Soulful Warm Flow Yoga

with Chanel “Hema” Choquer

Warm yoga,  takes place in a heated room. This practice combines traditional yoga poses with a higher temperature environment,  around 85 degress, Fahrenheit  (30 degrees Celsius). The increased heat is believed to offer various benefits to practitioners, both physically and mentally.

 Physical Benefits:

1. **Increased Flexibility:** The heat in warm yoga helps to relax muscles, making it easier to stretch and deepen into yoga poses. This can contribute to increased flexibility over time.

2. **Detoxification:** Sweating is a natural way for the body to release toxins. The elevated temperature in warm yoga classes encourages sweating, promoting the elimination of impurities and waste from the body.

3. **Improved Circulation:** The heat can enhance blood flow, promoting better circulation throughout the body. This increased circulation can help deliver oxygen and nutrients to cells more efficiently.

4. **Weight Loss:** The combination of physical activity and a heated environment can lead to increased calorie burn, potentially aiding in weight loss and management.

Mental and Emotional Benefits:

1. **Stress Reduction:** The practice of warm yoga often incorporates mindfulness and deep breathing, helping to reduce stress and promote relaxation. The heat can also create a calming effect on the nervous system.

2. **Increased Focus:** The challenging conditions of warm yoga classes, coupled with the need for concentration on poses and breath, can improve mental focus and discipline.

3. **Mind-Body Connection:** The heat encourages practitioners to be more aware of their bodies and sensations, fostering a deeper mind-body connection. This heightened awareness can lead to a more profound yoga experience.

Warm yoga can be an energizing and transformative practice, providing a unique set of physical and mental benefits. As with any form of exercise, it’s advisable to consult with a healthcare professional before starting a new fitness routine, especially if you have pre-existing health conditions.
