Health is like the flowing water of a river, always fresh and pure, in a constant state of flux. Humans are a combination of the senses of perception, the organs of action, the mind, the intelligence, the inner consciousness, and the conscience. Each of these is worked on by the practice of yoga. Yoga asanas help to ensure an even distribution of bio-energy, or life-force, which brings the mind to a state of calm.

A practitioner of yoga faces life not as a victim, but as a master in control of his or her life situations, circumstances, and environment. Asanas balance the respiratory, circulatory, ,hormonal digestive, excreatory and reproductive systems perfectly.

The equilibrium in the body then brings mental peace and enhances intellectual clarity. Obesity is medically defined as a condition where your body mass index BMI is higher than 30.
