Our expert says:
Honestly, I don't think it's teh best form of training for weight loss, though of course it is better than nothing. The problem with yoga is that it doesn't elevate the metabolic rate as much as cardio training (like running, cycling, aerobics, spinning etc.) would do. So while there is certainly a benefit, and I don't want to discourage you from doing it, you have to be aware that the most effective form of training for weight loss is going to be cardio training. The yoga is vital, hwoever, because it improves flexibility, and will help with toning quite a bit.
So perhaps what you need to consider is a combination of the two - yoga on some days, and cardio on others.
