Hot Power Yoga
Definition - What does Hot Power Yoga mean?
Hot Power yoga combines aspects of two popular modern types of yoga classes – Hot yoga and Power yoga – but the term encompasses a wide range of class structures and yoga styles.
Like Hot yoga, Hot Power yoga is practiced in a heated room to loosen muscles and encourage sweating. The room temperature is usually between 85 and 100 degrees Fahrenheit – a bit lower than some other styles of Hot yoga. Like Power yoga, Hot Power yoga is a fitness-focused style that includes vinyasa linked with the breath and elements of Ashtanga yoga.
Yogapedia explains Hot Power Yoga
There's no particular structure or guidelines for a Hot Power yoga class. The practice varies from one yoga studio or instructor to another. In addition to being heated, the room may also have an elevated level of humidity.
In Hot Power yoga classes, as with other hot forms of yoga, the heated room is designed to keep muscles warm and more flexible, while the sweating removes toxins.

- Builds strength
- Improves physical and mental balance and flexibility
