Back pain has become an epidemic in Western society. Four out of five Canadian adults will experience back pain at some point in their lives. Myalgia—muscle pain—in the back is sometimes caused by injury. More frequently it is a consequence of the modern, post-war urban lifestyle. The human body wasn’t meant to sit stationary for lengthy durations. Yet, the modern Western lifestyle requires us to remain seated in classrooms and offices for extended periods.
If you want to achieve the amazing results Bikram yoga has to offer, be sure to attend our next Focus 90 class. Focus 90 is a special class we host periodically to answer questions and make time for individual posture corrections. We slow things down to ensure that you’re working within your normal range of motion, applying the principle of less is more and doing the postures precisely for maximum benefit.
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.
Join us for our Focus 90 Posture Clinic on Saturday, January 23rd at noon. See demonstrations of each of the 26 poses. Get tips on how to execute each asana precisely while working within your current range of motion. Improve your postures with individual confirmations and corrections. Broaden your knowledge during question and answer session.
You’ll learn how to apply the principle of less is more to take your yoga practice to the next level and receive maximum health benefits.
We, Joyce and Greg, the owners of Hot Yoga TNT, are by no means “typical” yogis. We met while working in the construction industry. Our bodies were battered and broken from years of poor body mechanics and repetitive strain injuries in our highly physical and gruelling work. Finding little relief from conventional medicine, we both came to accept constant pain as a way of life.
Because hot yoga brought out the best in us, we embrace with gratitude having the Hot Yoga TNT space where others can discover their best selves. Greg and I are honoured by the opportunity to be a part of your yoga journey to good health and peace of mind.
