Yoga Body Shop is Binghamton’s original hot yoga studio. However, being the original does not mean we are complacent. Yoga Body Shop is constantly engaging in educational opportunities and expanding our offerings to ensure that we remain the premiere yoga community in the Greater Binghamton area. We are excited to announce that yogis will find 26 + 2 Hot Yoga in the Yoga Body Shop class schedule starting this week!
The 26 + 2 Hot Yoga practice, formerly known as Bikram Yoga, is series of 26 asana poses designed to scientifically warm and stretch muscles, ligaments and tendons in the order in which they should be stretched. The class is calibrated for the stiffest beginners, but yogis of all skill levels will find it challenging. The sequence, principles and practice methods incorporated into the 26 + 2 Hot Yoga class creates transformative benefits for both mind and body.
Yogis will relax, strengthen, reshape and even find healing over time with 26 + 2 Hot Yoga. More specific benefits yogis may find include the following:
- Detoxification—The body’s largest organ is your skin. The skin works to eliminate toxins through perspiration. The sweat that occurs in the heated environment of a 26 +2 class removes waste from the body on a surface level through the pores and on a deeper organic level by carrying waste away from the kidneys and liver.
- Flexibility—Stretching is an effective way to increase flexibility. Stretching warm muscles is more effective and lets the yogi get deeper into poses. Yogis often find that the heat incorporated into 26 + 2 classes help improve range of motion, prevent injuries during exercise and aid in healing from previous injuries.
- Immunity—An increase in core temperature increases white blood cell production that protects the human body against viruses and bacteria. In addition, stress weakens the immune system, so activities that reduce stress like 26 + 2 Hot Yoga also reduce vulnerability to illness.
