Infrared Hot Yoga
Our triyoga hot yoga classes are heated by far-infrared radiant panels. Far-infrared radiant (FIR) heat is a completely safe form of naturally occurring energy that heats objects by direct light conversion. Instead of heating the air within the room FIR heats the body directly. Direct light conversion warms only the object and does not raise the temperature of the surrounding free air. FIR has the ability to penetrate, refract, radiate and reflect. It has a warming effect that stimulates your immune, cardiovascular and lymphatic system. Find out more about infrared heat here.
