Answer

  • 1 What is yoga?

    Yoga is an ancient art based on a harmonizing system of development for the body, mind and spirit.

    Many people think yoga is just stretching. While stretching is certainly involved, yoga is really about creating balance in the body through developing both strength and flexibility. This is done through the performance of poses or postures, each of which has specific physical benefits. The poses can be done quickly in succession, creating heat in the body through movement (vinyasa-style yoga) or more slowly to increase stamina and perfect alignment. The poses are a constant, but the approach to them varies depending on the tradition in which the teacher has trained.

    The continued practice of yoga will lead you to a sense of peace and well-being by making the body strong and flexible and improving respiratory, circulatory, digestive, and hormonal system functioning.

  • 2 What is hot yoga?

    Hot yoga is simply yoga practiced in a studio heated up to 36-38 degrees Celsius and 30-40% humidity. This heat cleanses the body and warms the muscles allowing a deeper stretch and more flexibility. The combination of heat and postures are specifically designed to give a comprehensive workout to the entire body. In each workout, muscles, ligaments and tendons are warmed and stretched. New students are often surprised at how fast their core strength is built and the amazing vibrant health that is rapidly achieved through a regular practice.

    Internal organs and glands are gently massaged and the heated room ensures that participants will sweat, helping them to flush toxins out of their system. In this intense cardiovascular workout, fresh, oxygenated blood is brought into to every part of the body, cleansing and rejuvenating the entire system.

    The result is a workout like no other. One that has been embraced by thousands of people ranging from sports enthusiasts, to people suffering ailments, to those who just want to stay fit.
