Here’s How to Kick Up Your Yoga Routine

Love yoga but looking to make it more intense? It may be as simple as adding some new poses to your routine. Dr. Enette Larson-Meyer, yoga instructor and metabolic energy researcher at the University of Wyoming, told the Huffington Post that certain yoga poses may count as moderate-intensity exercise. Larson-Meyer reviewed research investigating the amount of energy burned while performing 37 common yoga poses. While most of the poses could be categorized as light-intensity exercise, she found that four advanced poses fell into the moderate-intensity category, specifically: Dandayamana-Janushirasana (standing head to knee); Dandayamana-Dhanurasana (standing bow); Trikanasana (triangle pose); and Tuladandasana (balancing stick). In addition to these specific poses, Larson-Meyer also recommends the following to get the most intensity out of your yoga routine:

  • Try to incorporate more standing and balancing poses.
  • Add in quicker movements when transitioning to different poses.
  • Practice, practice, practice. It seems that experienced practitioners expend more energy than beginners, likely because they know how to deepen the poses to make them harder.

Of course, it’s always a good idea to seek out guidance to make sure you are doing any pose safely. Also, keep in mind that yoga has other benefits besides being a possible source of moderate-intensity exercise—for example, it can have a relaxing effect that may make even the lighter-intensity poses worth it all on their own.
