Hot yoga became popular after a study concluded the high heat was the main reason grandpas normally emerge from gym saunas feeling relaxed, limber, and totally nude. Experience the benefits of warmth without wishing for a blindfold with today's deal: for $39, you get one month of unlimited classes at Asana Body and Mind Hot Yoga in Ajax (up to a $150 value).
Asana yoga transforms rigid bodies into limber limbed flesh pretzels with rooms heated up to 37ºC and a series of challenging postures suitable for beginners and intermediates alike. While the heat helps purge toxins from the body, the yoga poses focus on body control and breathing to tap into inner energy channels, providing benefits such as weight loss, stress relief, and the ability to tame feral pigeons with a commanding glance. Asana Body and Mind maintains a comforting, serene atmosphere in a clean, eco-friendly studio with natural wood and cork flooring. Classes are scheduled daily, with multiple sessions held on weekdays.
Asana Body Mind Hot Yoga
Within Asana Body Mind Hot Yoga’s cozy studio, overhead panels generate the heat that makes students sweat in temperatures of up to 40 degrees Celsius. Since each panel warms only the students and their mats—rather than the air itself—the heat can better penetrate their skin, encouraging healthy perspiration to oust bodily toxins.
Employing the skills he learned while studying in the Indian province of Kerala, studio director Jason Campbell leads yogis through series of poses during a variety of hot-yoga classes, helping them hone their internal rhythm and stretch their bodies while building peace of mind. Jason and the other instructors walk students through each pose and adjust their postures as needed as they bend and sway atop springy cork floors designed to minimize the impact on joints and keep students afloat on the sea of sweat. To encourage a sense of community within the studio, students are encouraged to socialize after class, and staffers serve shots of nutrient-rich wheatgrass juice upon request before and after each session.
