Can Yoga Help You to Lose Weight?

The quick answer is, yes.

Any activity that keeps you focused on your goals will help you achieve results. And yoga is a great way to become mindful of your choices and aware of your body.

The science of weight loss is simple: you must burn more calories than you consume to lose weight. How many times have you heard that one liner? Like ANY other exercise program, to succeed at losing weight, you need to pair yoga with a healthy diet and lifestyle.

Please bear in mind there are many different types of yoga, some being much more vigorous (like power or vinyasa) than, say, yin or restorative. So obviously, if your intention is weight loss, and you need to burn maximum calories from your yoga practice, try a power yoga class. If it is heated you will drop water weight pretty instantly from all the sweat you will release.
