its inherent capabilities to go deep inside you, explore your body and mind comprehensively and strives to eradicate all that is bad in your system. This deep investigation followed by the innate corrections, which are the basic characteristics of various yoga practices, lead to harmonizing your complete self – body, mind, et al.

This typical yoga approach of total wellbeing of the body is also applicable to the Cure Of Cellulite. Yoga targets those physical deficiencies that lead to the onset of cellulite. It helps in cleansing up the toxins accumulated in the body, speeds up your metabolism, improves your circulation and streamlines the process of lymphatic flow. Once these physiological actions start happening regularly, all the related physical problems – your cellulite too – start to disappear from your system rather expeditiously.

Prescribed Yoga Practices

There are some specific practices that are deemed beneficial for any type of skin conditions. These are given below (and are required to be undertaken in the given order) :

  1. Asana. Surya namaskara, sarvangasana, halasana and mayurasana.
  2. Pranayama. All types of pranayamas.
  3. Mudra. Vipareeta karani mudra.
  4. Shatkarma. Laghooshankhaprakshalana.

Yoga also advises on dietary restrictions. As for skin conditions (including your cellulite) the advice relates to either avoid – or reduce to the minimum: non-vegetarian dishes, spicy/oily food, sweets, coffee and tea.

Do you think you can do it? You probably should if you don’t want to continue cellulite affected!
