Embrace the Heat. Enjoy the Burn.
Practiced in a warm environment, hot yoga offers all the benefits of traditional yoga and a few more. The added heat helps the body relax, improves breathing and flexibility, and increases cardio activity, which adds up to a pretty intense workout. But it’s worth it.
Relieve Stress: Yoga is a timeout for the brain while you focus on the body. It can help you find a sense of well-being in a hectic world.
Improve Focus: Holding yoga poses requires sustained concentration. A regular practice can help you gain tremendous focus and determination, not only in the studio but in your daily life.
Build Strength: Yoga can increase your muscle strength and stamina. Strong muscles contribute to overall health, supporting the skeletal system, your joints and the body’s organs. It’s low impact with a high payoff.
Increase Flexibility: Longer, leaner muscles not only look great, but they also contribute to your overall ability to move through the world with more comfort and less effort.

Control Breathing: Adequate oxygen supplies revitalize the body and mind and strengthen vitality. When you slow down and control the breath, you supply oxygen to your various organs more efficiently for improved function.
Boost Immunity & Healing: With regular practice, low impact hot yoga and its postures can help to heal old injuries and detoxify the body. Hot Yoga has been found to boost immunity and reduce symptoms of some conditions including diabetes, asthma, high blood pressure, depression, arthritis and obesity.
Enhance Cardio: Your heart works just as hard doing yoga in a heated room as it does on a run, especially when postures require balancing and contracting muscles at the same time. As a result, you can burn up to 1,000 calories during a 90-minute class.
