Using heat in yoga is not new. However, rather than just turning up the heat, we have been very careful in choosing a system of hot yoga that is safe, accessible and aligned with our values.
triyoga hot is a powerful and nurturing practice for all levels, which facilitates safe, deep stretching and a detoxifying sweat. Following specific alignment and timing principles you will systematically work and rejuvenate your entire body, cultivating balance, strength and flexibility. triyoga hot is an alignment-based yoga practice based on the Tapasya method.
The far infrared heat used in triyoga hot helps create a different kind of hot yoga. The body (rather than the air) is heated by far infrared waves. Coupled with yoga it makes the body feel hot, producing a detoxifying sweat at a more tolerable intensity than other hot yoga classes, leaving you refreshed with a healthy glow. The room will be warm, heated to approximately 36 -38C.
