Heat Things up with Hot Yoga

Hot yoga is one of the most popular and traditional forms of yoga practiced in the United States. During a traditional Bikram class at Yoga By Robin in Marlton, we guide you through a series of 26 poses in a methodical and flowing manner. Our classes encourage deep breathing, physical stability, increased focus, balance and mindfulness, often helping to relieve stress while keeping your body active.

The practice of Hot Yoga is great for mental health and is beneficial for weight loss. Hot classes are often referred to as hot yoga. Unlike some other forms of yoga, Hot courses cannot be taught just anywhere. That is because during a Hot class our Yoga By Robin yoga studio is heated to about 105 degrees Fahrenheit. The hot temperature of the room encourages your muscles to loosen, for your pores to open and for toxins to leave the body through sweat as you move from one pose to another.

What to Expect from Hot Yoga

Every hot yoga course at Yoga By Robin is taught by a certified instructor who understands the mental and health benefits of yoga, and is able to encourage proper movements and healthy growth within the warm studio walls. Your yoga instructor may not follow the movements herself in a class, but instead recite the movements in order from the front of the room while watching to ensure that you and your fellow class members are safely and properly moving from pose to pose. When you come to a  yoga course at Yoga By Robin, remember to bring a towel and to hydrate before, during and after. During the course of the class you will sweat a lot, and yoga mats often become slippery when wet.

Benefits of Hot Yoga

The excessively high heat of yoga will cause you to sweat a great deal, but weight loss isn’t the only reason why the room is heated as it is. Thanks to the high temperature, Hot yoga encourages enhanced concentration. As you move from pose to pose in hot yoga you cannot think solely about the heat, and you cannot let your mind wander far from it either. The heat encourages mindfulness, increased focus and stress reduction. At the end of a standard yoga course it is not surprising to feel that the entire course went by in a matter of minutes, when in actuality a course is about 90 minutes long.

Bikram yoga is one of the most popular forms of yoga in the United States thanks to its weight loss benefits. The poses in hot yoga can be easily modified to accommodate any fitness level. As long as you do not attempt to take on too much, too quickly, yoga with a certified instructor at Yoga By Robin in Marlton can be a good form of yoga for beginners, as well as those who are more advanced.
