- 10 Fat-Burning Yoga Poses. That's right, yoga isn't just a bunch of stretching—it can torch major calories! It builds muscle, which causes fat to melt, and can also increase your heart rate, which aids in boosting your metabolism. These poses are some of the best to burn calories.
- An hour-long bike ride at a leisurely 10 to 12 miles per hour, for example, burns about 256 calories. But crank up your effort to a race pace 16 to 20 mph and you'll torch around 773. A vigorous Spinning class on an indoor bike can burn nearly as many, about 741 calories an hour.
- Increase Your Power. The website HealthStatus reports that power yoga burns calories at a moderate rate. A 130-pound person who practices this type of yoga for 60 minutes burns about 304 calories, notes the website. A 180-pound person, however, burns about 421 calories during the same hour-long class.
