The benefits of hot room
Hot yoga assists in relieving stress and building inner confidence. The endorphin rush you receive after completing 60- to 90-minute hot yoga session will leave you feeling like there’s nothing you can’t achieve physically or mentally.
Your heart rate will increase when activity is done in a heated room which creates increased cardiovascular activity and will cause you to burn more calories quicker. Additionally, the heat increases metabolism levels and speeds up the breakdown of glucose and fatty acids. This helps to tone your body and lose weight. The result is the body will increase the ability to burn fat and increase metabolism.
Practicing yoga in a heated room stimulates the lymphatic system which is responsible for releasing out the toxins from your system. This release of toxins rids your body of harmful substances and makes it healthier. The hot and humid room makes your body sweat, which promotes detoxification and elimination through the skin, the body’s largest organ. Your capillaries will dilate in the heat oxygenating the tissues, muscles, glands and organs and helping in the removal of waste products.
While the practice may appear to be just physical activity, it is also a form of meditation. The hot environment demands a sharpening of your mental focus, concentration and determination during class.
Check with your doctor
If you have any past or present injuries or health concerns, such as surgeries, diabetes, cardiovascular or respiratory disease, or a history of heat-related illness, make sure to get your doctor’s OK and opinion before practicing hot yoga.
