hot yoga benefits for yoga encinitas

The most significant benefits of yoga Encinitas are:

  • perfect for beginners
  • improved flexibility
  • weight loss,
  • stress reduction,
  • improved energy levels and
  • sense of wellbeing.

Sweating profusely aids detoxification via the body's largest organ of elimination, the skin. This greatly improves health and vitality by encouraging the body to remove waste and burn more calories. As the body is cleansed of toxins, the mind also becomes clearer as increased blood flow in the body in turn increases focus and concentration of the brain.

The heat and mild humidity create a "sauna-like" yoga experience which allows even the most inflexible, out of shape student to stretch more easily and safely. They help by loosening muscles to prevent injury. The warm tropical environment also encourages students to relax and breath more deeply. This helps conditions like asthma, or shallow chest breathing due to stress, injury, lack of sleep or overwork.

The Benefits of Hot Yoga

  • Your body burns fat more effectively – it is redistributed and used as energy during class. You will lose inches in a very short time. Up to 600 calories burned in a 60 minute Tropics hot class!
  • The heat allows for greater range of movement in joints, muscles, ligaments and other supporting structures of the body
  • Your capillaries dilate in the heat more effectively oxygenating tissues, muscles, glands, organs and helping remove waste products
  • Your metabolism speeds up the breakdown of glucose and fatty acids, lose weight faster
  • You benefit from willpower, self control, concentration and determination in this challenging environment
  • Your cardiovascular system gets a workout
  • Your muscles and connective tissue become more elastic and allow for greater flexibility with less chance of injury and faster recovery from injury
  • Sweating promotes detoxification and elimination through the skin – the body's largest eliminating organ
  • The nervous system function is greatly improved and messages are carried more efficiently to and from your brain
  • Your metabolism improves in your digestive system and in the body's cells (that is food in the gut and nutrients in the cells)
  • The added heat increases heart rate, which encourages the body to spend more energy (calories) in its efforts to stay cool during exercise.
