A REVIEW: ROLE OF YOGA AND PHYSICAL EXERCISE IN LIFESTYLE DISORDERS – OBESITY

*Vd. Poonam Vikram Dound, Vd. Shital O. Chavan and Vd. Yeshwant R. Patil

ABSTRACT

Overweight and obesity are rapidly increasing in countries like India. WHO guidelines were used to define overweight- BMI >23kg/m2 but <25kg/m2, generalized obesity >25kg/m2. The simplest explaination for obesity is based on food intake i.e. intake of high calories and wrong life style i.e. no exercise or work to burn enough calories. Because of these reasons excess calories get converted to body fat. The central or general obesity is one of the cause for life style disorders like DM, Hypertension and cardiac diseases. Yogic management plays preventive as well as curative role in the management of Obesity. It is based on controlled and balanced diet, yoga postures or Asanas and breathing techniques. Pranayama, Yoga Asnas and physical exercises can give relief to obese people and can prevent the overweight people from obesity and its related metabolic diseases.

Keywords: Obesity, BMI, Yoga, Physical exercises.
