What is Hot Yoga?
It is a yoga modality that mixes hatha and ashtanga, takes 60 or 90 minutes and is practiced in a heated room (between 38º and 40º, with controlled humidity). The heat is controlled in a way that is comfortable for those who practice and it helps to relax the muscles, leaving the joints softer. This makes the practitioners advance in the poses with more ease and intensity, reducing the risk of injury.
At Hot Yoga, sun salutations are replaced by the heated room. How does that help? This modality is able to reach a larger audience, such as people with chronic problems or older people (and, therefore, less joint mobility). Ashtanga practice can be very intense for them because of the Suryas Namaskar, an intense sequence of postures.

Meanwhile, postures (asanas) with breathing technique (pranayama) strengthen the cardiovascular system and muscles of the body.
