Hot Vinyasa Yoga - What is it and is it for me?

At the HYC studio, Hot Vinyasa (flow based) Yoga is practised at a temperature of 30-34C. This temperature is achieved by using both convection and Infrared (IR) heaters.

IR heaters produce Infrared radiation, a type of radiant energy that's invisible to human eyes but that we can feel as heat.

These warm wavelengths have a number of health benefits

- Improves circulation

- Reduces joint pain, inflammation and stiffness

- If you love warm weather climates, it can feel fabulous now that Autumn/Winter is here in the North of Scotland ❄️

However hot yoga is not for everyone, especially if you don't like the heat!

Consult with a doctor before trying hot yoga, if you have low blood pressure or a pre-existing health condition. Also if you have adverse reactions to heat, are prone to heat stroke or dehydration or have a medical reason to avoid being in a hot tub or sauna, you may want to stick with regular yoga. A hot yoga class requires some experience of yoga so is not suitable for complete beginners.

If you come to a hot yoga class, make sure you’re well hydrated by drinking a lot of water before, during and after class. Also bring a towel as it can get very sweaty (we sell yoga towels on our site & use the profits from each sale to fund our community classes)

In conclusion, hot yoga can be like marmite, you either love it or hate it 🙏
