Most heated yoga studios use forced air to heat their rooms, Lotus yoga & Health Spa uses Infrared heat. This heat provides a detoxifying form of heat which expels toxins, and pollutants from your body. Radiant heating panels work very much like the sun, they first heat room objects and people and then re-radiate that heat to warm the surrounding air. The result is an evenly warmed zone, from floor to ceiling.
Radiant heat promotes a stronger immune system, better cardiovascular health, and speeds up the healing process in soft tissue injuries such as tears, pulls, and sprains. Radiant heat combined with yoga practice increases circulation; which, makes your heart pump harder and encourages weight loss and a sense of well being.
Benefits of Radiant Heat:
Burns hundreds of calories
Reduces stress and fatigue
Strengthens the cardiovascular system
Heals injuries faster and more efficiently
Relieves pain and migraine headaches
Eases joint pain and stiffness
Relaxes muscles and increases flexibility
Deep cleanses skin naturally

Practicing yoga in a heated room increases your pulse rate and metabolism, allowing your blood vessels to become more flexible and making your bod burn some major calories! This in turn makes circulation easier and increases blood flow to the limbs. Hot yoga is amazing for weight loss, toning the body, and detoxification.
