The Sizzling Benefits of Thermal Yoga

Thermal Yoga is a strength-based style of Hatha Yoga from northern India that consists of 26 postures and two breathing exercises. It is a series for all levels taught for 60, 75, or 90 minutes. The challenge of each pose is based on each individual’s personal abilities. The postures are done in the safe environment of a heated room (105 degrees Fahrenheit with roughly 55% humidity) in order to mitigate one’s body resistance without risk of injury.

Thermal Yoga is a unique style of yoga where one spends time in postures giving the body time to strengthen while offering the mind space to pause. It can be practiced by students at any level because it is safe for beginners and challenging for advanced practitioners. There are a multitude of benefits of Thermal Yoga including:

  • Burns body fat and increases metabolism
  • Reduces stress
  • Increases flexibility
  • Builds strength and endurance
  • Increases muscle tone
  • Helps with back, neck, shoulder and knee pain
  • Deepens quality of sleep
  • Improves posture
  • Increases circulation
  • Raises energy levels
  • Increases balance, coordination, focus and discipline
  • Improves healthy and balanced function of the skeletal, muscular, circulatory, digestive, respiratory, endocrine and nervous systems of the body
  • Strengthens the immune system
