What is hot yoga ?
Hot yoga is simply practising yoga in a heated room.The heat allows you to go a little more deeply and safely into the postures, so you know you’re really warming up the muscles and you can really approach the postures from a safe place. It helps the body relax, improves breathing and focuses the mind, which develops better mental concentration.
At Awaken Hot yoga studio the intention is to follow the traditions of yoga but also to incorporate deeper faster paced classes for those who wish to push their practice further. The flow of our classes at Awaken Hot Yoga builds heat in the body, the heat not only makes this a cardiovascular practice, it also rids the body of toxins, cleanses the nervous system and brings the Samskara's ( negative patterns of emotions or behaviour) to the surface with an undeniable transparency. This is the beauty of hot yoga a dynamic shifter of energy, an unrivalled balancer of physical strengths, weaknesses and a powerful mirror to the inner self.
We all have different needs on why we choose to practice our yoga and on any given day our bodies and minds will have different responses and reactions from what life throws at us. Awaken Hot Yoga classes are designed to fit any given day and any given mood. From fundamental postures in warm yoga to faster paced sequences in hotflow, our classes will suit all levels of practice, empowering your mind body and spirit.
AHY's intention is to share our knowledge and passion for yoga, to inspire everyone to live an extraordinary life.
So why hot yoga ?
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.
