Fewer Injuries

Hot yoga takes place in humid rooms between 95 and 105 degrees, and the high temperature makes it easier for your muscles to stretch as you perform different poses. Many people begin attending yoga classes to improve their overall flexibility, and you’ll find that hot yoga classes are a great way to further improve your flexibility. Flexible muscles are far less prone to injury than tight, unstretched muscles, so take up any form of yoga if you’re hoping to reduce your risk of strains or tears.

Improved Circulation 

Hot yoga classes have the potential to push you to your physical limits. While you may be able to do the majority of the poses in a hot yoga class under normal conditions, the hot and humid environment makes a typical yoga routine much more difficult. You’ll find that hot yoga delivers a great cardiovascular workout, and your body’s circulation will improve after several months of hot yoga sessions.

Weight Loss

As you might expect after reading the previous section, hot yoga is a great way to lose weight while toning your body. The cardiovascular demands of each session will burn more calories than a yoga session, and the amount of sweat your body produces during a typical session will also help you shed unwanted weight.

No matter what your exercise regimen is, it’s important to listen to your body and ensure that you stay safe during your sessions. Drink plenty of water before, during, and after hot yoga sessions, and you may even want to invest in a sports drink with sodium and electrolytes if you’re attending several classes a week. You can eat a light snack before arriving, but we discourage coming to a hot yoga session on a full stomach.

If you are over 50 (or over 90), it is the perfect time to start a yoga practice. Now. In fact, the Yoga Sutras, a text with 196 aphorisms compiled around 400 CE begins, “Now, the teachings of yoga.” The word “now” is so imperative. There is no sense of regret, no “Why didn’t I start sooner?” Now is the time you practice. Now is a perfect time.

7 Important Health Benefits Of Yoga For People Over 50

In fact, if you find yourself in some age you might classify as chronologically enriched, you have even more reason to practice. Here are some of the many benefits, right now:

1) Your balance will improve. Balance is all good and well when you are 20 and can show off your arm balance skills as your party trick. However, yoga works your proprioception, or your sense of your body in space. Without regular attention, this can diminish with age, but it doesn’t have to. With much of proprioception in your ankles, standing yoga poses ensure that you maintain your sense of balance. This may help you to walk gracefully for years to come.

2) Yoga strengthens bones. Bones are not really something young people think about, yet men and women have their maximum bone density at the age of 30. After that, it is all about maintenance, and some studies have suggested that yoga can help with gaining bone in the spine and the hip. Strength building yoga is an important part of this equation.

3) Your memory will stay sharp. No one wants to become the person who can’t remember where their keys are on a regular basis. Yoga provides added benefits in visual-spatial memory, with one study claiming that it fared better than crossword puzzles. Consider it fitness for your brain.

4) Yoga can protect your joints. As with any exercise, it can also harm your joints, so moderation and a qualified teacher are key. Keeping the fluidity of your joints may feel like a bonus when you are young, but as you get older you will notice it more, especially in the morning. Not only will yoga boost the synovial fluid to your joints, but it will also train surrounding tiny muscles to help stabilize the load.

5) Yoga can provide weight loss benefits. Yoga has a host of benefits, such as normalizing digestion, boosting the metabolism and toning muscles. All of these things can help with weight loss and yoga’s mindful training may help you to recognize when you are eating straight out of the bag of chips. Midlife weight gain has causes, and by dealing with some of them head-on you will be less likely to carry excess weight.

6) Yoga can aid with menopausal discomfort. Regular yoga practice is not going to cure all that ails you, but according to some studies, yoga may relieve some symptoms of menopause, including fewer hot flashes. (I think most women would sign up at the words “fewer hot flashes.”)

7) Yoga can moderate chronic pain. Chronic pain does become more common as we age, but this does not mean you are doomed to suffer. A study published in Annals of Internal Medicine found that for people with chronic lower back pain, yoga increased mobility more than standard medical care. The less pain you are in, the more you will be likely to move. And the more you move, the less pain you are likely to be in. You see where I am going with this.
