Why Hot Yoga?
Hot Yoga... Is it just all hot air?
Hot Yoga is a powerful exercise system. One thats been around for a long time, and with millions of people gaining results, it sure is here to stay! Hot Yoga is unlike any other yoga.
Hot yoga is not all about stretching. Its more akin to a Spirtual endeavor. I relate it to a Tony Robbins Firewalk!
In Hot Yoga at Yoga Oasis,
you are inspired & encouraged to face your fears and to live your best life ever!
Hot Yoga is a powerful healing system that is designed to heat up the body and to increase oxygen levels in the bodies tissues.
Increased heat is called hyperthermia.
The science of hyperthermia became grounded in the first few decades of the twentieth century when some of the biological effects of elevated body temperature were elucidated and attempts were made to understand and control the therapeutic application of heat. Numerous devices were developed to produce elevated temperatures of the body, by a variety of physical means. After a shift in focus to local and regional hyperthermia, there is now a resurgence of interest in systemic hyperthermia for treatment of cancer, as well as other systemic diseases. Whole-body hyperthermia treatment is now carried out at several university centers in the United States, and Europe, where controlled clinical trials are being carried out.

How do we heat the room at Yoga Oasis?
we use a FIR INFARED heat system that is unlike anything else.
FIR INFARED heat raises your body's core temperature and dilates your capillaries, which improves your circulation, and increases lymph flow. When you have all of this, it is incredible to see the health benefits that come with it. Many health problems will simply disappear!
The heaters are the only type of heater that uses the same patented far infrared generator technology used in the Sky Eye Radiator, which has received medical device certification from the FDA.
“Detoxify or Die” ~ Restoring Total Wellness and Our Natural Healing Power Dr Sherry Rogers, a leading environmental medicine authority outlines the scope of chemical pollution in our bodies in her book “Detoxify or Die” and shows in detail how to prevent disease and treat chemical overload. She wrote “…the far infrared sauna is far safer and infinitely more tolerable, because it uses a heat energy that penetrates tissues, triggering mobilization of chemicals from subcutaneous fat storage, directly into sweat” and adds that “between 4 to 14 microns in the FIR spectrum fall most of the rays that are the safest and most vital to health and healing.
OUR sauna heaters are from the MOMENTUM98 website.

There are different types of heat! Fir InFARED and NEAR INFARED. they are not the same.
The ones we use at Yoga Oasis are FIR FAR infared tecnology.
The far infrared energy resonates with the water molecules which causes the water molecules to pulsate. It is like a massage of the cells in the body. This causes the cells to release their waste products and toxins. This pulsating also reduces the size of the water molecules which then because blood cells are comprised mainly of water, it also reduces the size of the blood cells. It also helps to dilate (expand) the blood vessels. So it's like if you expand a 4 lane freeway into an 8 lane freeway and you change the semi-trucks into mini-vans, you speed up the traffic.
With all this going on, you increase the core temperature of the body. This activates and mobilizes the lymphatic system of the body and this gets all the toxins out of the body. Not just through the sweat but also through the lungs, the colon, and the kidneys.
When Karen Russell sent us the report about heavy metal toxicity, the manufactures of the Relax sauna in Taiwan decided to do a study. They tested people's urine before and after using the far infrared sauna and they found out that people's levels of heavy metals would be higher after using the sauna. This is because they are eliminating the stored toxins from their fat cells.
Read below to better understand the story of how the far infrared sauna was invented
The Japanese government commissioned the company which makes the Relax sauna in Taiwan to find an energy which would approximate what happens when you go to the hot springs in Japan. This goes back to the warrior days of when warriors would go to the hot springs in Japan to heal their wounds. There is a healing energy there.
Each sauna has 2 radiators and in each radiator there are 20 of these semi-conductor chips. So this company created the semi-conductor chip which is in the far infrared sauna. It took a team of scientists 10 years to come up with a way to create this same energy that comes from the hot springs.
