It’s the middle of January and nearly nine people out of 10 have already given up their New Year’s fitness resolution, according to a University College London survey.
Sweat Studios in Milton Keynes and Buckingham is encouraging people to stick to it and give people hope by saying that it takes less than two yoga sessions to burn off the entire Christmas dinner and the trimmings, trainers have calculated.
Recent figures show that, a Christmas turkey roast is around 965 calories. Just one hour of yoga can burn off up to a staggering 600 calories, which means you could burn off the whole lot off by doing just over 1.5 hours of yoga!
“People start January with all the best intentions but many find that either a gym is intimidating or it’s too cold and wet outside for a run. People often mistake all forms of yoga as simply a place to breathe deeply or make funny shapes. At Sweat Studios, we have tailored programmes to make it possible to burn up to 600 calories in one session, which is more than most people do in a gym session,” Sweat Studios owner Kirsty Lowe said
An active yoga class can burn calories, tone and build strength in the same way as a gym workout. Where would you rather be tackling your turkey tummy, Christmas pudding paunch or gingerbread muffin top?!

Yoga has many benefits alongside weight management, ranging from stress reduction and better sleep, to improved circulation, brain function and posture.

Sweat Studios owner Kirsty Lowe said: “If you’re in the ‘new year, new me’ mindset, give yoga a go – it’s a lot easier to stick at than 6am runs in the dark and cold! We always get lots of interest in January and you can see why. Yoga will change your life and there’s no better time to start than at the beginning of a fresh, new year!”
