Working up a sweat with hot yoga

YOGA has never been so hot. The smoking fitness trend has arrived with hot yoga instructor Trudi Miller offering the relaxing pastime in both Tweed Heads and Pottsville.

Miss Miller described the sizzling trend as a way to improve overall quality of life.

“It's a form of stress relief, it improves circulation and focus, increases oxygen and nutrients in the body, balances metabolism and improves digestion,” Miss Miller said.

“People of any age can do it; the heat allows you to focus and clear your mind of the day you have had, you feel grounded afterwards and it helps you to focus on your daily life.

“Normally the room would be heated to 37 degrees but we will start at 30 degrees and change the heat depending on who is at the class.”

Classes will take place at the Pottsville Beach Neighbourhood Centre on Tuesdays and Thursdays starting at 6pm.

The Tweed Heads classes will start on January 31at the Presbyterian Hall at 6pm.
