Why hot yoga?
Wondering why Hot Yoga is so good for you, or different from your normal Yoga session? Here are the top reasons that make Hot Yoga the perfect accompaniment to your wellbeing regime.
It makes you more flexible
Hot temperatures and high humidity make your muscles more pliable and make it easier for your muscles to stretch. This means you can increase your muscles range of motion and stretch deeper within each pose. You will find this having benefits to you flexibility in the session itself but also in the rest of your workouts.
It is a cardio workout
To help your body manage the heat and therefore keep your skin cool you will experience an increased heart rate from traditional Yoga. This means you get a good workout while working on your flex.
It can reduce your stress
Whilst regular Yoga also has this benefit the increased heat causes you to focus on your breathing. Deep breathing is a fundamental part of relaxation and relieving your stress.
It increases lung capacity
Deeper breathing than normal means your lung will expand more than they usually do. This causes more oxygen to reach your blood. Over time this can help with your overall lung capacity.
It burns calories
Any exercise that increases your heart rate will increase your calorie burn, so Hot Yoga is no different. Some studies report women can burn a few hundred calories per session. We'll be testing out these theories when the classes start.
Tips before hot yoga
Drink water before, after, and during class.
In a hot class, hydration is important. It is best to hydrate before and after the practice to prepare and replenish the water you lose.
Water with electrolytes can also aide recovery as electrolytes are lost when you sweat.
Don't come to a class on an empty stomach.
- We recommend having a small snack beforehand, such as a banana. Try to avoid eating big meals just before or arriving with an empty stomach.
Be aware that exercise in any hot room or weather can cause illness.
- Exercising in a hot environment can cause you to feel unwell, leave the room and cool down if you start to feel dizzy or weak or nauseous.
Seek advice beforehand.
In some cases, a hot class can exacerbate injuries, heat sensitives, and chronic illnesses.
Let your instructor know about any health concerns before class, and if you're unsure about whether you can practice hot yoga, check with your doctor.
If it's your first time doing hot yoga, try to ease yourself into it, and don't do too much at once.
We recommend one class per week to feel the benefits.
