What Is Hot Yoga & It’s Benefits

hot yo studio, hot yoga, yo tips

What is hot yoga Hot yo studio kuala lumpurWhat is hot yoga?
It’s a series 26-50 yoga poses practiced in a hot room of 35-40 degrees Celcius with approximately 40% humidity. Typically each session will start with the most basic pose and gradually increase in difficulty. The poses build on each other so you will always leave feelings as if you had a workout. Having said that, hot yoga is easy enough for people of all skill levels to pick it up.

Five easy benefits of hot yoga :

  • Hot yoga is designed to work out all of your muscles. By all means, you will not build bulk but you will absolutely find yourself with well-toned muscles after a few weeks of hot yoga
  • the heat promotes sweating. As you may already know, sweating is in part a way for the body to purge itself of nasty toxins that keep your body from functioning at an optimal level
  • It is a great workout for your mind. Yoga breathing exercises regulate your parasympathetic nervous systems (PNS, responsible for rest and digest) to help you cope with and respond to daily life activities
  • Due to the activation of PNS, your body is better able to extract nutrients from the food you eat and more effectively eliminate toxins because of the increased blood circulation
  • The contraction and relaxation of the muscles and compression and decompression of the veins produces a pump effect of blood towards the heart. This prevents the deposition of cholesterol thus regulates and maintains the blood pressure.What is hot yoga Hot yo studio kuala lumpur
    How is yoga different to other aerobic activities?
    People of all shapes, sizes, ages and abilities can do yoga and adapt it to suit your individual strength, ability and needs. Yoga is not about striking a jaw-dropping pose nor it is a religion (although it certainly happens). The word yoga itself means ‘to unite’ in Sanskrit so it is fair to say that yoga is a union of the mind, body and soul. In short, yoga is a physical practice to create balance and health within the body, and then maintain it.
