We are always humbled by stories from yogis who can turn something that people might perceive as negative, into something positive. Our latest #HYPsteryogi spotlight falls on Meg, who practices at our Oxford studio.

When I was 16, I was diagnosed with Scoliosis — in other words, my spine was curved. I went to a specialist and discovered that the degree of my curvature was just under 40 degrees. If my spine curve were to increase to 40 degrees or greater, back surgery was possible in my future. My doctor said the best thing I could do to avoid surgery was to try to halt any increases in curvature with exercise and core strengthening. The doctor suggested yoga.

As a yoga teacher, I am often asked how many calories are burned in a yoga class. This question is really difficult to answer because everyone’s body is composed of different amounts of muscle and fat. We all move and engage our bodies individually. Your body requires oxygen to burn calories, and since we all have different lung capacities, placing a universal number for caloric burn is virtually impossible. Long story short, there is no simple answer to that very complicated question.
