- Is yoga good for weight loss?
Yoga doesn't just change your mindset, it can transform the body too. But does yoga help you lose weight? In short, yes yoga can help you lose weight, but its benefits are far more wide-reaching than just reducing the number on your scales.
Yoga is a practice for the mind, body and spirit that originates from ancient India. It was used to promote a higher consciousness and train people to become aware of their own nature. Today, spirituality is still infused in yoga, but many also want to know: does yoga tone your body and is it an effective exercise for weight loss, too?
Let’s start with the basics: does yoga burn calories? Depending on the type of class you hit, you can use yoga to lose belly fat, burn calories and create a leaner physique. If you like crunching numbers, a standard hatha class can see you torch around 180 calories an hour, while power yoga burns around 600 calories per session.
So, is yoga good for weight loss? While yoga isn't thought of primarily as a weight loss class, it can help you get into shape. Holding poses engages your muscles and helps build strength, flexibility and balance. These movements also burn calories. If maximum calorie burn is your goal, opt for high-intensity Vinyasa classes over slow flow sessions. You can also incorporate yoga as part of your warm up or cool down routines to help improve your posture, muscle tone and mind-body connection.
