You will notice the increased flexibility of knee joints, shoulder joints, neck, hips, ankles and wrists, and etc.
Strength: The Hot Yoga is low impact and uses muscles you didn’t know you had. In addition to the gradual muscle strength increase of the arms and legs, the prime focus is to have a healthy, flexible and strong spine, which is the key to longevity.
Common Pains: Hot Yoga heals or eases chronic pain that a lot of people live and deal with, such as joint pain, lower back pain etc that affect the knees, lower back, shoulders and wrists, neck, hips and the rest of the body.
Cardio: Your heart can work the same way doing yoga postures in a heated room as it does when running a mile, and you never even have to leave your mat, particularly in postures when you are balancing and contracting your muscles at the same time. A 90 minute Hot Yoga class can burn about 800 to 1,000 or more calories depending on your personal depth of practice.
