The room is heated to warm muscles, which allows you to work deeper in a shorter period of time, seeing results faster. Heat takes the trauma out of stretching, heals and helps prevent injuries. Yoga is not just about working muscles: you are massaging deep tissues, glands and organs as well.

Sweating helps flush toxins from your body, giving you a wonderful glow from head to toe.
