HOT YOGA

Hot yoga is a dynamic style of yoga. It is a set of 26 asanas (body positions) and 2 breathing exercises. The order of the postures is still the same because each posture prepares body for the following one. You practice in the room heated between 37° - 40°C. Thanks to higher temperature is your body more flexible and at the same time through the sweating there is a total detoxication of your body.

Beside the other types of yoga, the hot yoga instructor does not practice during the lesson with you. You have to listen carefully to what the instructor says. Instructor describes you how to get in the posture, how to hold it and how to step out of the asana. If you focus on the instructor and carefully listen to him, you are mentally relaxed already. Thanks to fully understanding what you are doing at the moment, you can stop the flow of your thoughts.
