Hot yoga is practised in rooms heated up to 100 degrees, the high temperature enhancing muscle suppleness and releasing toxins from the body. Practising hot yoga regularly is believed to be an effective treatment for a wide variety of complaints, including back pain, sports injuries, insomnia, and stress. This book sets out all the preparatory information needed to understand the principles of Hot Yoga, from breathing techniques to the movement sequences. There is information on when, where and how often to practise, and what equipment is needed. The home- based instruction allows the student to practise wherever they feel comfortable – be it at home, on the beach or in the park – using a book that effortlessly guides through this energetic but nourishing style of yoga practice.
