As important as it is to take care of your body and physical health, your mental health is just as crucial to your overall well being. Every day, we experience stress caused by work, a social life and finances, all of which can be detrimental to your physical health. Because of this, we here at Kennedy Fitness: A Jefferson Health Affiliate, are dedicated to helping our members improve BOTH their mental health and their physical health. One of the popular methods of creating a mind body connection and reducing stress is Hot Yoga.
I’ve heard the term hot yoga before, but what is it?
Hot yoga, which has exploded in popularity in recent years, is a challenging form of yoga that is performed in a studio hotter than 100°F with the humidity level of 40%. This form of yoga is said to improve cardiovascular health while cleansing the body of impurities,and creating a mind muscle connection.
Can anyone do it?
One of the great benefits of hot yoga is that almost any adult is able to take part. Beginners can work their way up and are not forced to stay the entire 90 minutes. However, we do recommend that anyone with any heart problems or history of heart issues should ask their doctor before signing up for one of our classes.
What are the benefits of hot yoga?
The same flexibility and mindfulness benefits that come from your standard yoga is also achieved during hot yoga. The added heat can help increase flexibility while warming your muscles more effectively, and helping you get deeper into each posture, and improving your overall practice.
Hot yoga can also serve as a detox for your body. The 100-plus temperatures make for a great way to sweat out toxins. Our hot yoga classes are a huge hit with all of our members. As one of the top gyms in Burlington County, NJ, our hot yoga classes are just one of the ways we stand out from the competition.
