Hot yoga is more than just an intense workout that can reshape the look of our bodies. It can reset the body and restore balance to the musculoskeletal system. Its therapeutic nature makes us feel better as we go about our daily lives. It improves the way we sit, sleep, walk and work.
Retraining the muscle spindles and stretching the muscle fascia increases flexibility and improves overall musculoskeletal health. However, a continued, consistent hot yoga or yin yoga practice is essential in order to achieve full, lasting benefits. To increase flexibility and get optimal results from these two therapeutic practices, practice yoga at least three times per week.
