The Hot Yoga class is a powerful and nurturing practice for all levels, which facilitates safe, deep stretching and a detoxifying sweat. Following specific alignment and timing principles you will systematically work and rejuvenate your entire body, creating balance, strength and flexibility.
The far-infrared heat helps create a different kind of hot yoga. The body (rather than the air) is heated by far infrared waves. Coupled with yoga it makes the body feel hot, producing a detoxifying sweat at a more tolerable intensity than other hot yoga classes, leaving you refreshed with a healthy glow.
The Hot Yoga Hub studio is one of a handful of European studios that provides far-infrared heat.
Far-infrared heat differs from radiant heat in that the heat warms the body (not the air) providing for a breathable efficient therapeutic work out. This is because in addition to the far-infrared heat, humidity and oxygen levels are also controlled. Your experience is as close to practicing yoga outside on a hot summer day as is possible for an indoor space.
When you practice in this environment you get all the benefits of yoga boosted by all the benefits of infrared heat. Like yoga, far-infrared heat removes toxins, improves flexibility & joint mobility, promotes healing, reduces muscle stiffness and pain, decreases soreness & inflammation, increases circulation, improves skin conditions, promotes weight loss, enhances heart function, lowers blood pressure, reduces stress, and speeds recovery.
When you walk into a regular hot yoga studio, you really don't even need to move to sweat... you could just sit there and be sweating buckets, which means you aren't really working out at all! But the far-infrared heat works by using your body's energy to heat the room. This means that that sweat that is pouring off your body, is real sweat that you actually worked for.
Do you want to love hot yoga? Have you found that the forced heat in a hot yoga room just isn’t for you? Hot yoga with infrared heating may be just what you’re looking for!
