Hot Yoga at the Glasgow Yoga Centre Is Fun
We do simple Yoga postures for Hot Yoga – nothing that can hurt or injure you. The postures are maintained motionless at maximum effort, (which is a primary principle of Hatha Yoga), not in continuous movement.
Although the first emphasis is on the correctness and safety of the postures, the class is challenging, and you will have to make demands of yourself. It requires tremendous concentration, careful listening to the teacher's instructions, patience, determination, trust, and discipline. As these are required of you, they also develop within you.
Hot Yoga can assist in reducing the symptoms of chronic illness and injury, and is an excellent preventative and rehabilitative tool. If you are looking for an all-over mind and body workout then Hot Yoga is for you. Be prepared to raise your heart rate sweat, strain, laugh, and do more for your body and general well-being than you ever imagined possible.
Just Do You Best
You'll find you want to do this practice. It's fun. It works. You'll start organizing your schedule to fit it in. Remember that this yoga is powerful and challenging, pace yourself; don't force yourself; and don't expect to be perfect overnight! (If you're experiencing health or emotional issues, yoga will support you, so come as often as you can). It's our job to push you to achieve your best; it is your responsibility to know what is enough for your body on any given day. Progress is a slow, sure, but an enjoyable process! Your improvement will depend entirely on the time and effort you put in. Respect your limits (without babying yourself), and expect those limits to change. Just do your best. The harder this yoga is for you, the more you need it and the more you will get out of it. There is no need to show off, nor is there a need to be embarrassed about your level of practice. The secret in the success is in the FREQUENCY of your practice. All the hard work pays off. The effort you put into this yoga will return to you in many ways. It's the very best thing you can do for your health, your body, your vitality, and your sense of well being.
