This calorie-zapping yoga routine will melt away pounds while sculpting every major muscle in your body.

Lose Weight with Yoga

How much can yoga really do for you? A lot. Cyndi Lee, founder of OM Yoga in New York City, has designed a total-body routine that is a mind and body booster. The workout is built around the classic sun salutation series, with challenging core and upper- and lower-body variations added for a fat-blasting twist. Do the entire sequence four to five times through (keep at it for an hour) and you'll burn off the calorie equivalent of a banana split while sculpting your arms, chest, abs, butt, and legs and improving your flexibility.

How it works: Start and finish each circuit with a sun salutation, a four-move series done forward and in reverse that is the foundation of the workout. Every time you do this main series, you'll add a challenging variation to keep your heart rate elevated while toning your whole body. Each sun salutation, plus all of our variations, should take about 15 minutes.

I love doing yoga! I find it to be a great way to work out and burn calories with friends and family members. One thing I am really looking forward to is the Together We Yoga event in San Francisco later this month. My roommates and I all plan to go out and do it together!
