Is Hot Yoga really better than regular Yoga?

Many say that Hot Yoga is better for you than regular Yoga for weight loss and flexibility. The theory is that the higher the temperature, the harder the body has to work out, to achieve the same results.  Actually, there is nothing to back that up.  Researchers at the University of Wisconsin-La Crosse, who monitored two dozen healthy adults during regular and hot yoga classes, found no difference in the increase in their core temperature or heart rate between groups.  Experts say the same physical benefits of muscular strength, endurance, flexibility and balance could be achieved from a standard class, at comfortable temperatures.  So now it will just come down to preference at this and to each their own!

Enjoy your day!
