Superior Sauna Hot Yoga Sauna

Doing yoga in a sauna sounds crazy, but it’s a fitness craze that’s becoming increasingly popular with fans of yoga and sauna users alike. Those who have tried are enthusiastic about how the combination of excessive sweating and movement of various muscle groups improve their overall health. Many people find that they also improve their deep breathing over time by practicing yoga while sweating away in a hot sauna.

3 Easy Steps to Ordering a Hot Yoga Sauna Kit

Determine Size

Research saunas to determine what you want: size, capacity, layout, options, etc. Our design consultants have designed commercial and residential saunas worldwide and can help you choose the best accommodations for combining your sauna and yoga sessions. Recommended minimum size for a hot yoga sauna is a 4' x 7' sauna room for 1 person yoga workout or 7' x 7' sauna room for 2 person yoga workout. The recommended maximum size for a residential hot yoga sauna is 7' x 8'. Maximum height for any hot yoga sauna should be 8'. Keep in mind that the recommended height for a normal traditional sauna is 7'. Heat rises so in a sauna a lower ceiling is always desirable for more efficient heat. Floor exercises are often the best routine in a hot yoga sauna unless in a commercial facility. However, an extended 8-foot height should allow for most standing yoga exercises.

Benefits of Hot Yoga

  • Flexibility: No, you won't be forced into contortionist positions. The heat will allow you to safely reach new levels of personal flexibility in beginner's postures, which is therapeutic for your body (see number seven). Plus, let's be honest, being flexible is cool. You'll be busting out Standing Bow Pose at your next party.
  • Strength: Your own body is your gym. This yoga is low impact and uses muscles you didn't know you had-trying standing in a wide lunge for Triangle pose on carpet and not sliding! Also, a prime focus is on spine strength, which is key to a long healthy life!
  • Breath: The definition of Hatha Yoga asana is: stillness in a posture while breathing normally. With the added element of the heat, you won't make it far if you don't breathe deeply! If there is no breathing, there is no yoga. It won't take long before you learn to breathe in a full and controlled manner.
  • Cardio: Your heart can work the same way doing yoga postures in a heated room as it does when running a mile, and you never even leave your mat. Particularly in postures when you are balancing and contracting your muscles at the same time. A 90-minute class can burn up to 1,000 calories. The way you stretch and compress your internal organs and glands also stimulates metabolism, so you are burning calories quicker outside the room as well.
  • Detox: The heated room helps you to stretch more and get your cardio, but it also helps you sweat. The postures themselves are detoxifying for your muscles, organs, and glands and sweating furthers that.
  • Focus: Most Hot Yoga classes consist of the same 26 postures and two breathing exercises-and if not, there is almost always a dialed routine. The routine helps you to advance your practice through repetition. As you advance, you gain tremendous focus and determination. The ability to focus carries over to your daily life. When you can focus on the task at hand, you'll excel, and you can enjoy it more.
  • Healing: The primary purpose of this yoga is therapy. With a regular practice, these postures can help to heal old injuries and also prevent them in the future. This is especially true for, but not limited to, back pain. Don't skip the postures that are slightly uncomfortable. Hot Yoga is also known to reduce symptoms of conditions and illnesses including diabetes, asthma, high blood pressure, depression, arthritis and obesity.
