This yoga workout for weight loss uses a circuit style format to get you sweating in 20-30 minutes. It’s a yoga workout designed for weight loss because it combines cardio, strength and flexibility all in one! Enjoy your yoga workout for weight loss.
These yoga circuits are one of my favorite workout styles because it’s such an enjoyable, bordering delicious, combo of stretching, strength and flowing with your body. You break a good sweat using just your bodyweight and you feel lengthened and loose afterwards. Hallelujah! Go at your own pace, tune-in to your body and flow through it.

Do each exercise for 50 seconds, with 10 seconds rest between each exercise. If you need more breaks, take them. Do 2-3 rounds with a 1 -2 minute rest between rounds. Or, you can count reps. I’d recommend 6 – 10 per exercise based on fitness level.
