WHAT IS SAUNA YOGA®?
Sauna Yoga is like bathing in a sauna: simple, straightforward and natural. It combines the tranquility and silent atmosphere of sauna with relaxing and strengthening effects of yoga-based poses. Sauna Yoga is a silent workout in a silent space. Pampering warmth and gentle seated exercises help relieve tensions and calm the mind. You’ll experience freedom in your spine, flexibility in your joints and strength in your muscles.
Sauna Yoga series is a 30-minute exercise that consists of six poses all done seated on a sauna bench in a temperature of about 50-55 degrees Celsius. These so called sauna asanas strengthen the core and the lower body, increase the flexibility of the spine, the hips and the glutes. Sauna Yoga boosts metabolism, reduces stress and helps you sleep better.
Sauna Yoga is suitable for everyone regardless of age, size, gender or level of fitness – no prior experience of yoga is required. You can do Sauna Yoga poses by yourself or take an instructed class at a spa, hotel or gym offering Sauna Yoga.
