First things first: Oxygen Yoga & Fitness's far-infrared yoga classes are warm. Their innovative heating system boosts the temperature to a beach-like balminess without the sweltering oppressiveness found in many hot-yoga studios. However, this heat does more than just encourage a little sweat. It warms the tissues, quickening circulation as the heart rate increases. It also works in concert with yoga's slow, intense stretches, increasing flexibility while triggering and strengthening the immune system. Plus, the infrared waves can be absorbed by the body's cells, potentially easing the appearance of cellulite and ridding bodies of more toxins than traditional sweat-based purges.
