What is Hot Yoga?

Hot yoga refers to a range of yoga styles that take place in a heated room. This type of yoga is known for its challenging and intense nature, as well as its ability to detoxify the body. The practice typically involves a variety of postures and breathing exercises that are performed in a room heated to around 35 – 38 degrees Celsius.

Did you know? While the terms “hot yoga” and “Bikram yoga” are often used interchangeably, it turns out they are not the same. Unlike Bikram yoga, which follows a specific sequence of 26 postures and two breathing exercises, hot yoga encompasses a broader range of styles. Whichever style of yoga you prefer, The Cedars Haliburton is an alluring hot yoga retreat destination.

The Benefits of Attending a Luxury Hot Yoga Retreat

Hot yoga has many benefits for the body and mind. The added heat contributes to a more intense physical workout. 

The high temperatures increase flexibility, prevent injuries, and help detoxify the body. Regular practice aids joint mobility, flexibility, and muscle strength. 

Like other forms of yoga, hot yoga helps improve cardiovascular health, endurance, and overall fitness. The more you sweat, the harder your body works to regulate its temperature. A higher heart rate helps burn off calories. 

The movements enhance mental clarity and mindfulness and help reduce stress. And when attending a hot yoga retreat at The Cedars Haliburton, you don’t have to jump back into your car to go home afterward. You have the freedom to hydrate, wind down, and wash up at your own pace.
