6 Benefit of Infrared Heating During Hot Yoga

Hot Yoga Inc at Mill Creek uses a unique Infrared heating system to yogis during Hot Yoga classes. There are numerous benefits of incorporating infrared heating into hot yoga classes. Infrared heating utilizes invisible, low-frequency waves to gently heat the body from within. Here are the top 6 advantages Infrared Heating offers during a typical Hot Yoga class. 

Deep Tissue Penetration: Infrared heat penetrates deep into the body, reaching muscles, joints, and tissues. This deep penetration helps to enhance flexibility and mobility by loosening tight muscles and promoting greater range of motion during yoga poses. Because you are able to go deeper in the postures you are able to maximize your yoga experience and its benefits on your body, allowing you to advance your strength and practice with each class. 

Detoxification: Sweating is a natural process that helps to eliminate toxins from the body. FAR infrared heat induces profuse sweating, allowing for a more thorough detoxification compared to traditional heating methods. Don’t worry about wiping away the sweat! It’s doing its job of keeping you cool during the hot class as well as eliminating toxins through the skin. This helps to cleanse the skin, eliminate heavy metals, and promote overall well-being.

Improved Circulation: The heat generated by infrared panels increases blood flow and circulation throughout the body. This enhanced circulation delivers more oxygen and nutrients to muscles and tissues, promoting faster recovery and reducing the risk of injury. Increased blood circulation greatly enhances your practice, allowing your body to feel stronger and balanced during a Hot Yoga class. 

Enhanced Relaxation: FAR infrared heating creates a gentle, soothing warmth that helps to relax both the body and mind. Like laying on a sunny beach during the summer, this can lead to a deeper state of relaxation and mindfulness during yoga practice, allowing participants to experience greater stress relief and mental clarity.

Calorie Burning: Those counting calories and trying to maximize the burn during any and every workout will love this. Hot yoga classes already offer a cardiovascular workout due to the elevated temperature, but infrared heating can further increase calorie expenditure. The body works harder to regulate its core temperature in response to the infrared heat, resulting in more calories burned during the yoga session.

Pain Relief: Infrared heat has been shown to provide relief from chronic pain conditions such as arthritis, fibromyalgia, and muscle soreness. Even if you are new to hot yoga and trying it as a way to manage back or neck pain, the infrared heat offers immediate relief. By increasing circulation and reducing inflammation, it can alleviate discomfort and improve overall comfort levels during and after a yoga practice.

Incorporating Infrared heating into our hot yoga classes at Hot Yoga Inc set our studio apart from other yoga studios that warm the yoga room with traditional heaters. Yogis can really feel the difference of this state of the art technology. Infrared heating can amplify the benefits of yoga practice, offering students a more effective and enjoyable experience. As always, it’s essential to ensure proper hydration and listen to your body’s signals during any heated yoga or exercise to avoid overheating or dehydration.
