Part 2 of our interview with Liz
What are the benefits of hot yoga?
All the amazing benefits that yoga has to offer plus the benefit of being in a non-intimidating environment, as the dim lighting reduces self consciousness, the rhythmic music sets the tone, the whole ambient environment is welcoming, disarming, and very relaxing.
We find the heat very soothing and beneficial in reducing injury to muscles, as you are warmer and also helping you move more freely.
Yoga is traditionally done in much a warmer climate than the UK.
What would you say to people who have never done hot yoga before? Do you have to be experienced?
I also advise beginners to arrive early to chat to the teacher, and choose a mat where they feel most confident within the pod. Don’t be surprised if you find a new healthy addiction.
