Will Hot YOGA help you lose weight?

    It's a simple question, and I'd be interested to read some points of view.

     HIIT is probably the closest thing we have to a 'magic pill'. (though it involves a whole lot more than swallowing a capsule) Not only does it surge your body to max intensity during the workout, but because your body is working so hard, your body can't deliver enough oxygen in 'the moment'.  Your muscles accumalate a 'debt' of oxygen that has to be repaid post-workout. This throws your body into a phase of fat burning for hours after you've done sweating, known as post-execrcise oxeygen consumption. Plus super intense circuits like this activate muscle building hormones.

    Now I enjoy four 60min sessions of Hot Bikram Yoga each week. In this practise, breathing is key, and we learn to breathe only through our nose. Now anyone reading this thinking, "Yoga...don't you just sit down and meditate" well...NO! It's moved on quite a bit from those early hedonistic days on the West Coast of the US in the 70's. Hot Yoga is practised in a room that has been heated to 104'F with 40% humidity, and use's 26 postures and two breathing exercises to give you a full body workout.

    So, knowing what we do about HIIT and Hot Yoga, 'will Yoga help you lose weight'? I'm asking this question because I've yet to see an overweight instructor/practitioner..
