If you're looking for a workout that blends ballet, yoga, cardio dance and meditation, Yoga Booty Ballet is for you. The Yoga Booty Ballet Classic is a set of three DVDs produced by the fitness company, Beachbody, that are used in combination with the Goddess Guide, Beachbody Squishy Ball and 7 Day Rapid Results Diet. Yoga Booty Ballet, Ab and Butt Makeover is a series of five DVDs utilizing dance, yoga, and strengthening techniques to tone the butt and abs.

Variations of the program are also taught by instructors in specific gyms and studios across the country. The calories burned in these workouts isn't set -- it depends on your size, intensity and the time you spend doing the workouts. You can only estimate how much energy you expend as you dance, bend and sweat.

Calories

The number of calories burned during an activity depends on several factors, including your sex, age, physical fitness and weight. Each person burns a different amount depending on her body and the amount of effort.

Physical activity also increases the body's basal metabolic rate, so in addition to the calories burned during the activity, the body will burn additional calories throughout the day. Use an online calculators or phone app that factor in your weight, type of exercise and the time spent doing the exercise to give you a rough estimate the number of calories you burn. Often these won't specifically list "Yoga Booty Ballet," but you can use calisthenics, Pilates, low-impact aerobics or yoga to get an approximation.

Classic

The Quickstart DVD is a 10-minute workout with basic moves, similar to low-impact aerobics or dancing; it burns approximately 65 calories if you weigh 150 pounds, according to the Health Status online calorie calculator.

Total Toning Basics is a 45-minute video that includes strengthening and sculpting moves with dance and will burn approximately 300 calories for people who weigh 150 pounds. The Advanced Abs and Booty DVD is 60 minutes of dance moves targeted at the abs and butt and will burn approximately 400 calories at that same weight.
