From therapeutic styles to power flow classes, yoga comes in many varieties to suit different needs. And for those wanting an extra challenge, we are turning up the heat and discussing the benefits of hot yoga.      

The Yoga Stand Owner Haley Bevers heats her classes to about 90 degrees using infrared panels. The room is also set at 50 to 60 percent humidity.

"The heart will have to work a little harder to raise your internal temperature. As the heart pumps, it produces sweating. It works to push the sweat out of the largest organ, the skin. At the same time it burns more calories because it takes longer for the heart rate to come down to cool down the body," Bevers explained.

Tying the breathing to movement is key.

All of this hard work can result in weight loss, greater circulation, lower blood pressure, better brain function, and peace-of-mind, according to Bevers.
