Jal Yoga is a spacious yoga studio offering a number of unusual yoga classes – one of which is infrared yoga.
Frequent yoga practitioners may be quick to dismiss infrared yoga as another gimmick or simply just hot yoga masquerading under a different name. It’s not.
Those who’ve stepped into a hot yoga room are no strangers to the heated (and often stuffy) atmosphere of the room where temperatures hit almost 40°C. Infrared yoga is significantly cooler at 36°C but the main difference lies in the way heat is distributed. Infrared heat warms up your body – and only your body – without heating the surrounding air. That means you don’t have to struggle with a stuffy nose and fainting spells which can occur in a regular heated room. At Jal Yoga, each of its 28 mats has an infra heat panel directly above to ensure the infrared heat directly permeates your body – thus alleviating aches, increasing circulation, clearing skin issues, fighting incoming colds and eliminating flu.
