As the name implies, hot yoga involves a lot of heat. Hot yoga (link to Page 4) is done in a heated and humid room meant to make you sweat. The practice is an off-shoot of Bikram yoga but has a much less strict system of poses. While the poses of Bikram class are already set, hot yoga classes can be easily adopted to focus on certain elements or to accommodate those who are practicing.
Hot Yoga has many of the same benefits of Bikram yoga such as improving joint movement and balance. And of course, with all the sweating you’ll do in a hot yoga class, it’s also a wonder for getting rid of your body’s toxins.
