Read below to find out why practicing in Infrared Heat is not only the best heat for Yoga but also the detoxifying effects it has on the body, mind, and spirit.
WHY PRACTICE IN THE HEAT?
Heat creates a detoxifying sweat which helps flush out toxins and metabolic waste from your body that are found in your blood and muscles. It helps to increase blood flow which allows fresh oxygen to be delivered to your muscles, organs, joints and glands. Practicing in an environment with Infrared heat takes yoga and barre to a new level. You will leave feeling euphoric and cleansed!
HOW DOES THE HEAT HELP HEAL INJURIES & STRENGTHEN THE BODY?
There are a handful of physical benefits that come from practicing in the heat:
It help to soften collagen around the joints, strengthening the heart and cardiovascular systems.
Speeds up the breakdown of glucose and fatty acids, rejuvenating the skin, and assisting in the removal of inflammatory free-radicals from the body.
Stimulates vasodilatation of peripheral blood vessels, allowing oxygen to joints and extremities. This helps relieve pain, speed up the healing process from an injury as well as reducing the time it takes the body to recover from an injury.
WHAT DOES THE HEAT DO FOR THE MIND?
Exercising in a heated environment challenges you to control thoughts and work on being present. It helps to keep you content amidst the continually changing conditions in life. Benefits include strengthening willpower, self-control, concentration and determination. Over time the body and mind will adjust, making heat feel like a “second home".”
