Practicing Iron Hour consistently can help improve your upper body and core strength, which can help improve your balance in your original hot yoga and vinyasa classes.
A stronger core does more than help your balance in Standing Head to Knee and Standing Bow. It can help give you strength to twist in Triangle and Spine Twist too.
Like original hot yoga, vinyasa works the whole body, but the emphasis on the upper body is more pronounced, thanks to chaturangas and planks.
To be fair, both original hot yoga and vinyasa can help you build a strong core too, but the addition of weights in Iron Hour can add that little extra when you need to change up your routine.
Even practicing your grip on the weights in Iron Hour can refine smaller details of your practice like sealing your hands together in Half Moon and Standing Separate Leg Head to Knee.
If you haven’t tried Iron Hour, make plans to soon! We offer it three times a week at Sterling — 8:15 a.m. on Sundays, Tuesdays and Thursdays.
Take at least one class a week for a month, and see your strength improve!
