Heat Shock Proteins & Hot Yoga
Are you looking for yoga near me in Brisbane? Look no further than Harlow, where we offer a unique space with different level and variety of classes. Our hot yoga classes, in particular, offer a host of benefits that go beyond your typical mat session.
According to Dr. Rhonda Patrick, a leading biohacker, engaging in hypothermic conditioning or changing the body’s temperature through heat can increase endurance, blood flow to the heart, muscles, and skin, improve brain function, and activate the central nervous system. In fact, a study showed that engaging in 30-minute sauna sessions twice a week after an intense run can increase the distance runners can go by 32%.
Hot yoga can also help with mental clarity and retention. Dr. Patrick’s studies have shown that exercising in the heat can increase neurogenesis, which is the growth of new brain cells, and the survival of existing brain cells. It can also reduce depression and anxiety and increase muscle gain, growth hormone, and lifespan.
Moreover, recent research has revealed that heat shock proteins (HSPs) – proteins that the body produces in response to heat stress – may have significant health benefits. HSPs have been found to be involved in a variety of physiological processes, such as DNA repair, cell survival, and immune function. They have also been linked to a reduced risk of certain diseases, including Alzheimer’s and Parkinson’s.
And, if you push yourself to exhaustion in the heat, the benefits are even greater. If you want to experience these benefits, we recommend attending 2-4 hot yoga classes per week, or even more if hot yoga is your main source of exercise. And, if you really want to change your life in a short amount of time, face the heat challenge and attend hot yoga every day. Your heart, skin, body, mind, and soul will thank you for it.
