Why Hot?

The Hot N Cool Yoga Club is equipped with Far Infrared (FIR) lighting. FIR heats your body, without needing to bring the whole studio to a scorching heat. The heat of your body helps you to sweat, releasing toxins and burning calories. Far Infrared lighting stimulates your body to produce endorphins, leaving you happy and relaxed. Far Infrared lighting is safe for long periods of time. It is often used to keep premature infants warm, and is the warming aspect of the light that we receive from the Sun.

Why Cool?

The Hot N Cool Yoga Club offers “Cool Classes,” which are done at room temperature. There are a number of advantages to exercising in a cool environment. Exercising while cool offers less of a chance of over-stretching your muscles. As your muscles are less malleable when cool, you are more aware of their tension. As such, you are forced to pay more attention to the stress you put on your muscles, and can avoid stretching too far. Cool-body yoga teaches patience, as you must work harder and longer to achieve your workout. As well, such yoga has a greater focus on meditation and finding your natural limits, so that you can expand them.
