What yoga style is good for weight loss?

Yoga and Weight Loss

If you're looking to shed a few pounds it may not seem like yoga and weight loss naturally go hand in hand. However, there are certain styles of yoga that can benefit your reduction diet. More active styles such as Power yoga and Ashtanga yoga are excellent choices because they increase your metabolic rate through more rapid, sustained movement. Bikram yoga is similar in that working in a heated environment will help you sweat out toxins. All forms of yoga incorporate a healthy eating doctrine, so there's no going wrong with any one style.
