Have you thought of a heart rate monitor that tells you how much you burn? you can't do more accurate

Tracking the calories expended in yoga is very difficult. I checked out a couple sites and one suggested you burn about 30% more calories in a Bikram class. One thing you could do to see the calories reflect your work is to multiply your time by 1.3. For instance if you do a 90 minutes class, enter 117 minutes for the time and the calories will be closer to what you expended. I would also contact Spark People about this because Bikram is a very specific length of time with specified moves and estimating the calories should not be difficult.

I checked my log and it looks like I get 271 calories for an hour of yoga, still not close.

I've been doing hot yoga for almost two months now and have not been able to figure out a way to track this correctly. I can obviously use the vinyasa selection, but as far as calories burned, I don't think it even comes close? Most folks can burn up to 600 calories or more in one 60 minute session, not sure I'm am up to that, but the 100-200 I get on here doesn't seem to fit. Does anyone have any suggestions? Or do I send a message to SparkPeople inquiring about adding another exercise?
