Some practitioners of yoga feel that heating the yoga studio helps to loosen muscles, which increases range of motion and enables instructors and students to move more deeply into each pose. Athletes who practice hot yoga speak to increased weight loss and healthy cardiovascular systems. Hot yoga differs from Bikram, another style of yoga that is practiced in a room heated to above 100 degrees Farenheit. Bikram yoga follows a specific standardized sequence of 26 different postures. Conversely, hot yoga postures do not generally follow a particular order and each pose may be modified by the instructor.
