Why Yogis are Loving Hot Yoga Using Infrared Heating

Do you want to love beginners hot yoga? Who doesn't? Did you find that the forced heat at the old Johnston Rd. yoga room just wasn't for you? At our new location at 1560 George St. we've installed a state of the art FAR Infrared Heating system and it's exactly what you're looking for!

Infrared light is NOT ultraviolet light... in fact, it has an opposite effect of UV. It diminishes fine lines and wrinkles. It's the healthy light that allows plants to photosynthesize, or make energy to sustain and grow. Infrared light rays heat you from the inside... it's a deep penetrating heat that warms you, and not just the surrounding air. It's the ultimate detox.

Can't imagine being heated from within? Imagine practicing yoga outside on a clear and sunny afternoon, minus the sun in your eyes. Relaxed, content, and full of energy, right?
Let's see what practicing in a FIR (far infrared ray) yoga studio does for your body...

Reduce Pain and Inflammation

From arthritis and fibromyalgia to plain old muscle soreness, FIR can penetrate up to 3 inches into the body and under the skin, aiding in pain relief by improving blood circulation and enhancing the delivery of oxygen to soft tissue, which helps relax the muscles.
Smooth Skin

Infrared Heat light waves gradually repair skin damage over time. It minimizes fine lines and wrinkles, helps scars and burns, improves the skin's elasticity, and improves overall appearance of skin tone.

Healthy Heart

Along with strengthening our cardiovascular system through pranayama breathing, a rise in body temperature increases blood flow, which mimics the benefits of a passive cardiovascular workout and continues hours after your hot yoga practice!

Detox

Far infrared therapy is the best way to eliminate metals, chemicals, and toxins from the body. The FIR natural heating mechanism heats from the inside by raising the body temperature to create an "artificial fever." Studies have shown that in this state, cancer cell growth slows, and white blood cells (infection fighters) are produced.

Calorie Burn

Studies have shown that in a far infrared ray sauna, a moderately fit person can sweat one pound of sweat in one 30-minute session, which is the equivalent of running 2-3 miles. Not to worry – rehydration will restore the lost fluid.

In conclusion, far infrared yoga heals! In addition to the benefits above, yoga in an infrared headed room is comfortable, therapeutic, and safe. It is recommended that you attend 3 infrared heated classes per week for optimal benefits. Knowing you are going to soak up some far infrared rays is just another way to help keep a regular yoga practice and maintain a healthy lifestyle.
