Hot Yoga is a style of Hatha Yoga that originated from a lineage in Calcutta, India. The Hot Yoga offered at Hot Yoga Ahwatukee finds its roots from this lineage in Calcutta, but also integrates postures from other styles of Yoga to create variations and even greater range of motion. The yoga classes are practiced in a heated room to stretch and strengthen various areas of the body. The practice brings vital balance and restores all systems to optimal health. Consistency will create a physical, mental and spiritual harmony that will be felt in all areas of the practitioner’s life.
The yoga Asanas are designed to work the entire body, internally and externally. A regular yoga practice will improve the functions of the heart, spleen, kidneys, liver and digestive system. In addition practitioners will improve joint mobility while strengthening all the body’s muscles, tendons and ligaments. Yoga is a proven tool to naturally manage physical ailments.
As in all forms of yoga, the mind is strengthened through the discipline of a regular yoga practice, which helps to eliminate stress, depression, anxiety, and other inhibiting conditions. Hot Yoga helps to create a calming of the mind, quieting of the brain’s chatter, and deep relaxation response.
As we strengthen the body and calm the mind, we open ourselves up for a transformational experience. The intention behind our Hot Yoga is to balance the body, quiet the mind and nourish the soul.
