Infrared Hot Yoga – What Is Infrared Heat?
Infrared Hot Yoga at Yoga by Blisstopia
Infrared heaters convert light directly to heat, warming nearby objects without raising the air temperature. This type of heat is most like natural sunlight. In fact, 80% of the light that makes it to Earth is infrared, making it a form of light that is easily processed and absorbed by our bodies.
Since Infrared heat does not heat the air, it reduces the circulation of bacteria as well as keeps the room from getting stuffy in the midst of your practice.
What makes infrared radiant heating feel so different than traditional forced air systems is the way the heat is distributed. Forced air can make your yoga sesh stuffy and leave you feeling dried out, a session with infrared heat feels clean and invigorating. The advantage of infrared radiant heat is that surface temperatures such as a floor temperature can feel 3-8 degrees warmer than the air temperature. This includes people; the direct warmth on people’s bodies can feel soothing and can help boost flexibility.
