Your lifestyle is different from Celebrity lifestyle. Remember Kareena probably spends a major part of her day prancing and dancing around the sets burning calories and eats for her size zero.Yoga is an add-on workout - not the only workout for her. Also the calming effect of Yoga are great for anyone facing arclights all the time. Contrast this with your own lifestyle.I for example, spend the major part of the day on the chair,meditating on office files, and move significantly only during the designated exercise periods.I need exercise which would help me snap out of that sedentary mode-not an hour long session of holding poses.I would choose to do just as much Yoga as helps my mobility needs. Leave Obsession with Shape or magic moves;enjoy varied Workouts. All this talk of XL to XS seems to be a cheap ploy to feed on the inadequacies of people and make unscientific claims with the help of celebrity endorsements.Yoga is relaxing and great way to improve your range of motion,do make space for it in your fitness routine.But remember,the more varied your repertoire and the more you rotate between strength and cardio type activities to keep your body guessing,the more you will accelerate your fat loss goals.You will set yourself up for frustration if you think that following a magical sequence of Yogic poses will transform your body shape from XL to XS.
Psst: Most XS people I know can't even pick up their own toddlers over a flight of stairs.
