While most heated yoga studios use forced air to heat their rooms, Anahata Yoga Center uses FAR infrared heat, which provides a therapeutic, deep penetrating, detoxifying form of heat which expels toxins, heavy metals and pollutants from the body, providing significant benefits. Can’t imagine being heated from within? Imagine practicing yoga outside on a clear and sunny afternoon, minus the sun in your eyes. Relaxed, content, and full of energy, right?
Infrared light is NOT ultraviolet light… in fact, it has an opposite effect of UV. It diminishes fine lines and wrinkles. It’s the healthy light that allows plants to photosynthesize, or make energy to sustain and grow. Infrared light rays heat you from the inside… it’s a deep penetrating heat that warms you, and not just the surrounding air. It’s the ultimate detox.
FAR infrared heat promotes a stronger immune system, better cardiovascular health, and speeds up the healing process in soft tissue injuries such as tears, pulls, and sprains. As a beauty treatment, the penetrating heat of far infrared heat therapy works wonders by reducing the appearance of crow’s feet, fine lines, and wrinkles. In addition to helping heal scars, wounds, and cuts, it also smooths skin’s texture, lessens coarseness, and reduces pore size.
Let’s see what practicing in a FIR (far infrared ray) yoga studio does for your body…

The heat has an added benefit of greater gains of flexibility.
