What Is Hot Yoga?

 

Hot Yoga is practicing yoga in a heated room. Originally it was done to simulate the atmospheric conditions in Calcutta, India where this lineage of yoga began. Today, we realize that the benefits of the heat during practice are great, here are a few to mention:

  • Your body burns fat more effectively.
  • The heat produces a fluid-like stretch which allows for a greater range of movement in joints, muscles, ligaments and other supporting structures of the body.
  • Capillaries will dilate in the heat which aids in effectively oxygenating the tissues, muscles, glands and organs to aid in the removal of toxins.
  • Your metabolism speeds up the breakdown of glucose and fatty acids
  • Your muscles and connective tissue become more elastic which allows for greater flexibility with less chance of injury during exercise.
  • The skin, the body’s largest organ dextoxifies through sweating

The room similates the body during fever when fighting infection; the body temperature rises then T-cell’s from the lymphatic system are called to action; this improves our immune system. Yoga helps to be the “heart” of the lymphatic system moving lymphatic fluids throughout the body to fight infection, fungus, removal of cancerous cells; this is especiallly true during inversions.
