Beginner’s Guide to Hot Yoga
On the surface, it’s pretty easy to guess that hot yoga is yoga being performed in hot (usually humid) conditions. And while it may have its root origins of inspiration with the local weather in India, the hot yoga atmosphere is usually achieved indoors.
So why turn up the heat? Well, the hot yoga environment actually warms up your muscles and allows for a safer, more intense workout. Plus, when you work up a good sweat, you’re getting rid of toxins through the pores of your skin, which has a cleansing effect on your body.
Hot yoga provides a great workout, and you can expect to improve your strength, balance, flexibility, and cardiovascular endurance, as well as potentially reaping some wonderful mental and spiritual benefits, too. With this many overall positives to gain, you owe it to yourself to give hot yoga a try.
And by giving it a try, you really should allow for several sessions at our SWEAT studio in Lexington, KY to give your body a chance to get into the swing and start feeling the life-changing effects of a great hot yoga workout.
You don’t have to be in amazing physical condition at the outset. We have classes for all different fitness levels. The important thing is to start practicing and be consistent in attending classes regularly. The more you do hot yoga, the more you’ll love it–and your body will love it, too!
