Any form of exercise is beneficial, but the popularity of hot yoga is growing for many reasons.
The benefit of better balance, more flexibility and core strength all add to the list of things hot yoga can help with.
Hot Yoga is gaining new clientele, even in major sports such as the National Hockey League.
"There is so much more to hot yoga then people think. The benefits are never ending and there isn't any excuse for anyone to not be able to do it. I have seen people of all ages and body types, with injuries or in the best shape be able to accomplish any one of our classes," said Irene Bobochel, manager at Pure Yoga.
Hot yoga is practiced in a heated room, usually maintained at a temperature of around 95 to 100 degrees Fahrenheit. 
Adding the heat room, allows more blood flow, more circulation into the joints and allows for increased stretching.
In a relaxing atmosphere, hot yoga also shows great benefits to mental focus.
