I HAVE PRACTICED IN ALL SORTS OF HEATED ENVIRONMENTS BUT HAVE FELT THE INFARED HEAT IS THE MOST BENEFICIAL. IT HAS THE FEELING OF PRACTICING IN DIRECT SUNLIGHT AND THE SCIENCE OF THE BENEFITS OF INFARED IS STAGGERING IN SCOPE.
Do you want to love hot yoga?
Have you found that the forced heat in a hot yoga room just isn’t for you? Hot yoga with infrared heating may be just what you’re looking for!
Infrared light is NOT ultraviolet light… in fact, it has an opposite effect of UV. It diminishes fine lines and wrinkles. It’s the healthy light that allows plants to photosynthesize, or make energy to sustain and grow. Infrared light rays heat you from the inside… it’s a deep penetrating heat that warms you, and not just the surrounding air. It’s the ultimate detox.
Can’t imagine being heated from within? Imagine practicing yoga outside on a clear and sunny afternoon, minus the sun in your eyes. Relaxed, content, and full of energy, right?
Let’s see what practicing in a FIR (far infrared ray) yoga studio does for your body…
Reduce Pain and Inflammation
From arthritis and fibromyalgia to plain old muscle soreness, FIR can penetrate up to 3 inches into the body and under the skin, aiding in pain relief by improving blood circulation and enhancing the delivery of oxygen to soft tissue, which helps relax the muscles.
Infrared light waves gradually repair skin damage over time. It minimizes fine lines and wrinkles, helps scars and burns, improves the skin’s elasticity, and improves overall appearance of skin tone.
Along with strengthening our cardiovascular system through Ujjayi breathing, a rise in body temperature increases blood flow, which mimics the benefits of a passive cardiovascular workout and continues hours after your hot yoga practice!
Far infrared therapy is the best way to eliminate metals, chemicals, and toxins from the body. The FIR natural heating mechanism heats from the inside by raising the body temperature to create an “artificial fever.” Studies have shown that in this state, cancer cell growth slows, and white blood cells (infection fighters) are produced.
