Escape the frigid winter temps and warm up at a hot yoga class. Traditional yoga performed at average room temperatures has been touted as enhancing flexibility, balance and strength. However, proponents of hot yoga note the added benefits of detoxification through sweat.
During a hot yoga class, an instructor will guide you through a variety of postures and breathing exercises promoting relaxation and focus. Nevertheless, studios can get as hot as 105 degrees, so while it’s safe to leave your worries at home, don’t forget to bring water and a towel.
You can find hot yoga classes at CorePower Yoga in Edina, which also houses a full service spa as well as an ultra-stylish retail boutique.
