Why Hot Yoga?
Hot Yoga is a fun, dynamic and challenging workout for men and women that systematically works every muscle, ligament, tendon, organ, gland, cell and joint in the body. Hot Yoga teaches a variety of yoga that originated in Calcutta, India. There are certain postures (asanas) that are very unique to this lineage. There are also differences in terms of alignment and structure between this and other Yoga styles.
Yoga is a proven activity which synchronizes breath with movement to enhance muscle tone, flexibility and mental well being. The practice brings balance and enhances body systems to optimal health. Continued practice of Yoga creates a physical, mental and spiritual harmony that is enjoyed in all aspects of daily life.
Our 60 and 90-minute classes are based on traditional Hatha Yoga. Asanas (again, postures) consisting of a set series of stretches, poses, with breathing exercises are employed. This rewarding Hot Yoga builds strength throughout the body and also indulges your muscles, internal organs, detoxifies the body, and tones using slow, deliberate movements with the breath.
