Not only is yoga great for improving your strength, flexibility, muscle tone and reducing stress, it`s also a great calorie burner. Consisting of a series of deep-breathing exercises and `poses` which are held for a set period of time, these can be adapted to suit any fitness level. A typical half hour session will burn around 200 calories.
And the great thing is you can do a yoga workout with working up too much of a sweat which is great if you are really pushed for time. If you want try yoga of greater intensity to burn even more calories, then consider options like Bikram Hot Yoga, Power Yoga or Zero Gravity yoga.
