When one hears the word “yoga”, automatically breathing and specific poses are at the forefront of everyone’s association with yoga. However, this has changed dramatically over the years with new styles and techniques that cater to each individual’s interests and personal takeaway.
What is Hot Yoga?
Hot yoga is performed in hot and humid conditions in order to cause the body to sweat profusely. With increased temperatures in the room, music and lighting ambiance to match, you can be sure to feel a total cleaning mentally and physically with hot yoga.
Hot yoga requires an individual to be ready to sweat and work hard, leaving the class feeling rejuvenated and cleansed. Hot yoga is beneficial for the following reasons:
- Strengthens the cardiovascular system
- Clears veins and arteries
- Diffuses impurities from the body
- Increases immune system function
- Decreased risk of injury
- Increased lung capacity
- Increased flexibility
- Benefits the lymphatic system
Hot yoga, albeit intense and profuse sweating is involved, is highly beneficial for the above-listed reasons, but also be prepared to join a group of motivated, like-minded individuals ready to work hard just like yourself.
What is Unheated Yoga?
Unheated yoga is best defined as traditional yoga without the added element of intensified heat to increase sweating during the class. Unheated yoga is designed to challenge each individual with strengthening, posturing, trust, playfulness and a community mindset.
Unheated yoga comes in a variety of levels and styles to cater to each individual’s authenticity and preferences. While the classes are unheated themselves, you can be sure to still work up a sweat as you move through the motions and poses.
Yoga, in general, is incredibly beneficial not only for the body but also the mind and spirit. Yoga practitioners have a different and authentic style that best suits them, and this is highly encouraged within our studio.
