What is Hot Yoga?

  • Any style of yoga practiced in an intentionally heated room is Hot Yoga in our book. This would include Bikram Yoga, Forrest Yoga, Baptiste Yoga, and CorePower Yoga. In these classes, temperatures anywhere from 85 degrees to 105 degrees Fahrenheit are said to help you sweat out toxins while you work toward increased strength and flexibility.

  • This form of yoga is intensely physical and athletic. Ashtanga yogis practice a prescribed set of asanas, channel energy through the body using bandhas (locks), and concentrate on singular points using drishti (gaze) in asanas.
