How Does Infrared Heat Work?

As you walk into The Yoga Box you will feel a gentle heat that will increase as students move through class.  Our Cove Infrared heaters convert light directly into heat, warming nearby objects without raising the air temperature.  This allows a student in an infrared class to absorb heat, not the surrounding air.  This type of heat is most like natural sunlight.  In fact, 80% of the light that makes it to the Earth is infrared, making it a form of light that is easily processed by out bodies.  While most heated yoga studios use forced air to heat their rooms, Infrared heat differs greatly from a heater that heats the air in a room because it is actually absorbed by the skin and has a greater effect on increased circulation, muscle flexibility and detoxification.  As your body absorbs infrared waves, molecules begin to vibrate, causing them to start to expel the toxins, fat and impurities from your cells into your blood stream.  These will then be released from your body in the form of sweat resulting in an incredible cleansing effect at a cellular level.  Your muscles and internal organs will be gently warmed with this form of heat is perfectly safe.  Hospitals use infrared heat to keep premature babies warm.

Infrared heat provides a therapeutic, deep penetrating, detoxifying heat which expels toxins, heavy metals and pollutants from the body, providing significant benefits.  Additionally, infrared heat does not recirculate air thereby reducing the circulation of dirty air and bacteria.  Since the air itself does not get hot with infrared heat, it is suitable and tolerable for students especially those with respiratory issues who find it uncomfortable and risky to go into a heated yoga class.
