Bikram Yoga

Any form of "hot yoga" will increase your heart rate and help you burn more calories, just due to the fact that you're in a heated room; Bikram classrooms, for example, are kept at 105 degrees Fahrenheit.

According to Bikram Yoga's official website, it is recommended that you take at least 10 Bikram classes to see the benefits of weight loss; after that, you should take class at least three times a week. This will help your digestion system to work more efficiently, and it will also help normalize your appetite and diminish unhealthy food cravings. [Source:]
