Vinyasa and power may not be the only forms of yoga that will get you closer to that long, lean, limber look.

By the end of the yearlong study, yogis who practiced at least once a month lost an average of about three pounds, nearly double the amount lost by those who only stretched. So if you don’t feel up for a more athletic yoga class, ease your way into a practice with a gentle one.
