Yoga or pilates don't really raise your heart rate enough to be considered cardio exercise. Are they good for stretching, relaxation, and a little bit of strength? Absolutely. But because it doesn't really elevate your heart rate, there's no good way to get an accurate calorie count.

Hi there, first time posting here! I started my journey to get healthy. I have found I love love love yoga but am having problems finding an "accurate" number for calories burnt.

I have a 90 minutes beginner yoga class today, and while MyFitnessPal says I'm only gonna burn 287 calories, Sparkpeople says I will be burning 450+. Does anyone know of an accurate way to measure calories burnt during yoga/pilates? And if not, which app is more realistic at "guesstimating" the correct amount of calories burnt. I use both to cross reference everything.
