While saunas may not be the perfect substitute for a yoga studio, you might be surprised at how much you can actually do – especially in a relatively spacious unit like our Clearlight Sanctuary model. Standing poses or moves that require vertical rather than horizontal movements are obviously easier to perform; but many supine poses may be achieved as well.
Since yoga yields many of the same positive outcomes as heat therapy, going through a short routine in your infrared sauna will accelerate the beneficial results. Depending on your fitness level, yoga program, and length of time spent in your Clearlight unit, these results may include:
- Increased flexibility and loosening of stiff joints
- Improved deep-breathing ability
- Greater weight loss
- Improved muscle tone
- Stronger immune system
- Reduction of stress and heightened capacity for relaxation/meditation
YouTube is a wonderful resource for finding individual hot yoga poses or even full workouts that can be done within the confines of an infrared sauna, so be sure to check out some videos if you want to give this a try at home.
More and more people are realizing that yoga and saunas go hand-in-hand in terms of the healthful, rejuvenating effects they have on the body. From now on, why not combine your workouts and heat therapy sessions into one activity and enjoy superior results.
