Yoga Burn Review

The intense heat can also have a meditative effect. The temperature can be overwhelming, especially for new initiates. The result is that practitioners are incapable of focusing on any other thoughts beyond the heat. All mental energy is focused on persisting through the heat. Once this is achieved the mind is effectively cleared of thought, allowing for focused yoga practice.


One of the most renowned methods of hot yoga is that known as Bikram yoga. It tends to be practised at a higher temperature than most other types of heated yoga. Where other types of hot yoga are practised in a room just at or below body temperature, Bikram is usually practised about 5 degrees higher at 41 degrees centigrade. The humidity is ideally kept to 40% to allow easier perspiration. A class consists of 26 poses and 2 breathing exercises. These are done over the course of a 90 minute class.
