Haylie Pomroy recommends that in Phase 3, you must do some stress-reducing activities like yoga, deep-breathing, massage or a sauna.
Yoga is one of the most effective physical exercises to lose weight. Yoga also has many positive effects like energy level boost, better sex life, pain reducer, sleep improvement and many more . However, practicing yoga needs proper training and right guidance. I highly recommend two of my favorite Yoga programs:
Yoga Burn (also known as “Her Yoga Secrets“) is a 12-week yoga program for women created by Zoe Bray Cotton. It uses a technique called Dynamic Sequencing to burn calories and fat, promoting healthy weight loss. Yoga Burn will lower stress levels and produce relaxation, unlike other programs.
Zoe divided the Yoga Burn system for women into 3 phases, with instructional videos to help you master the poses and sequences that will maximize the benefits of yoga:
Phase 1: The Foundational Flow Phase
This phase will help beginners understand the foundations of yoga, improving safety and efficacy. You will also build a strong mind-body link that will help you in later phases, and learn strategic poses to boost your metabolism.
Phase 2: The Transitional Flow Phase
In this phase, you’ll merge the poses in the first and second phases to create sequences, thereby enhancing your mood and eliminating problem areas.
Phase 3: The Mastery Flow Phase
Here, you’ll combine everything you learned in the first and second phases. The sequence in this phase will boost your metabolism and create feminine tone in your body.
The other yoga program I highly recommend is the Shapeshifter Yoga by Kris Fondran.
Kris Fondran is a Master of Exercise Science and has been teaching yoga for more than 12 years. No doubt she becomes one of the leading experts of yoga for fitness. Kris created a comprehensive system that contains several guides, videos and audios consisting all the needed steps to follow. The following are the contents included in Shapeshifter Yoga.
- Shapeshifter Yoga Manual
It contains everything you need to start losing weight and achieve the lifestyle you dream. It contains the proper way of stretching, its background, the right and wrong way upon performing the stretching.
- Yoga Pose Manual
Shapeshifter Yoga Pose Manual was carefully designed for a quick reference.

This guide will make it easier to stick with your practice. Simply print up these quick reference charts and post them in your training area.

- Follow Along Audio Files
If you don’t have desktop in your area and you are not fond of reading in print, then this is for you. You can load this on your iPod or any portable music device. Simply plug in your earphones and listen while following the routines just like listening to your personal coach.
Either one of these yoga programs can be included in your Phase 3 exercise. You can also have a massage or simply relax and meditate during Phase 3.
