Hot yoga promotes profuse perspiration, which naturally rids the body of impurities. Hot yoga also raises the core body temperature, so it’s not recommended for…

    Hi Everyone Anxiety is no stranger to any of us and in fact everyone needs to feel anxious sometimes, through this natural emotion the body enables a reaction which pumps adrenaline – the hormone stimulant into our systems.
