Yoga is a collection of physical, mental and spiritual practices originating from ancient India. In Western culture – Yoga is often considered a form of exercise, consisting largely of the postures called asanas. It has slowly gained popularity and developed into posture-based physical fitness, stress-relief and relaxation technique. Yet still it maintains a meditative and spiritual core. The effects of yoga on physical and mental health have been a popular subject to studies in the west, with evidence that regular yoga practice yields benefits for low back pain and stress.
Hot Yoga is a modern form of yoga performed under warm conditions resulting in the bodies natural effect of perspiration. In the west it has become popular as an attempt to recreate the benefits of practicing yoga in warm climates where the body undergoes a gentle detoxification through sweat. In these applications, the muscles of the body have the opportunity to relax, and warm up more easily offering its students the ability for a deeper stretch.
*Some contra-dictions have been noted as exercising in high heat and humidity is not advised for pregnant women due to over-exhaustion, muscle injury or tissue damage.
