We encourage everyone to incorporate a yoga practice into their everyday lives. Heated Infrared yoga is a structured combination of postures pre-designed before each class to achieve a different outcome each time. Each movement is accompanied with a breath that promotes a moving meditation. The two breathing exercises with each posture stretches and strengthens the muscles. Hot yoga also stimulates the nervous system, glands and our organs. With breath, it creates movement of fresh oxygenated blood around the body that helps to restore and heal all of our systems to maintain our bodies in a constant state of mental and physical wellbeing.
The heating for hot yoga is made up of Far Infrared Ray (FIR) heating panels. FIR heat is a popular choice for hot yoga studios as it is a revolutionary form of thermal technology, which provides a safe and healthy heat for the practice of yoga.
