Hot Yoga Rockaway Beach
What are the benefits? During these 90-minute classes, students can lose weight, detoxify their systems and de-stress after a rough day. Heating the room helps to accelerate the benefits of the yoga stretches and may heal injuries, as well.
Anita Ruderman, long-time Rockaway resident and proprietor of Hot Yoga Rockaway Beach, says beginners are welcome, as the class is perfect for any level of fitness and flexibility. Just bring an open mind and your smile and be prepared to sweat!
For those who have never tried yoga, that’s perfectly fine. You don’t need any yoga experience flexibility or strength. Each class is a series of stretching postures, repeated twice and held for a specified amount of time. This works the entire body from the inside out, stimulating the glands and regulating the digestive and nervous systems.
Through regular practice, students of yoga can regain vitality, energy and inner peace. Breathing, blood circulation, concentration, balance and posture will also improve. Hydration before the start of the class is essential. Yoga mats (which are available for purchase/rent at the studio) are required for the class.
