WHY SHOULD I DO YOGA & HOT PILATES?

 

WHAT ARE THE BENEFITS?

Let me ask you: Do you want to get rid of back pain? Get a good sleep? Heal injuries? Beat depression? Gain muscle and stamina? Improve core strength? Stay sane?

Yoga & Hot Pilates increase flexibility so that you can bring more ease to your movement and don't feel so stuck in your body. Physical activity increases the motility and mobility of the organs and muscles, allowing them to work better and perform their natural detoxification process. During the process, joints become lubricated, keeping them healthy and flexible. You will also improve your circulation, blood flow, and blood pressure. Deep breathing enhances the function of the lungs. Most importantly, yoga helps you calm and center your mind, turn it off for a while and brings you back to your carefree self again. SO YOU FEEL GOOD!

BENEFITS OF    BIKRAM YOGA

Helps to stretch, detoxify, relieve stress, tone, and heal chronic pain such as arthritis, joint aches, knee injuries, hip and back problems. Helps with alignment issues in the spine, osteoarthritis, cardiovascular diseases, hypertension, blood pressure issues, diabetes, rheumatism, and many more. Bikram yoga can help clear out brain plaque and clean out blood vessels, which can be good for preventing dementia. The class is centered around the spine and keeping your organs functioning correctly by flushing them out.  

BENEFITS OF HOT PILATES

More conventional or traditional workouts are weight bearing and tend to build short, bulky muscles - the type most prone to injury. Pilates elongates and strengthens muscles, improving elasticity and joint mobility. A body with balanced strength and flexibility is less likely to be injured.

Why the Heat?

  • Keeping the body from overheating (contrary to popular misconception)

  • Protecting the muscles to allow for deeper stretching

  • Detoxifing the body (open pores to let toxins out)

  • Thinning the blood to clear the circulatory system

  • Increasing heart rate for better cardiovascular workout

  • Improving strength by putting muscle tissue in optimal state for reorganization

  • Reorganize the lipids (fat) in the muscular structure

  • The body burns fat more effectively.

  • Increases suppleness and elasticity of muscles, ligaments and other supporting structures of the body, allowing for greater flexibility with less chance of injury.

  • Dilates capillaries more effectively, oxygenating tissues, muscles, glands, organs and increasing the removal of waste products.

  • Increases metabolism, accelerating the breakdown of glucose and fatty acids.

  • increases cardiovascular workout.

  • Leads to sweating which promotes detoxification.

  • Just as when your body raises its temperature to fight infection, the elevated temperatures in the yoga room improve T-cell function and strengthen the immune system.

  • Improves the nervous system as messages are carried more efficiently to and from your brain.

  • Strengthens willpower, self control, concentration, and determination
