Hot Yoga is the ideal practice for athletes of all kinds. A regular yoga practice will give you improved balance, core strength, overall power, flexibility, range of motion, and mental focus. The heat makes your muscles more elastic and pliable which allows for deeper, safer stretching. It speeds up the breakdown of glucose and fatty acids and it thins the blood, increasing the heart rate for an excellent cardiovascular workout. It also helps prevent injury by lengthening muscles, strengthening and lubricating joints, and increasing range of motion. Also, the breath control learned in yoga, will help keep your body and mind calm in stressful conditions, preparing you for your next race or performance sport.
