Yoga Republic, Choeng Thale
If you’re one of those who like it hot when it comes to yoga, you’ll enjoy sweating it out at Yoga Republic. Infrared heating system is installed in the studio to provide heat in an eco-friendly and non-allergenic manner. Such systems also stimulate an anti-inflammatory response in the body, thereby decreasing the sensation of pain, as well as speeding up the process of soft muscle tissue repair in the body.
Two forms of yoga, Hatha and Vinyasa, are taught at the center. Temperatures for the Vinyasa yoga classes are set at about thirty degrees, while temperatures for Hatha yoga classes may rise up to a whooping thirty-eight degrees. You’ll be working up a sweat here, so be sure to keep hydrated by taking plenty of water and fresh juices (available at the in-house juice bar) after an invigorating yoga session.
