It allows your body to experience something NEW; you wouldn’t usually give yourself a workout in 35 degrees of heat. Yes, Hot Yoga is a workout before you ask. Your muscles and circulatory system will be responding to this new environment and therefore you will be using more energy. Some styles of yoga emphasize the spiritual aspect, others the breathing element and some the yoga poses them self. Hot Yoga highlights ALL 3 of these allowing your mind to be fully present in the yoga practise.
you will find out in more detail about the benefits of Hot Yoga.
allows the body to remove any toxins from the body that are unwanted. Being in
a 40-degree heated room means the body will sweat and therefore these negative
toxins will be removed from the body.
leads nicely onto the circulatory system.
stimulation of circulation increases perspiration so helps eliminate toxins
through your skin’s pores, helping with acne. This leaves your skin GLOWING!!
this is where the workout really starts!…
non-heated Yoga our bodies are kept in a “normal” environment and therefore are
not put under the pressures of heat. We sweat to keep our bodies cool, to do
this we need to use more energy = burning calories.
is also classed as a cardio-vascular fitness as we are using the heart and
lungs to provide oxygen rich blood to the working muscle tissues. The muscles
have to then turn this oxygen rich blood into energy for movement.
you have just read, Hot Yoga is a workout and you ARE burning calories. Being
in a calorie deficit means weight loss can be achieved so therefore Hot Yoga
can help towards weight loss. As well as this Hot
Yoga can strengthen your muscles, help with endurance and of course
hot environment causes the muscles to relax and therefore makes it seem easier
to stretch further as those ligaments, joints and muscles have loosened. After
time the muscles will begin to get used to the positions that are used in yoga
which means your flexibility will increase. As well as this your overall
everyday posture will improve.
Hot Yoga can open up your muscle tissues to allow a deeper stretch, this can
really help with some injury recovery as you start to use the muscles again.
However always ask a doctor for advice for when to start back exercising after
Our minds are one of the most important parts of our body, and the most active. Anything we can do to help relax our mind can help decrease stress levels and also help us to get away from negative thoughts. In Hot Yoga our minds are completely taken away from the outside world as our concentration is solely on the class; each position, movement and breath. At the end of each class the meditation helps stop the spiral of negativity through training your thought pattern and mind to realize when the negativity begins; turning the negative to a positive, not only in the yoga class but in day to day life.
of the most important parts of Hot Yoga is being able to use your breath in the
hot environment. Your lung capacity will increase overtime as you learn
different Pranayamas (breathing exercises). Prana is your “life force energy”
and yamas means “the control of”; therefore, Pranayamas is how you control,
cultivate or modify the Prana in the body. There’s three main Pranayamas, deep,
fast and quiet. You will explore all three of these in Hot Yoga.

Kombucha is a fermented drink made from sweetened tea and a specific culture known as a scoby. Scoby stands for ‘symbiotic culture of bacteria and yeasts’. The bacteria and yeasts convert the sugar into ethanol and acetic acid. The acetic acid is what gives kombucha its distinctive sour taste.
