How many calories does yoga burn?
Usually when people begin a new exercise they want to know what effect it will have and, if trying to lose weight, how many calories it will burn. It can be difficult to calculate calories burned.
There are several different kinds of yoga and the calories burned during each are different.
Different people will also burn different numbers of calories doing the same exercise depending the length of yoga class, their weight, fat percentage, and many other genetic differences.
You will see that there are great differences possible in calories burned with yoga.
For instance someone weighing 140lbs and performing Hatha yoga for 60 minutes would only burn around 177 calories while someone weighing 200 lbs would burn around 252 calories in the same time.
If they both did Hot yoga or Bikram (a specific type of hot yoga) for the same time the person weighing 140 lbs would burn around 447 calories and the one weighing 200 lbs woudl burn around 638 calories.
