Hot Yoga is a form of yoga practiced in temperatures well above room temperature. The range is usually somewhere between 85° to 125° F. By combining the already unparalleled benefits of yoga, Hot Yoga (technically Bikram Yoga) assists the body in sweating out toxins while letting you get even closer to the stretches. While you use the heat to sweat and detoxify impurities, you can focus closer on your deep breathing.
What is the final result? It all comes down to the removal of anxiety, a better physical strength, weight loss and, of course, detoxification of impurities.
Too many of us find it difficult to do even daily tasks around us without trouble. Whether it is our physical strength or the toxic thoughts in our mind, nothing is accomplished with complete satisfaction. Anxiety and stress cause this mental imbalance, and Bikram Yoga or Hot Yoga helps to clear the way for balance and less stress, both mentally and physically.
Another common problem is muscle and joint. In turn, these pains keep many from trying certain exercises to get in shape. Hot yoga can help these aches to go away. Yes, it is widely believed by students of Hot yoga that it can help alleviate, if not eliminate altogether, these aches and pains that interfere with day to day life.
One of the greatest dangers for exercise beginners is injuring themselves because they have yet to figure out when their body is warm enough to start the workout. Hot Yoga helps to avoid this worry, as the environment helps to warm up muscles to a point where they can be easily worked.
In addition, Hot Yoga also helps to strengthen your immune system. As we grow older our immune system gets weaker. You can combat this by adding Hot Yoga to your routine. The heat will stimulate a fever-like environment to stimulate white blood cells to fight viruses, and your body will raise the production of antibodies due to an increased production of interferon.
There you have it! Good luck becoming a Yoga warrior!
