Can Hot Yoga Really Change the Shape of Your Body?

We love all the benefits of yoga – mind, body, and soul. We believe it’s a life-long practice with endless benefits, seen and unseen, but we’re not naive! We know what you really want to know – can yoga really change the way my body looks for the better?

Does a regular yoga practice help with changes to your body composition and shape like you see in traditional weight training or cardio-based fitness routines? Can I get a healthy, toned body from practicing yoga? Read on – you may be surprised at what yoga can do for you!

How Yoga Can Shape Your Body

When yoga is introduced into your fitness routine, you can expect to see plenty of positive changes – inside and out. While many people may not exactly think of yoga as a fat-burner, it definitely has the ability to help with fat loss, increase muscle tone, lengthen and strengthen, and build flexibility.

And don’t underestimate the power of HEAT! At Yoga Studio 90, our hot yoga classes help amplify all the benefits of yoga by bringing the SWEAT – helping you burn off extra calories, stretch and lengthen those muscles even more, and detoxify the body for better blood flow, cell turnover, and recovery.

With regular practice, all of these things can lead to that long-and-lean body you dream of! Don’t believe us?

And There’s Even More Benefits of Yoga!

Practicing yoga regularly has many benefits beyond the body shaping. One thing yoga does is strengthen your spine, lower back, and abdominal muscles. This alone allows you to stand taller! Individuals who described their appearance as short, squatty and plump have seen incredible results in changing the shape of their body simply from the lengthening effects of yoga.

And the beauty in yoga is that you are strengthening and elongating all muscle groups, creating a long, strong and healthy body. Our members share with us how practicing through the years allows them to stand tall and confident in everything from meetings, weddings to the court. 

Don’t underestimate the power of the poses either – every movement we go through in a hot yoga class is intentional, and has the power to influence internal body functions like cortisol levels, reducing stress, promoting relaxation and improving overall mental health and wellbeing.

Positive Changes Will Happen If You Stay With It.

As you can see, the benefits are truly countless in a regular yoga practice! Your ideal body is within reach with hot yoga if you commit to putting in the work, and you’ll get the added mental and spiritual benefits as well.
