What is Hot Yoga?
Hot Yoga has caused many impressions in recent years, because this is a very particular style. It consists of different postures, practiced for 60 to 90 minutes in a room heated to 42 degrees approximately, with 70 percent humidity, in order to:
Detoxify our body through sweat
By subjecting ourselves to high temperatures, we cause our bodies to sweat out everything we no longer need, such as some particles of arsenic, lead, cadmium and mercury.
This is wonderful, because a person who does not sweat regularly runs a high risk of these elements accumulating within the body and producing long-term negative effects.
Develop our patience and concentration
Performing a physical activity in conditions such as Hot Yoga helps us to control our mind, in a state of total concentration. S
f you start to get distracted by how your sweat falls, or what your partner is doing, or thinking about work, you lose your breathing rhythm, which causes your heart rate to go up and you start to get frustrated because you don’t keep your position balanced.
Although it is a very uncomfortable sport at first, with practice and discipline, it will be your favorite activity to take care of the body.
Overcome your mental limits
Mental blocks make us believe that we can’t reach beyond our goals. Hot Yoga puts us in a situation where many times, as beginners, we will say “no, I can’t do it anymore”, but the room is perfectly ventilated, there is all the oxygen your body needs, it is only your mind that makes you doubt.
When you understand this, you begin to control your thoughts and progressively we will realize that we will break those barriers and reach far beyond the established. This not only while practicing discipline, but in turn, we will implement this lifestyle in every routine of our day to day.
