Why Is It So Hot

Don't be afraid of the heat! Current students love this yoga, and new students fear this yoga for the same reason: ah, yes . . . the heat! The heat is not meant to make the class hard. It is a tool that helps the body's physiological and biochemical processes work exponentially more efficiently. The heat provides many benefits. Here are just a few:

  • Warms your muscles, allowing you to work deeper more safely.
  • Helps flood your blood and muscles with oxygen, allowing for better delivery of healing nutrients to the muscles and removal of waste.
  • Helps stimulate your lymphatic system (from lymphatic nodes) to remove waste products and remove "puffiness."
  • Helps improve your concentration, focus, and awareness of yourself. It's makes you "pay attention."
  • Helps improve your overall sense of well-being.
