Hot yoga classes are gaining in popularity, and for good reason. Heat is purifying, cleansing and even healing. Turning up the heat and allowing perspiration to flow freely is a tremendously powerful way to clear the mind as well as to cleanse the body. Many practitioners claim that a regular hot practice can increase chances of weight loss and build the immune system. People find that their metabolism becomes better regulated, pain may be alleviated, stress reduced and mental tension relieved.
The YogaSweat class will offer moderately high temperatures, ranging between 75 and 90 degrees, as well as encouraging students to honor their own body’s unique abilities and limitations. Hot yoga is not for everyone; if you have MS, rheumatoid arthritis, gout, cardiovascular issues, or any other condition that may be negatively affected by the heat, you may be better served by other style classes.
Come to class with a mat, a towel, a large water bottle and wearing light clothes (shorts and tank top). Be sure to drink plenty of fluids before class to avoid dehydration.
