So I have shown you some different yoga poses. This is a post about a type of yoga, hot yoga. Hot yoga is usually done in a room heated to about 40 degrees celsius or 105 fahrenheit. Doing yoga at this temperature causes the body to sweat and essentially detoxify. The heat also allows for capillaries to dilate, which allows for increased absorption of oxygen. More oxygen allows better blood circulation and cardiovascular activity by creating more lung capacity. It is great for those aiming for weight loss as well as curing many health problems by strengthening the immune system. I started hot yoga just over a year ago, it is intense but will leave you feeling great after. A tip from personal experience, don't ware cotton clothing to class.
