39-year-old mom, Rebecca Romijn, lost over 60 pounds after giving birth -- thanks to yoga!
She tells Fitness magazine:
"Everything I did before I got pregnant -- like Pilates, which I had done for about 14 years -- didn't work anymore. I had to find a completely different way to challenge my body. A friend suggested I try Bikram yoga. At first the idea of doing a 90-minute workout in a 105-degree room sounded like torture. But the sweating is exactly what I became addicted to. My body changed dramatically almost immediately. Within three classes I noticed less belly fat. My knees and legs are stronger than ever now; my arms have definition for the first time in my life; and my posture is much, much better. I also feel completely energized from all of the deep breathing. I leave class relieved of any anxiety I went in with, and the sweating and detoxifying make my skin feel great. I can't recommend it enough."
Namaste to that!
