No matter what your level of fitness, you will find hot yoga very challenging. With persistence, patience and dedication, you can lose inches and develop muscle strength that might never come from other forms of exercise. Aerobic activity trains the heart, lungs and cardiovascular system to process oxygen more quickly and efficiently to every part of the body by elevating the heart rate to its target level. As the heart muscle becomes stronger and more efficient, a lot of blood can be pumped with each stroke. Additionally, the digestive, endocrine, lymphatic and elimination systems will begin to work harmoniously, with unhealthy cravings and sluggish metabolism diminishing. Remember: the more you put into your yoga practice, the more benefits you will receive!
