Hot yoga therapy, a practice done in an intentionally heated environment of 42 degrees, helps to detoxify the organs and make the muscles more supple. It uses a sequence of gentle asanas, breathing techniques and meditation to stimulate and maintain optimum health. This class is geared towards -- but not limited to -- people with health conditions.
From constipation to back pain, low/high blood pressure to arthritis, hot yoga therapy helps aid students down a path of healing and transformation. In India, traditional naturopathic and ayurvedic doctors will prescribe yoga asanas and different breathing techniques as part of the patients' healing process. Yoga began as a healing and therapeutic tool for maintaining one’s health. When yoga is practiced with the intention of restoring and preserving one’s health, it becomes a very powerful tool in preventing problems and aiding recovery from both physical and mental ailments.
This class is suitable for just about everyone. People of all ages, abilities and levels are able to attend this class. However, it is contraindicated for pregnant woman due to the heated environment.
