Why the heat?

WhyTheHeat215x324Because sweating is soooo good for you! It detoxifies and cleanses impurities and metabolic waste product from the inside out! Sweating improves cardiovascular health and the condition of our skin; which is the largest organ of elimination. It aids in weight loss; as the body is heated fat becomes water-soluble and exits the body through sweat burning as much as 300 calories per hour - just from sweating! It's also been shown to improve overall circulation and blood flow; improving energy, digestion and absorption and mental alertness as well as boosting immunity. The heat also encourages the gentle opening and releasing of the muscles as it speeds up the breakdown of glucose and fatty acids that make muscle more elastic and less susceptible to injury. It also enhances vasodilation so more blood is delivered to the muscle delivering more oxygen to the tissue aiding in the removal of waste products such as carbon dioxide and lactic acid.

At PurePower Yoga we heat the room to a comfortable 95 degrees in conjunction to a state of the art steam humidification system so the heat is never dry or burning. Our studio is regulated with a highly sensitive CO2 sensor and an air recovery unit which pumps in fresh air as oxygen levels fluctuate during class so you should never feel out of breath or light headed. Additionally, we've installed specialty UV sanitation bulbs in our duct work to prevent bacteria from forming and eliminating that funky smell often found in heated studios. Our Power Yoga Foundation Series is heated to a comfortable 85 degrees to allow newer students to acclimate to the heat and be more comfortable during the workshop component of the series.
