Workouts Are Heating up with Hot Yoga at The Village

Many of us are familiar with Yoga as a method of exercise, relaxation, and stretching. While Yoga may be a very widespread method of exercise, many individuals aren’t familiar with Hot Yoga or what it involves. Hot Yoga traditionally consists of a 60-to-90-minute program featuring a series of varying poses and is held in a studio set between 95°F and 105°F. Humidity in the studio is also increased to reach upwards of 40%.

For those who are trying Hot Yoga for the first time, you will want to make sure you are well hydrated. The first few times are going to be the most difficult, and if you ever experience dizziness or light-headedness be sure to take a break. Those who understand their limits and take the appropriate measures, especially when first starting out, are going to be best prepared for long-term success. Staying well hydrated throughout the day and not eating 2-3 hours before your hot yoga session will make your experience much more enjoyable.

Health Benefits of Hot Yoga:
Yoga and Hot Yoga are very different than your traditional workout routines, however, they offer a distinct set of benefits. Hot Yoga routines are set up to allow for natural progression as you continue through the program. Just like anything else, you are going to have to work at it and keep a consistent routine before you begin to see the benefits.

Hot Yoga is an amazing program for a number of different reasons. The heat allows for increased flexibility and boosts the calories you burn in a session. In turn, this also helps to improve circulation and increases blood flow to your limbs. Yoga in a hot room helps to flush out flush out toxins as well as boosting your metabolism.

What You Can Expect:
Hot Yoga first timers usually don’t know what to expect when they begin their journey. At Axiom, we make it as easy as possible for those new to Yoga (and Hot Yoga, especially) to jump in and get started. The biggest barrier for those who are new to Hot Yoga is simply a lack of understanding of what is involved.

If it is your first session, feel free to show up 15 minutes early and talk through the class with your instructor. As each instructor does things a little differently, this will help you get a feel for what to expect during your upcoming session.

What You'll Need:
Yoga Mat
Appropriate Clothing
Plenty of Water
Towel(s)
Positive Attitude!
