While the physical benefits gained from the Original Hot 90 can’t be overstated, but it is just as transformational mentally and emotionally. Here’s why:
Breathing. The breath helps focus the mind. It helps create connection between the body and the mind, inviting and grounding you into the present.
Repetition. Repeating the postures is a powerful diagnostic tool physically. But it also allows you to practice letting go of what you think you know about your body to deepen and connect.
“Moving Meditation.” As the teacher guides you through the class, there is nothing for you to have to think about. Your body moves with the words, which helps you disconnect from the busyness of life and enter into a meditative state.
Stillness. Learning to be still between poses and even during poses is another opportunity to experience meditation in the class. Resting in savasana during the floor series (about 11 minutes in total during the Original Hot 90) helps reduce stress, decrease inflammation and promote your emotional well-being!
If you haven’t tried the 90-minute class, do your body and your mind a favor and take it!
