I have been asked this many times:

"can I lose weight doing yoga?"

Short answer is yes. Absolutely. 

In fact, I lost about 6 lbs in a month or so when I first started way back in the early 2000's...and for someone who is only 5'1.5", that is LOT!

Like, A. LOT. A LOT ALOT A LOT.

(see p.s. at the bottom...)

But guess what...there are things you need to consider.

1-How a yoga practice can help you "lay aside the weight" (Hebrews 12:1)

2-Consistency/Frequency of Practice

3-Type or Style of Yoga being practiced
