Our facility was designed to promote the healthiest and strongest practice possible.
INFRARED HEATING SYSTEM
While most heated yoga studios use forced air or electric panels to heat their rooms, Sweaty Buddha Yoga uses infrared heat.
Infrared heaters convert light directly to heat, warming nearby objects without raising the air temperature. This allows a student in an infrared class to absorb heat while the surrounding air does not. This type of heat is most like natural sunlight. In fact, 80% of the light that makes it to Earth is infrared, it is a form of light that is easily processed by our bodies. Since the air itself does not get hot with infrared heat, it is suitable and tolerable for students especially those with respiratory issues who find it uncomfortable or even risky to go in a heated yoga class.
Infrared heat differs greatly from, say, a heater that heats the air in a room, because it actually is absorbed by the skin and has a greater effect on increased circulation, muscle flexibility and detoxification. As your body absorbs infrared waves, molecules begin to vibrate, causing them to expel the toxins, fat and impurities from your cells into your blood stream. These will then be released from your body. The result is an incredible cleansing effect at a cellular level. Your muscles and internal organs will be gently warmed. This form of heat is perfectly safe. Hospitals use infrared heat to keep premature babies warm.
