There are all kinds of benefits associated with hot yoga. Improved flexibility, strength, breath, toning, you name it, yoga is probably good for it. Working in a heated room also elevates the heart rate, which makes the body work harder. It’s really great for people who want a more intense workout, those who want to develop strength and flexibility, and those who want to tone along with a cardiovascular workout.
Saying you’re not flexible enough to do yoga is like saying you are too hungry to eat. The first thing to remember is that flexibility is a product of yoga, not a prerequisite. Second, yoga is not solely about flexibility: it is also about strength and stability. Just as the tighter, more stable yoga student must learn to become more flexible, the already-flexible student must work to increase strength and stability.
Though you may see many yogis running around town with all the lavish yoga accoutrement, you don’t necessarily need that for your first yoga class. Here is a simple list of the 3 things you should be bringing to Studio:
Of course! Studio welcomes everyone from the devoted to the aspiring student. The great thing about yoga is that it can be as mild or intense as you make it, so go at your OM pace and enjoy! Everyone has to start somewhere, and what better place to start than Studio.
Classes range from ~70 degrees to 95 degrees plus. Check class descriptions for details.
While it may seem mellow compared to heavy lifting or HIIT workouts, hot yoga can be challenging for any fitness level. Each posture combines flexibility, strength and balance to work your whole body from your bones to your skin. With persistence, patience, and dedication, you can lose inches and develop muscle tone and strength that might never come from other forms of exercise.
We wouldn’t recommend eating a large meal right before you come to Studio, as you will be bending and twisting which usually doesn’t bode well on a full stomach. Fruits and vegetables are recommended as they are low in calories and have little to no fat, making them a light snack that won’t weigh you down or leave you feeling heavy. They contain carbohydrates and provide a natural source of sugar to give you the energy needed to perform and concentrate during class. Eat fruits and vegetables 1-2 hours before class starts.
When it comes to yoga consistency is key. Regular yoga sessions improve balance, posture, flexibility, strength, cardiovascular health, digestion, mental focus and concentration, and lower blood pressure and stress levels. But as a beginner it is important to listen to your body and not push too hard, to avoid injury. Studio classes provide the structure and support that a new student needs to learn proper alignment and pose sequences.
