Anonymous asked: OMG yoga CAN burn a lot of calories and get your heart rate up if you do the right things and hold them long enough and push yourself. Have you never done yoga or something?!
“If you’re interested solely in weight loss, yoga is not the most effective physical activity because it burns relatively few calories. For example, a 150-lb. person burns 240 calories in one hour of typical yoga, according to MayoClinic.com. Variations in yoga exist, so if you plan to take a particular class, talk to the instructor about the calorie-burning benefits of that class. Typically, beginner yoga classes introduce you to basic stretches and poses but do not include aerobic exercise.”
Running can burn up to 800 per hour, so it’s essentially what I said.
