Hot Yoga: The Benefits Are Huge but is It Right for You?

Hot Yoga is all the rage, and yeah, it is hot... literally. It's a more aggressive type of yoga held in a hot and humid studio. There are different forms of this yoga and the Bikram type is performed at 40% humidity and at 105 degrees. With the vigorous poses in the heat, your heart rate is raised while your muscle groups get some serious exercise.

 

The Tremendous Benefits:

  • They say that more than other forms of yoga, it can improve your flexibility
  • Your heart rate and metabolism increases which allows you to burn more calories
  • It can help to deliver your muscles more oxygenated blood
  • It can help with weight loss
  • It is a tremendous aid in relieving stress
  • It can work to detoxify your body
  • Less chance of physical injury because your muscles are heated
  • Exercising in the heat improves your immune system

 

So, Is it Right for You?

  • Well, you might want to avoid trying the intensity of Hot Yoga if...
  • If you're intolerant to heat
  • If you dehydrate easily
  • If you've been diagnosed with heart disease.
  • But if the concept of Hot Yoga seems like something you'd love to give a go, just make sure you drink a lot of water beforehand and afterwards and get ready for a new and exciting kind of workout with a wealth of benefits.
