We all know yoga is an excellent way to increase flexibility, build muscle strength, and reduce stress, but did you know yoga can also be an effective tool for losing weight? This Yoga for Weight Loss class provides a great way to help you lose the extra weight, and since yoga works to positively alter your consciousness, you will more easily be able to keep it off.
This level 1-2 class incorporates poses designed to stimulate the thyroid gland and tone the abdomen, and also works to create heat in the body to help promote weight loss from the inside out. This class is an excellent addition to your weight loss plan!
This is the first of 3 in Dawnelle's Yoga For Weight Loss series.
Note: Dawnelle's style of teaching has and continues to evolve since this class was recorded. Please also try her more recent style of yoga, Qi Yoga.

Twisting Out Negativity and Doubt
Yoga Sculpt 1
Awesome class! Very clear instruction. None of the poses were difficult, but put together in this creative sequence, they were very challenging. I would consider myself about an intermediate yogi, and I definitely broke out into a sweat! My only complaint is the somewhat creepy music at the end.
Very nice class. Maybe a beginner class for yoga, but not for fitness, to my thinking. I am of better than average fitness an this was good work, got my HR to 160. I really liked Dawn s pace and instruction; I prefer when the instructor keeps the instruction coming and Dawn does. The only criticism of her would be that I don t recall any outs being given to the beginner, gentler reminders that child s pose is available when a break is needed, or what might be good modifications to relieve the burn if there is too much. I took this class as part of the weight loss series and the many compression poses are of great value to that end. I will take this class several times again. The noise at the end is awful, I almost suspect it is an anti-savasana message to get up and do something else.
I thought the class was good, challenging and learned how to engage the thyroid to assist with weight loss.
This is a good class that gets your heart pumping more than other styles, but is relatively easy to follow. It is very energising which is great.
I n a beginner and found this class challenging - but the right amount of challenge. Because the instructor takes you through the poses so many times, you do get the hang of the breath and the flow, which I enjoyed.
I really, really liked this class and will do again. Instructor does give lots of instructions all the way through so if don t like that, may be annoying. I like and need it because allows me to do the pose correctly and get max benefit from it. I didn t think it was fast paced once we starting flowing. Seemed medium to me. It was a little slow to start (I did 60 minute class) but I think that s because it s a beginner class. She pulled in Bikram poses often and I LOVED that. She is an excellent instructor not only teaching how to do Powse but the breath which is really the key to all of this. Only negative is the annoying music at end. Loud and not relaxing.
Brilliant class. Really annoying noises starting during spinal twists and they become even more distracting during shavasna, making it almost impossible to relax too, what a shame for Dawnella to ruin her otherwise beautifully flowing class.
Slow going at first, but stick with it. It gets good. The 20 minute option is awesome. No excuse not to do it.
The detailed instruction on how to get into some of the poses was great. The body heats up nicely and you move steadily through the poses with the breath.
A great workout, made me sweat a bit. Easy to follow and definitely one of my favorite classes I ve taken so far. I am hovering between beginner and intermediate, so this was perfect.
It is a great workout. It should state that it is a 30 min class since the length is 25 min. My interpretation of the length time would be "no more than" time stated.
Good workout, I felt it and was really hard to concertante on the breath and all the details by the end. I felt great after it. The only thing what is my fault I can t make the step in efficient, I could handle some tips as it occurs a lot in this flow.
Perfect level and cues for those new to yoga. Will definitely do it again.
This workout was fantastic! I am very new to yoga so I need to pause a lot and go to the pose guide but otherwise it was excellent I feel amazing.
This class is one of my favourite workout-yoga classes. Cueing is very clear, and the 45 min. is perfect. It s quite challenging, but just enough to feel accomplished afterwards and not overwhelmed. Highly recommended!
The audio version is very easy to follow! Great information on thyroid stimulation! Builds heat fast! Great class, thank you!
Unfortunately the sound kept mutin by 22 minutes. Very disappointed
Good work. I really liked the chin breathing exercise. I was sweating a bit by the end.
Nice class, but the music at the end is too loud and drowns out the teacher. The music is too edgy and does not promote relaxation at the end.
This is the Yoga Download I have stayed with. I want to lose weight and it is simply melting away with this class.
I started with the 45 min class and had to give up as I was exhausted but I persevered and am now doing the 60 min class with relative ease. That s an improvement over only a couple of days.
Dawnelle is wonderful and I feel challenged and capable as I keep up with her. I am only an intermediate /beginner but can manage this. Usually I do not like flow yoga as I find it hard to keep up but this is fine for me.
Am getting ready to move on soon to Yoga for Weight Loss 2.
I must give this class a 5. Honestly, she s great the flow was nice intensity excellent. I wanted to throw in the towel halfway through and I ve done some of the classes rated advanced so don t let the beginner class title fool you. Keep pressing on through you ll make it. WONDERFUL CLASS,!!!
This is a great class - don t let the "1" or "advanced beginner" level fool you - it IS a great workout! Out of the many yogadownload.com classes I have done, this ranks up near the top for me.
Dawnelle is awesome. Yes, this is a fast-paced class, but that s why it says intermediate.... it s GREAT!
Your body will definitely warm up and you will certainly feel it the day of and the next day. With that said, I don t LOVE this class because of the quick pace and maybe it is further than an "advanced beginner" class as it is promised. But with practice it becomes easier. Just don t be surprised if it moves along too quickly at first.
I liked this class for the following reasons. 1. Dawnelle gave good descriptions of her poses and even cued us to the next move. 2. This one included a video, which is better for beginners and visual learners 3. The poses flowed very naturally and felt good-no awkward transitions and balanced each other out. 4. I did this weight loss 1 as a warm up to the weight loss 2, which was a very good idea-even though they repeated each other, the weight loss 2 was more intense and faster paced.
There s a skip toward the end of the 30 minute class that drives me nuts -- but I love this. My body heat stays up for hours & I can just feel the excess weight melting off.
I liked how long we held the poses and the level of sweat generated (some but not ridiculous). I am in between intermediate and advanced levels of yoga--take note if you are actually a beginner.
My only complaints--I didn t like how rehearsed she sounded, but then again I am new to online classes. I was expecting more of a yoga-teacher-in-a-class-who-happened-to-be-taped thing. The other thing was the music. At the end, it sounded like something from a horror movie. It made me really uncomfortable.
An excellent workout, particularly loved the fish pose at the end which stretched my back out nicely to finish. Plenty of sweat, nice flow, not too complex, simple repetition helped with keeping one breath, one movement because you knew what was coming next. Poses held for the right amount of time - not too long.
This is not beginner level!!
Phew! Hot work - glad I was at home and could take my t-shirt off!! Really enjoyed it though and would certainly recommend. Thank you for leaving the music on for a few minutes of savasana - I m usually very bad for just jumping straight up, but the music made me lie for a while.
I love this class. It s simple poses, but the flow is fast enough to really get you sweating. I wouldn t call the 60 minute class beginner, but maybe the shorter versions are less intense.
Dawnelle is amazing! This is a vigorous and challenging class that had me sweating like the vinyasa classes at Sunstone. Nice Savasanah music as well. Can we get some of these classes with more upbeat yoga music as is played in the hot yoga studios?
Loved it! Great class with nice flow. Will definitely do again!
This is a great workout and i feel so much better after working through the poses. I find myself feeling so much better about life and my joints feel lubricated and it eases the pain of my arthritus.
This is a hard class! I m not sure if this is ideal for beginners in that it s very challenging; however, it makes sense and the poses aren t hard to understand. So, it s easy to understand, but hard to do. I really do like it, though. Once I do it, I feel like I can conquer anything. It is a good challenge and my favorite yogadownload that I m doing these days.
I really enjoyed this class - it was fun and challenging, however beware if you have any neck problems - the neck/chin compressions would most likely aggravate any existing problems pretty bad.
This is a great class! Your heart really gets pumping and you feel great after. I am an intermediate student and felt challenged by the intensity of the class. The cuing was great and I never felt lost during the class. Simply awesome!
