It would probably depend on the type of yoga - for instance Ashtanga yoga done intensely would pretty much be sustained cardio and definately strenth building too especially if the breathing is done correctly throughout as it generates a lot of internal body heat and gets the heart rate up.
I count it as cardio because that's where it's listed when I add it to my fitness tracker.
I would consider yoga more of stretching than anything else. It has its cardiovascular elements, but they're not sustained enough to count as cardio. Ditto for strength, although you'll certainly get stronger. The main point of yoga is flexibility and balance, both in your body and in your life, and i think that's the most important part of it in terms of weight loss - it's hard to go fill your stomach with junk food after a cleansing hour of yoga.

it is? i would of thought it was strength as it tones and strengthens your muscles, i will have to look into it a bit more, thanks for your reply x
I think it might be Cardio. But i'm not sure about that. It is classified in Cardio when you watch it on on demand and also when u buy it in the store.
I may not have been ON the biggest loser but i'm on the website. Check me out!
