The Benefits of Hot Yoga
At its core hot yoga is simply an exceptional workout. There’s a great deal of dynamic stretching, engaging very specific muscles while pulling and pushing others – it improves strength, flexibility and balance.
Regular practice will also improve focus, stamina, and relieve stress. In fact, more and more physicians are realizing the virtues of yoga and recommending a regular yoga practice as part of a healthy lifestyle.
Hot yoga attracts a variety of people and all the poses are within the natural range of human motion. This does not mean the sequence is easy – it is challenging and rigorous yet realistic, so it fits the needs of a wide range of people.
Sports enthusiasts discover increased mobility, endurance, greater overall strength along with improved performance in competition with fewer aches and pains resulting from the focus required for the 60-90 minutes of hot yoga classes.
And, if you’re a desk jockey suffering with back and shoulder pain, headaches, high stress levels and poor focus, then opening up the spine and mind can help bring a balance back to your physical and mental health.
