Welcome to Longevita Hot Yoga

At Longevita Pilates & Yoga Studio we believe anyone with the right attitude and in the right environment can do yoga. Our commitment to you is to provide caring, well-trained instructors who understand yoga, safety, and the health and wellness benefits one can gain from yoga. Each of our instructors is registered with Yoga Alliance and they spend time refining their practice and craft by continuing their education in yoga, taking classes and workshops throughout the United States.

I am a beginner where do I start?

At Longevita Pilates & Yoga Studio we offer a variety of classes for beginners. If you are brand new to yoga and or hot yoga, but don’t want to try the heat, any of our non-heated yoga classes would be a good place to start. If you want to jump right into the heated room: Warm Yoga: Restorative or Hot Yoga: Tone & Stretch  are classes that are appropriate for all levels of yoga. Remember to let the instructor know you are new, and if you have any injuries or concerns he/she should be aware of.

FAQ

Practicing yoga in the heat is becoming more and more popular within the different styles of yoga. At Longevita Pilates & Yoga Studio we offer a variety of classes in the heated room. Some classes will be heated to 105 and some classes we keep around 85-95.

Arrive 15 min prior to class starting. This will give you time to sign in, set up your mat, and let the instructor know if you have any injuries or concerns. Please bring a bottle of water, your mat and towel to class. Wear comfortable, fitted clothes that you can sweat in. If you forget, we have mats and towels available to rent. Drink plenty of water at least 2 hours before class and try to keep an empty stomach two hours before class. The recommendations for hydration before, during and after exercise are as follow:

  • Hydration starts the day before. Be sure to drink plenty of water the day prior to class! Make water drinking a fun habit by adding lemon, cucumber or oranges to your water for variety and added hydration.
  • Daily intake of 8-10 glasses of water (8oz) for normal activity.At least two hours prior to exercise drink 16 oz of water without caffeine.
  • During exercise, drink frequently and early before you actually are thirsty. Your goal is to replenish fluids at the same rate you are sweating. The maximal rate of replacement is between 20-40 oz per hour.
  • After exercise again hydrate: water and coconut water are good choices to replenish after class.

One answer is “thixotrophy”. Thixotrophy is the notion that a gel-like substance becomes more fluid when it is stirred up and more solid when it sits without being disturbed. The heat acts as the “stirring up” force that allows the major gel-like substance in the human body (e.g., connective tissue/fascia) to loosen up or “melt” in the heat. Once the connective tissue becomes pliable, it becomes easier for the body to move. This connective tissue is everywhere in the body–it’s like the packing material for every muscle, bone, nerve, blood vessel and organ of the body right down to the cellular level. So, having a well-rounded heat offers the body more pliability.

Another benefit of the heat is sweating. Many cultures promote the notion of a daily sweat to “wring out” toxins in the body. Yes, some toxins can be excreted through the skin in a hot yoga practice, but a healthy diet, lots of water, and a regular yoga practice will be the winning combination for really getting rid of toxic build up within the body.

There are several more benefits of yoga such as stress reduction, increased blood flow, flexibility, strength and balance. The heat aids in detoxification, increases blood flow to speed up metabolic processes of vital organs, glands and mobilizing toxins for elimination. Heat also stimulates fat receptors, activating fat stores, facilitating fat loss and releasing fat soluble toxins. Additional responses of the heat include the stimulation of white blood cell production, boosting the immune system, promoting relaxation, and an increase in healing injuries and disease symptoms. Overall the body’s response to heat strengthens, detoxifies and heals which in turn creates a sense of health and well-being.

You will find that in every class no matter what style can be challenging. All the postures combine flexibility, strength and balance to work the entire body. Your heart rate will go up! With dedication and commitment many people have seen weight loss, muscle tone and strength.

How often should I practice?

Daily practice rejuvenates body, mind and spirit. Two to three days a week is a good start to see benefits, but if you truly want to see life changing benefits 4 or more times a week is recommended.

You have come to the right practice. Flexibility, coordination and balance come with practice.  Yoga will allow you to lengthen and expand, and release tight muscles. From the moment you step on the mat, you will begin to notice in your outside life that balance and coordination come more naturally and with greater ease. Fun fact … balance is the first thing we lose after we have had children or turn 30, but it’s something we can work on and gain greater balance throughout our lives.

Balanced body = balanced mind = ease, health, longevity!

We look forward to serving all your health and wellness needs at Longevita Pilates & Yoga Studio!
