What is Hot Yoga?
Hot Yoga is a series of specialized yoga poses performed in a heated room, which is usually maintained at a temperature of 100 to 105 degrees. As you can imagine, a vigorous yoga session at this temperature promotes profuse sweating which rids the body of toxins. It also makes the body very warm, and therefore more flexible.
Students of all ages who regularly practice yoga notice an increase in energy, strength, balance, flexibility and mental focus. The body is flushed of toxins, leaving a deep sense of relaxation and well-being.
What is Sumits Yoga?
Sumits Yoga was created by Sumit Banerjee based on his own years of experience practicing and teaching various yoga styles including Bikram and Vinyasa. The class integrates the core principles of traditional hot Bikram yoga and power flow which is Ashtanga inspired.
Sumits Yoga is a creatively effective combination of static poses, vinyasa flow, upbeat music, and heat. Purposefully designed and proven to strengthen, heal, and rejuvenate. Whether you’re brand new to yoga, or you’re looking to supplement a regular yoga practice, Sumits truly offers something for everyone. The series stays the same each class, but no two practices are ever identical, the challenge is yours to create!
Sumit encourages all students – newcomers and experienced students alike – to begin and maintain a consistent practice regardless of the style preferred. Sumit says, “You’ll benefit from class by your effort regardless of how far or deep you get. As long as you are feeling it and you are breathing calmly, you’re practicing correctly."
Sumit Hot Yoga is the only studio in Springfield where all instructors are certified in hot yoga instruction by Sumit Banerjee and by the Yoga Alliance. You can feel confident that the instruction you receive will be safe and have you in correct alignment during each and every posture!
