Hot yoga refers to yoga exercises performed under hot and humid conditions. Often associated with the style devised by Bikram Choudhury, hot yoga is now used to describe any number of yoga styles that use heat to increase an individual's flexibility in the poses. Hot yoga is a form of moderate exercise. The temperature of the room varies typically between 87 °F (31 °C) and 104 °F (40 °C). While doing hot yoga, your body is producing sweat because of the extremities of the temperatures. Hot yoga involves both static holds and flow, which both lengthens and contracts specific body parts. During hot yoga, there you will experience internal heat and external heat. Therefore, you may sweat a lot. This results in losing water weight.  In colder climates, hot yoga often seeks to replicate the heat and humidity of India where yoga originated.
