Hot Yoga Basics

Yoga is a form of exercise that has been growing in popularity for thepast decade, and studios across the country have been expanding on the types ofyoga programs they offer.  One of themore popular styles is hot yoga, which is done in a high-temperature room withhigh levels of humidity with the aim of improving breathing and mobility aswell.


The temperature in a room where a hot yoga class would be held is setbetween 90 to 105 degrees Fahrenheit, and the humidity level runs upwards of 40percent.  Performing yoga postures is adifficult practice, but adding this element of heat and humidity not onlyincreases the physical difficulty, but mental difficulty as well.


The body is forced to remain connected to the mind to hold the postures,and some participants experience enhanced flexibility allowing them to easilymove into different stretches and poses that they would normally be unable toaccomplish.  Psychologically, this isrewarding for a person’s confidence levels and improves their knowledge of whattheir body can really accomplish.


Some worry that the practice isn’t safe, but experts say as long asparticipants consume plenty of water during the class and leave if they beginto experience dizziness or other types of physical instability that hot yoga issafe for all fitness levels.  Newparticipants should be aware that it can take up to 10-14 days to acclimate toexercising in this type of heat, so give the body time to adjust and be sure tohydrate properly before and after class.


If a person is looking to add some heat to their workout, a hot yogaclass would be an excellent challenge to incorporate into an exerciseregimen.  It’s physically and mentallychallenging, and can offer long term cardiorespiratory and muscularrewards.
