People in Vegas can’t get enough of the heat it seems.
Some of the most highly rated yoga studios in Las Vegas are specifically “hot” studios where the studios are heated and humidified, with average temperatures in the classes at 92 degrees, but with some reaching over 100 degrees. While researchers still debate the merits of this style of hot yoga, many practitioners love it for the suppleness and ease of stretching it allows. According to the National Center for Complementary and Alternative Medicine (NCCAM), research has shown benefits of using yoga to treat chronic lower back pain, as well as anxiety and depression.
Always discuss any new exercises with your doctor, of course, but once you have his or her blessing, consider these highly-rated studios for yoga in Las Vegas.
