Hot Yoga at Your Body Center
Hot Yoga is a slower paced yoga in the a heated room and is GREAT for beginners!!
Hot Yoga benefits your body by assisting your body in sweating out toxins while allowing you, the practitioner, to safely come deeper into asanas (poses or stretches). It also benefits your body and psyche by means of meditation and works exceedingly well to achieve harmony helping the mind act in synchronization with the body.
By performing hot yoga you engage your body in focused deep breathing using heat to sweat out and detoxify, removing impurities. The direct result is the removal of anxiety and toxins from the body, as well as the additional benefit of weight loss.
All classes offered at YBC are open to all fitness levels. We offer modifications for more advanced postures that allow our classes to be challenging for both beginner and more advanced yogis.

Heat can serve an important role in yoga. The authentic practice of hot yoga is known to restore energy, revitalize the muscles and joints, and can help prevent degeneration of the body from disease. Heat warms and relaxes the entire body, promoting suppleness, relaxation, and elongation of muscle tissue. Performing yoga in a heated environment can also help you get into a deeper stretch as well as aid in avoiding injury.
Regular practice of hot yoga can improve muscle tone, aid in weight loss and normalization, and help you enjoy good health and optimal well-being. Some of the many benefits that heat can provide include:
