Best Yoga Studio in NYC
Hot On Yoga is committed to being the best Yoga studio in NYC for those who are devoted to the practice. It’s well known that hot yoga has all kinds of benefits. The one that’s touted most often is detoxification: heavy sweating is said to help flush toxins from the skin. The heat also allows your muscles to go a little more deeply and safely into the postures so you know you’re really warming up the muscles and you can really approach the postures from a safe place. Working in a heated room also elevates the heart rate, which makes the body work harder. It’s really for those who want a more intense workout which helps develop strength, flexibility and tone along with a cardiovascular workout. Working in heat helps the body relax, improves breathing (which helps conditions like asthma) and focuses the mind, which develops better mental concentration.
Like with “regular” yoga, hot yoga comes in all kinds of different styles. Bikram yoga, which is practiced at certified studios right across the country and the world, is still considered the original incarnation of the form. Those classes follow a set sequence of 26 postures and focus on endurance. Moksha Yoga was founded by two yogis from Toronto who wanted to integrate an environmental component to their hot yoga practice. All Moksha studios, found across Canada and the United States, adhere to “green” principles, incorporating things like energy-efficient heating and sustainable flooring.
After the class you should experience, while lying on your back, feeling well-stretched and relaxed. Your clothes drenched with sweat. However, embracing the sweat is the secret to hot yoga. A lot of people tend to feel self-conscious about the fact that they’re sweating a lot. And because they’re so self-conscious, they want to wipe their sweat away. When really, it’s better just to let the sweat flow. Wiping it will close your pores, and that means your body has to produce that sweat again. It’s best just to let it flow and realize that everyone around you is sweating just as much.
