Our studio is heated by energy efficient and therapeutic infrared heat which helps boost your metabolism, breaks down fat, conditions the cardiovascular system, improves flexibility and joint comfort and aids in relaxation and stress management. Infrared heat is a gentle heat that feels like a warm and sunny day rather than a sauna.
Our goal is to help you build the best version of yourself. We all start somewhere. Yoga is a great way to improve your endurance for other physical activities or for daily movements. Yoga can be a great complement to other physical activity. After other activities, such as weightlifting or running, yoga can help you stretch and strengthen your muscles while relaxing. Through your yoga practice you will build muscular and cardiovascular strength and endurance.
Our studio features hypo-allergenic, non-porous flooring, making it easy to keep fresh. We take pride in providing a clean space, which allows you to focus on your workout. Our indoor plants help boost your mood, concentration and creativity along with reducing stress and fatigue. Plants also help clean the air by absorbing toxins and producing oxygen. You will leave feeling refreshed, invigorated and energized.
WHAT ARE THE BENEFITS OF HOT YOGA?
Increased Flexibility: heat helps warm the muscles and allows for a greater range of motion. The heat allows hot yoga students to extend further into the poses and gain confidence in their practice.
Weight Loss: when we set, our body expends more energy to help cool us down. Hot yoga helps to burn more calories due to increasing the energy expended throughout the class.
Increased Circulation: when our bodies are warm, blood flow and circulation increases. This can help lower blood pressure, oxygenate the organs and rid the body of toxins.
Detoxification: hot yoga will make you sweat, which is your body’s natural way of flushing toxins.
Pain Relief: when your tissues, muscles and joints are penetrated by heat, they heal and regenerate. This can help sooth pain, minor injuries and chronic ailments.
STILL NOT SOLD ON OCONOMOWOC YOGA?
Other workouts can be grueling, high-impact and tedious. Hot yoga is a low impact alternative that helps build muscle while keeping your mind and body totally engaged, for a full 60 minutes. Hot yoga will help you build strength and flexibility, reduce stress, and increase mindfulness- all at the same time. If you’re still not sold, let us tackle some common hot yoga objections and myths.
It’s Too Hot:
Our classes are heated anywhere from 85 to 105 degrees using primarily infrared heat. Infrared heat feels more like the warm sun than a steaming sauna. We recommend you arrive to class 15 minutes early to allow yourself time to lay and stretch in the yoga studio prior to class and adjust to the heat.
I’m Not Flexible Enough:
You do not have to be flexible to do yoga. Going to yoga classes regularly can help you increase flexibility and strength, but it is not a prerequisite to doing yoga. We all start somewhere.
I Already Sweat Too Much Doing Regular Workouts:
This might come as a surprise, but we all sweat. It’s completely normal and to be expected, especially when it comes us to hot yoga! Trust us when we say, everyone around you will be sweating you too. Sweating is our natural response to heat and exerting energy and helps us reap the full benefits of a hot yoga class.
I Won’t Be Able to Hold Poses While Dripping in Sweat:
We’re all sweating and sliding around. Bring or rent a towel from the studio to cover your mat and reduce slipping on your mat. Wear sweat-wicking clothing that will help reduce sweat and help you gain traction in your poses. Bring a small sweat towel that you can use to wipe sweat away during class.
I’ll Get Dehydrated:
Stay hydrated before, during and after class. Bring a water bottle to class with you to sip on during class. Afterwards, drink an electrolyte drink to replenish nutrients and help yourself stay hydrated.
I’ll Overstretch from My Muscles Being Too Warm:
Heat increase blood flow to your muscles, making them more pliable. You’re actually less likely to get injured with warm muscles than cooler ones. Although you may feel slight discomfort in some of the poses (this is how you grow!), you should never feel pain. If you feel pain, it’s your body’s signal to you to back off and come out of the pose a bit until it is more comfortable.
It’s Too Physically Demanding:
Hot yoga is a very low impact form of exercise, especially when compared to running or lifting weights. Putting some amount of strain on your limbs, joints and muscles is what helps us grow stronger and improve balance. Moving from pose to pose helps enhance our range of motion which makes daily life easier on your body, especially as we age.
