In general, Hot Yoga means practicing yoga in a heated and humid room. The temperature of the heated room is kept at 95F to 105F and the humidity is 40 percent. Hot Yoga consists of a series of different standing and stretching postures in a flowing vinyasa style. It aims to contract all major muscle groups and raise your pulse. The hot and humid environment helps to loosen your muscles and detoxify your body through sweating.
