The warmer room actually makes the muscles more pliable thereby allowing people who do hot yoga extend further than they thought they could.
Our hot yoga fitness classes here in Canton, MA involves a hot studio. The heat in this studio make your heart pump faster because the heart must circulate more blood toward and promote perspiration in order to cool the body. This is actually a good thing to have in a workout knowing that the more heart-pumping, the better cardio workout, the more calorie burn are achieved than any person would get doing the same routines in a cooler setting.
While regular yoga practiced in an air-conditioned room has its place, the yoga done in a hot studio can kick stress to the curb. When doing hot yoga, the heat present will make you breathe deeper to feel relaxed and stress-free. The hot room will help train the lungs to retain and more efficiently process more air. In the presence of high temperatures, people may be encouraged to breathe deeper thereby making the lungs expand more than usual and allowing for more oxygen to enter the blood stream and get to the organs.
