THESE ARE THE REASONS
TO START WITH HOT YOGA
Table of Contents
You feel zen
My first lesson in hot yoga was focused on your core and flexibility. You work on your balance and stability. Because you are focused on your breathing with every effort, it is a good way of relaxation. After the lesson, I had a satisfying and zen feeling.
You get positive energy
In addition to being relaxing, hot yoga also costs a lot of energy because you perform exercises in a warm room. I got especially positive energy from it because I was physically and mentally comfortable in my skin after the workout. It gave me the space to clear my head and train my muscles at the same time. I felt happy to continue the day.
You have had a good work-out
The next day I had severe muscle pain, which means that I had put my body to work properly.
A fun form of sport
For the non-athletes among us, I definitely recommend hot yoga. This way you can work on your killer body in a fun and relaxing way.
You have a moment for yourself
Because we are very busy all day and we have to do everything ourselves, I find a lesson in yoga the ultimate moment to take some time for yourself. You usually have to schedule a group class, so plan your ‘ time time ‘ and you can not ignore it.
Hot yoga helps …
Contributes to better breathing
During the lessons, you improve the control of your breathing that helps to use up to 100% of your lung capacity.
Contributes to a healthy mind
Some people experience heat as annoying or oppressive. By doing hot yoga you learn how to deal with heat, and how you change your mindset. It also brings peace to your head.
To the cleansing and softening of your skin
Because you sweat a lot, you dispose of a lot of waste products, this cleanses and softens your skin.
Contributes to a higher combustion
Because of the heat, your body needs more energy so you burn more.
TIPS BEFORE YOU START ON HOT YOGA
Drink plenty of water before and after class. Try to take small naps during the lesson.
Know your body before you start on hot yoga.
Watch your salt intake if you suffer from low blood pressure.
