Hot yoga is very similar to traditional yoga styles. The principal difference is that the postures are practiced in a studio temperature of 40°C. This creates a more cardiovascular workout with a strong focus on breathing, alignment, flexibility, and strength. The hot room warms the muscles right from the beginning of the practice, so you are less likely to injure yourself. In addition, your muscles are more flexible so you are able to deepen your stretch in the postures.
During this retreat, you will be accommodated at the apartment which is within 20 to 25 minutes walking distance from the studio. All apartments are equipped with cooking and laundry facilities, heating, and air conditioning.
Yogalinda's hot yoga teacher training courses are certified by the Yoga Alliance. When the course is completed, you will hold a 200-hour certified yoga instructor license and be able to teach hot Vinyasa, hot Hatha, and regular temperature yoga in studios anywhere in the world. The daily sessions will include a one and half hour break. No classes will be held on Saturdays.
Vinyasa Flow moves steadily from pose to pose in a sequences of movements linked or associated together synchronized with breath, often pausing to hold poses for various lengths of time while maintaining the rhythmic flow of the breath.
Unlike Ashtanga Vinyasa, each class usually offers a different sequence of poses, although most use some form of Surya Namaskara A and B. Most Hatha Vinyasa Flow classes apply Iyengar alignment principles, energetic actions within poses, and use of props. Unlike most approaches to Hatha yoga, which have a fixed system, Hatha Vinyasa is not a system. This allows creativity in sequencing asanas and offers a diverse array of themes in different classes. There is no hierarchy, no leading guru as in Anusara, Ashtanga, Bikram, Iyengar, and many other approaches.
