    Hiya everyone!
    I'm starting sixth form in September, and they have a yoga club I'm interested, but is a good way to lose weight? Or should I stick to the gym?


    Not really but it is very good for you- mobility is so undervalued. Loosing weight is calories in vs out so it's mostly diet but exercise can make it easier by burning more calories. Burning calories happens through movement, yoga doesn't involve moving that much- compare it to the same amount of time even doing a brisk walk, for example- so it's not particularly effective

    Okay, so it would be good to supplement with other exercises. Thanks!
