Benefits of Hot Yoga


  • Increased Flexibility – Yoga has positions that act upon the various joints of the body including those joints that are never really on the ‘radar screen’ let alone exercised.
  • Increased Lubrication (of the joints, ligaments and tendons) – Hot yoga poses massage and improve circulation to alleviate stiffness from under use or long hours of sitting or bending.
  • Increased Awareness – One of the far-reaching benefits of yoga is the uncanny sense of awareness that it develops in the practitioner of an impending health disorder or infection. This in turn enables the person to take pre-emptive corrective action.
  • Detoxification – By gently stretching muscles and joints as well as massaging the various organs, hot yoga ensures the optimum blood supply to various parts of the body. This helps in the flushing out of toxins from every nook and cranny as well as providing nourishment up to the last point. This leads to benefits such as delayed aging, energy and a remarkable zest for life.
  • Increased Muscle Tone – Muscles that have become flaccid, weak or saggy are stimulated repeatedly to shed excess flab and flaccidity.
  • Weight loss - controls and regulates metabolism.
  • Stress Release


Our greatest asset is health. A regular hot yoga practice not only improves cardiac and spinal health, it balances hormones that boost your metabolism and help you to get a good night's sleep. Unlike other forms of exercise that often lead to overuse or injury, the more you practice yoga, the stronger, leaner and more balanced you become.  Yoga is also an excellent complement to any sport or activity. Hot yoga in particular helps to speed the recovery process by improving circulation and flushing toxins and byproducts.  


Poor circulation and free radicals cause tissue oxygenation which leads to cell death, buildup of toxins and premature aging.  The good news is that the human body is between 50 - 70% water so adding energy in the form of heat during a hot yoga class will get those molecules moving and aid in the elimination of toxins!  The twists and bends in yoga as well as simply putting your head below your heart enable the body to break through blocked energy.
