“Yoga for Weight Loss” is part of Saagara’s new series of apps for various ailments. Combining the simplicity of “Core Yoga” with traditionally therapeutic yoga poses, we’ve constructed an app aimed solely at helping users manage their weight.
While dieting has been shown to reduce visceral fat, exercise is essential for burning subcutaneous fat stores (those that cause belly and thigh fat). This app is designed to help you tone your abs, get in shape, and improve your overall health.
According to the yogic texts, excess fat must be converted to strength and energy for effective weight loss. “Yoga for Weight Loss” has incorporated specific exercises which mobilize the body’s fat reserves and turn them into usable energy. Regular practice of these exercises makes the body lean and healthy.
“Yoga for Weight Loss” draws upon traditional hatha yoga and was formulated by an expert in ancient yogic methods. The program guides you through several yoga poses while emphasizing correct breathing methods. As you become accustomed to the exercises, you can change the settings from beginner to intermediate to advanced, for a longer more effective session.
Yoga asanas and techniques included:
-Suryanamaskara A (Sun Salutation A)
-Suryanamaskara B (Salutation B) – advanced
-Trikonasana (Triangle Pose)
-Veerabhadrasana (Warrior Pose)
-Utkatasana (Chair Pose) – advanced
-Purvantanasana (Upward Plan Pose)
-Bhujangasana (Snake Pose) – intermediate
-Shalabhasana (Locust Pose) – intermediate
-Dhanurasana (Bow Pose) – intermediate
-Sarvangasana (Shoulder Stand)
-Ujjayee Panayama (Victorious Pranayama)
Users may want to first try our app "Core Yoga" which is better suited for beginners. After practicing "Core Yoga" for a few weeks, you should be able to comfortably practice "Yoga for Weight Loss”.
Optimized for latest iOS version.

Needs Voice Directions
I would really like this app if they would add voice directions so I'm not hurting my neck constantly looking at the screen to see what to do next. Because of this, this app was a waste of money!
App works well - Stunning, Simple and effective
No issues with sound - just don't have your device set to mute with slide switch on the side of your iPhone/iPad
This is by far the best yoga app I have used, no waiting to download videos etc. Stunning animation with clear vocals instructions as well to guide you. It's well structured for beginners and advanced yogis.
If you want complicated,difficult or an encyclopedia of yoga postures this is not the app for you. If you simply want a no hassle 10-15 min routine to lose weight using yoga this app is for you.
This app is great! I was kind of skeptical since it is an animation, but she is so easy to follow. Being new to yoga, I have no idea what any pose means, in this app there are definitions, and a "person" right there with you. It's like having a personal trainer, without the expense. And for results..... I have been doing it twice a day for two weeks now. I feel awesome (and so do my jean). I think I'm ready to move up a level. For differentiation I found Core Yoga, I'm going to mix that in next week. Wish me luck....bathing suit season is approaching fast!
