Infrared Heated yoga
Why is Infrared Hot Yoga so different and so much better than hot air coming from an a/c vent???
What is INFRARED Heat?
Infrared rays are often referred to as "happy rays". Infrared heat stimulates the release of endorphins, "the happy hormones,” in our brain. That is one of the reasons we love being in the sun so much.
How does INFRARED heat work?
Infrared waves penetrate tissue, triggering the mobilization of chemicals from fat stored under the skin directly into the sweat. After about 20 minutes the increased body heat starts releasing stored fat.
Photons emitted by infrared waves help release enzymes which increase the elimination of damaged and diseased tissues. During this process nitric oxide is released, which expands capillaries and increases circulation, carrying toxins to the lymph system and out of the body. Nitric oxide improves heart function through better blood circulation and lowers blood pressure.
Exercise itself assists the body to mobilize toxins, but infrared heat accelerates this process immensely.
Infrared heat works from under the skin. Thus, there is no need for extreme temperature in the studio. Infrared waves penetrate the body by 1.5 to 2 " and heat you from the inside out.
Toxins in our food and environment greatly contribute to premature aging, obesity, low energy levels, cancer, low immunity, depression, insomnia, and many other damaging conditions. Infrared heat easily removes stored toxins from your body and helps reduce cellulite. It will also rejuvenate your skin. You will look and feel younger.

We comfortably encourage our body to do as much as it can while at the same time being aware of our limitations. We will drop in a little deeper and explore self awareness, learning to listen to our bodies and not to our inner voices or external distractions.
We work very hard in our lives, and while we may sleep, we rarely take time to rest. Restorative yoga poses help us learn to relax and rest deeply and completely.
During deep relaxation, all the organ systems of the body are benefited, and a few of the measurable results of deep relaxation are the reduction of blood pressure, serum triglycerides and blood sugar levels in the blood, the increase of the "good cholesterol" levels, as well as improvement in digestion, fertility, elimination, the reduction of muscel tension, insomnia, and generalized fatigue.
