Like most yoga teachers in Rishikesh, you too can get abs with proper guidance and planning. However, it is always important to clear some abs and fat loss myths before getting to the real tricks.
Abs, Is it Possible? If yes, how fast can you get them?
Questions like these always surface even if you are an experienced yoga teacher or completing a 200 hours yoga teacher training course in Rishikesh.
So, let us break down and list a few myths - contrary to what social media and the internet glorifies; You can’t get abs by just practicing yoga once or twice.
While it is undoubtedly possible to practice multiple yoga asanas to get abs, it is definitely not a one-day task. Targeting your ab muscles would require strenuous yoga asana practice along with a controlled diet and proper yogic lifestyle and that is how most 200 hours yoga teacher training courses in Rishikesh are designed.
You would also need to mix and match the kind of yoga workout that you feel best targets your muscles and make sure that you do it in the correct order with correct postures. 200 hours yoga teacher training course in Rishikesh mainly focuses on how to create a better mind and body connection. So you can become self-dependent in the long run because yoga is a practice of perseverance.
Thus, to attain the best results, you must not miss or compromise on your yoga classes. Instead, they should be full of joy, rigour, and excitement. You should look forward to the time of the day when you will be getting onto that mat and start changing your life. Suppose you put all the above-mentioned points and ideas to the best of their use. In that case, it is possible to cut down on belly fat and slowly and steadily, in a matter of a few weeks to a few months, develop the abs depending on your body type, eating habits, lifestyle and genetics. The next big question-What to eat?
It’s not sufficient enough to just be determined to get those abs by regular yoga exercises if you are not following a proper diet and lifestyle.
No matter what you do, if you binge on junk and another unhealthy food post your yogic sessions, you will hardly see any visible changes in your body. Hence follows the next big question - What to eat?
Being honest to the spirit of Yogic culture, we’d recommend having the authentic all-time prevailing yogic Ayurveda diet. We at Adhiroha mainly specialise in this authentic style of food.
On a more general note,
Saying no to non-vegetarian food means saying no to cholesterol. And yes, to a well-toned physique. Ensure that you eat plenty of fruits and vegetables. Broccoli and spinach are high calcium choices. Favor chickpeas and other legumes. Substitute quinoa for rice if possible. Snack on nuts; they provide energy and a healthy source of fat. For essential fatty acids, reach for walnuts, flaxseeds, even flaxseed oil. Those tiny chia seeds are powerhouses of nutrients. Peanut butter is also a great source of energy. You may tank up on fruit juices and smoothies – good to add chia seeds to these.
