Shapeshifter Yoga Key Product Details
Shapeshifter Yoga, in its very core, is basically a modified Yoga program. It’s modified in a sense that it is your typical Yoga program with a more focused fat-burning and body-shaping component grounded on scientific testing and measurements. That way, burning fat and consuming calories using this Yoga program becomes a precise and effective endeavor.
Shapeshifter Yoga is the brainchild of Kristine Fondran (or more commonly Kris Fondran). Kris has a Masters in Exercise Science while having several Yoga accreditations and certifications from notable Yoga systems and institutes worldwide including Yoga Alliance and Satyananda Yoga. She and her program have also been featured in popular media that includes Cosmopolitan magazine and Shape magazine; just to name a few. These impressive credentials establish Kris as one of the top Yoga instructors around.
As for the product, Shapeshifter Yoga is separated into two routines – Shapeshifter Yoga and Shapeshifter Flow. You’ll start off with the main Shapeshifter Yoga routine for the first 4 to 6 weeks (done 3 times a week) to develop your posture and flexibility in preparation for the more advanced (and harder) Shapeshifter Flow poses.
Once you’re through with 4 to 6 weeks of basic poses you can then proceed to doing Shapeshifter Flow poses. You do Shapeshifter Flow on top of the main Shapeshifter Yoga to form your regular routine. However, if time is tight, you can just do Shapeshifter Flow poses for that particular session.
A highlight of the program is Kris’ focus on the difference between a session that “hurts so good” against one that “just plain hurts.” Yoga is a tough exercise (despite what ill-informed hardcore fitness buffs or Yoga critics who haven’t tried it would have you believe) and doing the stretches correctly does give a certain amount of discomfort. Proper form and feedback on what you can expect to feel with each pose are detailed throughout the program so that you can execute correctly and get the full benefit of this Yoga exercise without hurting yourself.
However, the best part of the program is still the Yoga routines themselves. Each Yoga pose is detailed with text instructions and image illustrations. On top of that, there are demonstration videos for each pose which comes in very handy. Kris also created videos wherein she demonstrates the whole sessions of the Shapeshifter Yoga and Shapeshifter Flow routine and you can simply follow-along this virtual Yoga class.

Our Shapeshifter Yoga Review Verdict
Shapeshifter Yoga is an excellent Yoga program and serves as a great introduction point for those who want to try Yoga out without committing too much resource on Yoga club memberships, classes, and equipments; at least at the beginning. It’s a solid Yoga program with a weight-losing, fat-burning, and body-shaping element included; fitting Yoga veterans who want to level up their Yoga sessions. It does come with some minor flaws that can be easily overlooked due to the great value that this product offers. Keeping those points in mind, we give this program a perfect 5 out of 5 stars rating.
The main benefit provided by Shapeshifter Yoga is that it allows you to burn calories (not just lose water through sweat) that is equivalent to jogging; and this effect is substantiated by Kris herself (you can see pictures of her doing Shapeshifter Yoga routines while wearing biometric equipment). However, Yoga doesn’t put as much pressure on the joints (especially the knees) as jogging does. On top of that, Yoga (Shapeshifter Yoga is no exception) provides added health benefits to your mind and spirit. That’s a boatload of positives you should consider.
The chief flaw that we experienced with this program is that the support team is a bit snobbish. That is, at least in our case, they don’t seem to respond to inquiries coming from non-customers. Therefore, if you are a bit on the fence about purchasing the product and decide to contact them with your questions, don’t expect a response. However, once you are a customer, there’s an active support team that answers every inquiry promptly within your member’s dashboard.
Despite this, Shapeshifter Yoga still stands as a “can’t miss” product; more so if you are already a Yoga practitioner or aficionado. It can save you a lot of money if you decide to start doing Yoga at the convenience of your own home while providing the added benefit of scientifically-tested fat burning capabilities.
If Yoga is your fitness thing, the Shapeshifter Yoga program should definitely be a part of your virtual exercise library.
