Bikram yoga for Weight Loss 

Bikram yoga as its alternate name suggests is yoga which is practiced in a heated room. It is said the humidity and heat help you in holding the poses better. The increased temperature as you guessed it, makes your body sweat profusely flushing out all the toxins.

How does it help
Bikram yoga involves practicing 26 Hatha Yoga poses at once at a 400'c temperature for 90 minutes. Hot yoga relieves the stress built up in your body and gives you a sense of a satisfactory workout. This feeling of satisfaction compels you to go back to it and practice it regularly. Regular hot yoga sessions make your body lean.

Here are 3 hot yoga poses that can help you lose weight
