At Bikram Yoga Hudson, sweating is a shower for the body, mind, and soul. Here, a 105-degree room summons beads of perspiration to oust pent-up toxins and stress. Though many students crave a traditional shower after the studio’s 90-minute classes, the heat eases their muscles into deep, relaxing stretches as they practice 26 Hatha poses and controlled breathing techniques. In addition to boosting strength, flexibility, and concentration, these exercises propel fresh oxygen through the body to promote wellness and fill deflated water wings. Certified instructors shepherd students of all levels through the workout, reminding them to hydrate frequently and pose at their own pace.
