The body generates heat during a workout, which is part of the reason that you warm up. It gets the blood flowing and the body literally warms up so that your muscles, joints, and tendons are more flexible. It can help to prevent injury during exercise. So it makes sense to hold a yoga class in a studio that's already hot—it just makes the process of warming up even easier on your body. Come to YogaWorks Fells Point to dive into a hot yoga practice.
