How we became Soul Sweat Hot Yoga
Soul Sweat is based on the teachings of Sumit's Hot Yoga, a yoga sequence that was created by Sumit Banerjee based on his own years of experience practicing and teaching various yoga styles including Bikram and Vinyasa. His sequence and style of teaching reinforces his primary objectives as a teacher: helping others to realize the powerful wellness benefits of yoga including a stronger, toned and more flexible body and an improved state of mind encouraging relaxation, self-acceptance and awareness.
Classes at Soul Sweat Hot Yoga flow to music through a sequence of both balancing and energizing asanas (poses) in a heated practice environment. In a yoga class, you practice poses that require stretching and compression of the joints, muscles, ligaments and other supporting structures of the body. Your body naturally protects itself from physical exertion by generating heat from the inside muscles outwards. We start with the heat up front…providing that extra protection from the very first poses. Another added benefit is that your body burns fat more effectively. It’s not uncommon for our students practicing regularly to lose inches of shape in a relatively short time.
Soul Sweat encourages all students – newcomers and experienced students alike – to begin and maintain a consistent practice regardless of the style preferred. 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.
Why Hot Yoga?
Soul Sweat understands the healing benefits of heat. The body protects itself from injury during physical exertion by generating heat inside the muscles. When the heat is presented upfront, the body is protected even further. Our classes consist of yoga sequences and postures scientifically designed to work the whole body — internal organs, systems of the body, muscles, joints and glands. Our classes are heated between 98 to 108 Degrees Fahrenheit, depending on the class. The heat allows the body to detoxify and cleanse through sweating, Hot Yoga also makes the body more pliable in the postures resulting in restructuring and properly aligning the body. Most postures are basic and easily understood by a beginner but are always challenging — students can practice the sequence of postures for a lifetime and be continuously challenged by class. Sweat, laugh, and do more for your health, body, and general well-being than you ever imagined possible. Benefits of our Fort Worth Hot Yoga include weight loss, flexibility, balance, strength, muscle tone, improving concentration, breathing, increased circulation, and alleviating back pain.
