Many celebrities have claimed yoga as the workout that works best for them, and more and more people are endorsing yoga. It works out the body as well as the mind, and although it doesn’t strain one as much as most workouts are known to, it can still aid in weight loss according to scientists. Varieties of yoga are taught, some meant to make you sweat more than others, like bikram yoga.

Yoga classes are held at most gyms, but you can visit studios that specialize in yoga like Yoga Shelter located at 1910 S. Rochester Road, Rochester Hills, MI 48307
