What is Heated Yoga and Why Do We Use Heat?
At Yoga @ Cindy’s our dynamic heated flow classes are taught in a heated environment where the room is maintained at about 90 to 95 degrees with 40% to 60% humidity.
There are a lot of reasons why we choose to practice yoga in a heated room. The heat helps our bodies warm up (sort of like stretching before running) and makes it easier to get deeper into postures more safely. From our experience, the many benefits of practicing yoga asana are amplified by doing so in the heat. Sweating helps us clean out our systems, because toxins are carried to the surface of the skin in sweat, where they float magically away during the process of evaporation.
The heat also:
•Helps us burn fat more effectively by boosting metabolism and melting away water weight in sweat
•Dilates our capillaries to boost the “oxygenation” of all our cells — tissues, muscles, organs, etc.
•Boosts circulation and gets the heart rate up, at times rendering yoga an aerobic activity
•Enhances our immune system by slightly elevating the temperature of the body, which increases T-cell functioning
•Elevates the functioning of the nervous system and decreases anxiety by relaxing the body
Another subtle effect of the heat that you don’t always hear about is that it actually helps us concentrate and stay in the moment. The intensity of practicing in a warm room is hard to ignore, and (at least in our experience) this helps our minds wander less. Since yoga is about staying present in the moment, the heat can function as our ally in this way.
By far the biggest reason we practice yoga in a heated room?
Because it feels good! Sometimes the warmth can be intense, and the sweating messy, but it feels so, so wonderful to purify our bodies in a heated practice (and then go home and take a nice rinse). Heated yoga isn’t for everyone, but many people find that after an initial adjustment period they never want to go back to “cold” yoga.
