The Vinyasa Yoga Workout for a Fast Metabolism

Okay, okay, not everyone is into chanting and standing on their heads. But yoga is so, so much more than upside-down oms. Need proof? Studies show that yoga relieves back pain, reduces your risk of heart disease, improves your sex life, and boosts memory and brain function. One European Society of Cardiology review even concluded that yoga's cardiovascular benefits may be comparable to more traditional forms of cardio, like cycling. But if you're in it for the aesthetic advantages (we won't judge!), there are benefits for you, too: Yoga can help you build muscle, lose weight, and tone up from head to toe. That's a lot of awesome stuff.

You don't need to sign up for a pricey class to reap the rewards, either. Let Grokker yoga expert Andrew Sealy guide you through 30 minutes of standing poses that will strengthen and lengthen your muscles while giving your metabolism a kick in the asana—right in your living room.
