Hot yoga is great for you physically and involves a lot of core elements, including flexibility, weight loss, building muscles, strengthening and toning.
We heat the Hotpods to 37 degrees, this is what we consider to be the optimum heat to aid flexibility (by warming up the muscles) and for increasing the heart rate. We wanted to avoid extreme heat that can make people feel faint. We don’t believe there to be any benefit from greater heat.
Hotpod Yoga combines an aerobic work-out with heat and toning and stretching the muscles back to how they should be, working to improve body mechanics in the unique womblike, de-stress environment of the Hotpod. Better body mechanics mean your body works the way it should do.
The idea is to focus on exactly the sensation that is happening in your body at the time – stretching and strengthening – and to use your breathing as a tool to 1) keep you focused on what you are doing 2) help the muscles relax so you can go a little deeper. As well as burning up to 700 calories per class, there are numeroushealth benefits to hot yoga. The heat helps you to reach levels of personal flexibility, your heart works harder, and working up a sweat will help your muscles, organs and glands to function properly. Hot yoga is also known to help you breathe properly, as well as reducing symptoms of conditions such as asthma, high blood pressure, depression, arthritis and obesity.
