Attention all hot yoga, power vinyasa yoga and Bikram yoga fans: Sometimes the fast pace of daily life prevents us from fitting in our regular yoga workout. Fortunately, Sunlighten has a variety of home saunas, such as the Community Solocarbon® Far Infrared Saunas, that enable you to easily create a hot yoga space for yourself…whenever you want, in the comfort of your own home.
Why Bikram Yoga
Practicing hot yoga helps the body sweat out toxins and allows the yoga practitioner to safely go deeper into poses or stretches.
In the various forms of hot yoga, the room is typically heated to 30˚ to 50˚ C (85˚ to 122˚ F) in order to warm the muscles and induce sweat. Warm muscles stretch further and with reduced risk of injury. Because stretching is an effective way to increase flexibility, hot yoga can help improve range of motion, prevent injuries, and help heal from previous injuries.
In addition to increased flexibility and injury prevention, the heat from our home saunas enables the body to burn more calories in its efforts to stay cool while exercising. The heat in hot yoga also helps the body remove toxins by dilating the capillaries, which then helps the body distribute oxygen more effectively to muscles, glands, organs and other tissues.
Exercise, deep breathing, and meditation have been shown to reduce stress levels, and hot yoga combines all three of these stress-reducing elements. Equally important, because hot yoga increases the pulse rate, the body works to regulate its temperature, increasing calorie expenditure (as does high-impact exercise) but without any harsh impact on joints.
With its ability to assist with weight loss, create a better workout, and reduce stress, it’s no wonder why hot yoga continues to be such a popular form of exercise and stands as another example of how you can use Sunlighten saunas for weight loss.
Why Sunlighten Saunas
The Sunlighten Community Solocarbon® Far Infrared Saunas are easily configured to allow ample space for a single person to pose.
