BIKRAM YOGA

Health Benefits of Bikram yoga One of the biggest benefits of Hot Yoga is that the infrared heat directly warms muscles, improving flexibility and enabling a greater range of motion, which is ideal when practicing yoga and trying to get into difficult positions.With Hot Yoga the heat warms your joints and tendons as well your muscles, which helps to relive any aches and pains, such as arthritis or muscle soreness.The warmth from infrared heaters also helps to stimulate your blood flow and increase your blood vessel functioning, allowing for improved circulation, which in turn ameliorates the healing process of wounds, tissue trauma or minor injuries.In yoga Ujjayi breathing helps to strengthen our cardiovascular system, and in Hot Yoga this can be taken a step further as a rise in body temperature and the increase of blood flow serves to mimic the effects of a steady workout.The stimulation of blood is also beneficial for improving the texture and appearance of your skin; for example, the heat helps to increase collagen production, reduce pore size and fine lines, and improve skin elasticity.Finally, much like other forms of yoga, Hot Yoga is very effective for relieving stress, which is invaluable as it can noticeably improve your quality of sleep and overall well-being!
