Hot Yoga is Conjurning
So I have made it my Sunday ritual to do a morning Hot Yoga class. A new studio has opened locally and it is truly a magical place.
This particular studio has a philosophy is to promote and nurture the cultivation of healthy bodies and minds through yoga and meditation and as a busy, working mom this is so important. We talk a lot about self care but actually putting it into practice takes time.
Using age old modalities and state-of-the art infrared technology, it is believed that there are many long term health benefits. I believe in the beneficial effects of tranquility, beauty and serenity embodied by practicing yoga.
Having the infared heat is key, temperature hoovers around 100 degrees and creates the best sweat.
