BENEFITS OF YOGA
Practicing yoga asana in a heated environment increases flexibility and mobility of your body. The heat revitalizes the cells and tissues, and increases blood circulation. This helps to rid your body of toxins through the heat promoting perspiration to flush toxins from your body via your largest organ, the skin.
Flow Hot Yoga is dynamic and challenging, and all our teachers bring their own flair and knowledge to their classes. Our yoga sequences draw on traditional postures that encourage a strong and efficient body that regenerates daily for vitality.
Our heating system has been specifically engineered to ensure the consistency of the room temperature and humidity within a specific heat index, constant circulation of heated clean air helps promote perspiration and flexibility while constantly exchanging the air within the space so it is always fresh and clean. We here at Flow Hot Yoga are extremely conscious about the environment of our studio. The studio room and bathrooms are cleaned daily with natural hypoallergenic cleaners so you can practice without any concerns.
WHAT IS THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN POWER VINYASA AND BIKRAM YOGA?
These are two different styles within the same yoga family i.e. Hatha Yoga. Bikram is slower with concentrated postures and follows a fixed sequence of 26 asanas. Power Vinyasa is a more dynamic, moving, faster form of yoga which synchronises breath with movement – the posture sequence flows in correspondence with inhalations and exhalations (Vinyasa) and there is more variety in the series.
WHAT TO EXPECT IN A VINYASA CLASS
Expect to move and breathe smoothly from one pose to another. Your class will most likely include Sun Salutations. Vinyasa yoga is almost like a dance with synchronized breath and movements; the style and sequence will vary depending on the teacher, so try all the teachers out and get a variety of learning’s from them all.
WHAT TO EXPECT IN A YIN CLASS
Yin is focused on lengthening the connective tissue that surrounds joints in the hips, pelvis and lower back; you will notice most yin classes are spent on the floor. A typical yin class holds postures for 3-8 minutes, allowing the mind to surrender and restore your nervous system. Breath work and meditation during the class helps you to feel completely rejuvenated at the end of the class – Pure Bliss!
