Answer by willow song on wind
yoga will help you tone your legs and improve flexibilty. the calories really depend on the type of yoga you are doing . here’s an article i found hope it sheds some light for you! GOOD LUCK! Yoga does not necessarily conjure up the images of a sweat inducing and calorie burning workout the way that boot camp workouts tend to, but you should not be fooled on the slow poses and the deep breathing exercises. Both personal trainers and doctors are agreeing that yoga is capable of serious toning and trimming your body while simultaneously working your spirit and your mind into better shape to get you feeling healthier all over. Taking Yoga Beyond the Burn The calories that you can burn while practicing yoga can vary quite widely from between 180 and 360 in a single hour depending on what type of yoga you are actually practicing. Vinyasa yoga, Ashtanga yoga and other types of power yoga for example are capable of accelerating the calories that you burn by mixing the yoga routines up with kickboxing and dance in workouts known as yoga fusion. As with all types and styles of yoga practice, there is an even deeper benefit than simply burning calories however, which is that you are tuning into your own body. Suddenly you are actually going to be able to decipher the signals that your body is attempting to send you. You will understand when you are full, or when a certain food that you are eating is not properly digesting. You become so in tune with your body that you begin to understand what foods make you feel wonderful, and this helps you overcome poor eating in favor of healthier habits all around. In Some Things, Less Really is More The hardcore classes are not necessarily going to be the ones that help you. All types of yoga are helping with weight loss, including gentle yoga and restorative forms of yoga. They do this by kicking in on your parasympathetic nervous system which is the part of your body responsible for regulating your breathing, regulating your digestion and balancing your hormones. Yoga can help to slow you down emotionally and mentally so that you can work in distinguishing between the urgency to eat and emotional impulses capable of driving us toward eating in order to quell feelings. Slowing down can have an extremely helpful effect on our body and our ability to lose weight naturally and healthfully. There are some asanas or yoga poses that are capable of helping to burn fat, strengthen muscle and burn calories all at once. Yoga is capable of speeding your metabolism up by stimulating the body’s endocrine glands, and these are the glands that are responsible for regulating your metabolic rate. Examples of poses that are worth trying for trouble spots include shoulder stand, spinal twist, downward facing dog, fish pose and upward facing dog. All of these yoga asanas or poses are capable of having a tremendous impact on your body and your overall health.

    No, but constant exercise will. That acai berry thing won’t help get your legs skinny but your pocket will. Yoga is mainly helpful for relaxation and mind toning on stress.

    Yoga will definetly tone your legs and get rid of the flab. It could make them skinny depending on how active you are now, and how much yoga you will be doing.
    To get them slimmer faster, you should do some cardio as well. Bicycling, jogging, running, swimming, anything that gets that heart pounding fast.
