WHAT ARE THE BENEFITS OF INFRARED HEAT?
Practice a minimum of 4 classes a week to experience wellness that comes with a consistent Sun Yoga lifestyle. Our beginners usually come in thinking that yoga will help them increase flexibility. It’s true, yoga does help increase flexibility. However, it does much more than that. It is a powerful tool of self-transformation in many levels. The increased well-being that comes with a consistent Sun Yoga practice is due to the scientifically proven health benefits of yoga, the infrared heat, and of course the love and dedication of our wonderful Sun Yoga instructors and amazing community!
SUN YOGA HAWAII offers the very best quality of infrared hot yoga experience. Our state of the art infrared heated studio provides the right amount of infrared to promote the benefits of this powerful therapeutic technology. Infrared waves are invisible light waves. The warmth that is produced by our infrared heaters is radiant, making it more tolerable for your body than traditional forced-air heating systems. The infrared heat is absorbed by your body, heating you from the inside out. Infrared waves are absorbed more deeply into your muscular and skeletal systems than traditional forms of convection heat.
As the infrared waves are absorbed by your body, molecules begin to vibrate, causing them to start to expel toxins, fat and impurities from your cells into your blood stream. These are then released from your body in the form of sweat. The result is an incredible detoxifying effect at a cellular level. Your muscles and internal organs will be gently warmed. This form of heat is perfectly safe. Hospitals use infrared heat to keep premature babies warm.
There are numerous revitalizing health benefits to practicing in our infrared studio:
Sweat produced by infrared heat contains approximately 20% toxins, compared to 3% with sweat produced by traditional heat and exercise. The higher percentage of toxin removal is because infrared waves are absorbed more deeply into the cells of the body.
Infrared helps to release enzymes that increase the elimination of damaged tissues. During this process, nitric oxide is released which helps expand capillaries and increases blood flow, helping to lower blood pressure.
Infrared heat increases circulation and body temperature, causing us to sweat. Sweating allows us to remove toxins, bacteria, and dead skin. Infrared heat also stimulates the production of collagen, new cell tissues, and rapidly increases skin regeneration, improving skin tone, texture, and elasticity.
Because your body temperature is raised, your immune system is stimulated and will work more effectively to fight any bacteria and viruses present in your system.
Increased blood flow and the deep penetrating heat will help to eliminate joint and muscle pain. Infrared heat also helps to heal sore muscles and joints.
Infrared waves are deeply absorbed by the cells of the body, breaking down cellulite into a water soluble substance that can be eliminated through sweating.
