Infrared Heated Yoga Classes

The Ashtanga Yoga Workshop
is the only yoga studio in Devon & Cornwall
that uses Infrared heating technology

Imaging sitting on your favourite rock on midsummer morning, closing your eyes and lifting your face to feel the sun's rays warm you from the inside and promote that unmistakable feeling of wellbeing, relaxation and happiness?

What you are actually feeling are beneficial and harmless Infrared rays, which all animals on earth depend upon for warmth. By using state-of-the-art technology our Infrared heating panels work in exactly the same way. Unlike traditional convectional heating systems, which rely on heating and circulating the air around you, infrared panels emit infrared heat that warm you from the inside out.

How Does Infrared Heat Work?

Infrared heaters convert light directly to heat, warming nearby objects without raising the air temperature. This allows yoga students in our infrared heater studio to absorb heat while the surrounding air does not. Infrared heat is most like natural sunlight. In fact, 80% of the light that makes it to Earth is infrared, making it a form of light that is easily absorbed by our bodies.

As your body absorbs infrared waves, molecules begin to vibrate, causing them to start to expel the toxins, fat and impurities from your cells into your blood stream. These will then be released from your body in the form of sweat. The result is an incredible cleansing effect at a cellular level. Your muscles and internal organs will be gently warmed.

As you walk into our Studio you will feel a gentle heat that will increase as students move through class. Also, our Studio is virtually silent as our heating system makes absolutely no noise. This allows the students to concentrate on the teacher's instructions and their practice.

Additional Health Benefits

When the body absorbs infrared heat it has been shown that it increases blood circulation, boosts immune functionality, detoxifies and reduces joint stiffness. In fact Infrared saunas have been used for many years in the treatment of joint disorders and pain relief.

Put simply this means our amazing heaters will help to ease your stiff body and aching joints during your yoga class with us.

Furthermore, infrared heating is beneficial for people with asthma or bronchial ailments, because its unique heating method does not create air currents that increase dust circulation.

Soft tissue injuries such as tears, pulls and sprains have also been shown to benefit from Infrared heat.

Other health benefits include:

  • Strengthening of the Cardiovascular System
  • Improved Skin Appearance
  • Enhanced Collagen Production
  • Reduction of Cellulite
