    I have a full 5′ x 15′ storage shed that is completely full with furniture and boxes. I need to move it across country and am trying to get a weight estimate to give to the moving companies. I really don’t like giving the info: 1 queen bed; 1 dresser; 1 sectional couch; etc.

    If not, is there a calculator online that would give me a weight estimate?

    Yoga raises your metabolism all day long, because it builds muscle at the same time it’s burning calories. You WOULD sweat if you did this practice in a warm room, and definitely in my classes;) xoSadie

  13. I love the way you incorporate more movement in the Sun Salutation. I used to practice yoga a few years ago & want to begin again, but this fantastic instructor I used to go to has unfortunately moved away.
    I want to lose some extra weight & I think I’m going to use the vids you’ve posted on YT. My question is: can I do this 4 part weight-loss video 5 times a week, or is that too much?

  14. StarGirl8603 says:

When i was 15 i had a great body, but then i started to increase weight(maybe because i changed the city,the school and the stress helped me to increase these weight..) and now i have to lose 10 kilograms to have a great body again. I think that the yoga is the best way to lose weight, so can u tell me which one of your videos to do,how often and am i do some diet? Thanks in advance! /sorry if there are mistakes in the comment, but my english is not very good/ 🙂

  16. ddeezziirree1 says:

    idk if my posts are going on 🙁
    but i was just wondering how many colories does this power half hour yoga burn, a weight 110pounds thanks:)

  17. alassiel123 says:

    this workout is great, however, i cant do it anymore! my muscles have become totally lethargic and i lack all energy to hold the poses. to begin with, i did yoga 5 times a week, for just 20 mins, then dropped down to 3 times a week doing 30 mins slots, but now i just cant do any of it! is there a reason why or am i doing something wrong? i would have thought it would have got easier, lol. thank you for posting though!

  18. Hi Sadie –
    I started this today and really like it and hope I can build up to the full hour soon. But I also have a more mellow yoga video that I’ve used that is super opening and relaxing, but doesn’t push me in the core nearly as much. I know you say to do yoga 3-4 times/week, but is it okay to alternate days between this powerful yoga and my other more relaxing yoga? They seem like they would go well together if you didn’t think it was too much yoga. I’m still a bit of a beginner. Thanks!!

  19. Aliceinsane6 says:

    sadienardini!! I’ve never done yoga. You think is a good idea to start through the excercises on your videos? Sorry for my English my native language is Spanish. Thanx!
