Happy New Year! Well you’ve made it through one year and into another, and of course with every New Year comes a new pledge to better your fitness routine. The best way to keep an exercise routine fresh is to try new things that challenge your body in new ways and burns major calories. If you’re ready to break a sweat and shift your workout into overdrive then Bikram and Hot Yoga is for you.
So what are Bikram and Hot yoga you ask? Well in short they are yoga classes where you perform a series of basic yoga postures in a sauna-like room where the heat is cranked up to nearly 105 degrees and 40 percent humidity. Before you scream “Oh hell no,” the benefits may make the workout worth it. Not only can you burn between 300-600 calories a class doing hot yoga, but with each class you’ll increase your stamina and flexibility, which could come in handy during other hot moments in your life.
But be warned hot yoga is not for the faint of heart! You will be pushing your mind and body to its limits and in all that heat it is very easy to become dehydrated and over extend yourself. If you can stand the heat, Bikram and Hot Yoga can definitely help you take your weight loss goals to the next level. Happy sweating!
