Hot yoga. The power of sweat.

Hot yoga teacher Luma Zaki explains the benefits

Luma Zaki is a highly respected hot yoga, Ashtanga and yoga for athletes instructor. She teaches six classes weekly here at The Medicine Garden. We caught up with her after a particularly sweaty hot yoga class to find out why we should all join ‘The Sweat Set’.

Sweat. For most people the word has negative connotations. But the benefits of sweating during exercise, like hot yoga, might change your mind. Sweat is a powerful reaction to physical exertion. It’s a clear sign that you are working hard and pushing your physical limits. Take a look at the list of benefits below and chances are you won’t be wiping away your perspiration so fast the next time you start to glow….
