The Benefits of Stretching

Stretching will make you more flexible, but you do not have to be flexible to receive the powerful health benefits of yoga.  Yoga is simply the medium by which internal organs are stimulated to promote general health and well being.  As flexibility improves, so does the potential for internal change.  Over time, you’ll gain self-knowledge and a deeper understanding of your Whole Self.  Yoga may seem strange at first but keep trying. With a bit of practice it will become very natural, and intrinsically rewarding.  Besides all that, it just feels good!

Benefits of the Heat

1) Heat allows your muscles to stretch safely and joints to move more freely.   2) Heat increases metabolism assisting with weight loss & weight maintenance. 3) Elevated core temperatures help immune cells work better at fighting viral and bacterial infections before they take hold.   4) Heat causes vasodialation allowing arteries and veins to relax and widen. This widening results in less vascular resistance which is particularly powerful in treating hypertension. 5) Exercise in the heat increases plasma volume and triggers the body to produce more oxygen carrying red blood cells. This allows us to perform normal activities more easily and/or increase athletic performance when looking for a competitive edge.
