Talking Yoga for weight loss

Yoga is not the best calorie burning activity. The most intense versions still burn less than activities like running, swimming and snowshoeing. However it promotes body awareness which is impt to weight control, helps with stress eating, and promotes a self care (and respect for the body) lifestyle. In addition it helps with strength and flexibility. See William Broad's "The Science of yoga" for scientific findings on yoga and weight loss.
