~ Hot Yoga facilitates deeper stretching, injury prevention, stress and tension relief, and systematically stimulates and restores health to every muscle, joint, and organ of the body.
~ 60 minutes in our state of the art temperature and moisture controlled studio creates approximately the same amount of perspiration as a 10 kilometer run!
~ Studies show that most of us have between 400 and 800 chemical residues stored in the fat cells of our bodies. When our bodies exceed the limit that we can excrete, we begin to store these toxins. This seriously compromises our physiological and psychological health and leads to chronic disease. Perspiration is recognized by health practitioners worldwide as perhaps the most effective method of removing both difficult chemical and heavy metal toxins from the body
Yoga is about creating balance in the body through developing both strength and flexibility. Its purpose is to help each one of us achieve our highest potential and to experience enduring health and happiness. With Yoga, we can extend our healthy, productive years far beyond the accepted norm and, at the same time, greatly improve the quality of our lives.
~The temperature during class triggers the production of white blood cells and killer T cells by your thymus. The generation of antibodies and the production of interferon speeds up, resulting in a strengthened immune system.
~The heat causes the tiny blood vessels in the skin to expand and the heart rate to rise which increases blood circulation but not blood pressure.
~I have been practicing Chinese Medicine for 37 years , with a specialty of musculo-skeletal conditions. I have a very busy practice, and can only attend Yoga classes twice a week (on a good week!). I have been attending Sedona Hot Yoga for several years now, and find the 90-minute classes to be a perfect balance of strength training, flexibility, aerobics, meditation and detoxification of the body. I have just entered my 60th year and recently had my blood tested. My health is better now in every way, than it was when I turned 50, and much of it I attribute to Hot Yoga. I am deeply grateful to Jennifer and her experienced, compassionate staff for all they are contributing to the Sedona community.
