Infrared heaters convert light directly to heat, warming nearby objects without raising the air temperature. So in other words, a student in an infrared class absorbs heat but the surrounding air does not. Infrared heat penetrates deep into the body tissues in a way that a traditional heat cannot. This deep tissue warmth is great for sore muscles, stiffness and joint pain, especially the kind of chronic pain that comes from arthritis. Because the air itself does not get hot with infrared heat, it is suitable for people with respiratory issues who find it uncomfortable or even risky to go in a heated yoga class. Students also enjoy the benefits of the class at a lower temperature than in a traditional hot yoga class. What are the benefits of Infrared Warm Yoga?
