Don’t Sweat It: Hot Yoga Classes in Oldsmar

There are many different types of yoga, but hot yoga seems to be the one that intimidates newbies the most. Some are a little weary to start practicing because they are shy and don't want to look silly. But what most people don't realize is when you step into the studio you leave all judgments and negative thinking at the door. It is a calming, peaceful and 100% individual experience. You don't have to worry about falling out of postures, being unable to balance for as long as others, or not being able to bend in ways others can. It is called a “practice” for a reason-- you'll get there! Below are some of the most common concerns and fears (and a few misconceptions!) regarding hot yoga classes-- and why they shouldn't hold you back from trying one of our beginner yoga classes this week: I'm not flexible.

You might get a little dizzy, nauseous, light-headed or fatigued from the heat. This is totally normal. You will sweat. A lot. Sweating buckets is the norm in Hot Yoga, particularly in the beginning. All the sweating is good for the detoxification and exfoliation of your body. It is important to go in hydrated, because it is easy to get dehydrated with the amount of sweating. Know that everyone is sweating just as much as you, if not more, and just let it happen. It will be difficult at first. It’s usually a good idea to try Hot Yoga after you have intermediate level experience with non-heated Yoga. Attempting the complex stretches in the heat is an intense experience that can lead to soreness. After your first class, going back for your second class as soon as possible afterward is best so your body can get used to stretching under the heat. Learning to trust your body and let go of control can be difficult physically and mentally, but that is the good thing about Hot Yoga; it is a rewarding challenge. It's called a practice for a reason. It builds strength in every muscle group. This can help runners, and people with back problems. It also provides stress relief. The muscles, tendons, ligaments, joints, organs, glands, tissues, bones [...]
