London: Hot Yoga is making waves in the fitness world, not because it is fun, but also because it's a great exercise. Expert says that 50-minute classes can help in achieving a healthy body, if done religiously.

Michele Pernetta, a known yoga teacher, says Hot Yoga means exercising in a hot room.



"It originally was Bikram Yoga (started by Bikram Choudhury). Then other people started teaching different styles in a hot room, everything from Bikram Yoga, Power Yoga, to Ashtanga or a personal mix from a teacher who may or may not be qualified to teach in hot conditions. So the term really just means you are doing yoga in a hot room," said Pernetta.

She also says that there are less chances of injuries in such yoga as the heat allows you to press further into the poses as your muscles and joints are at their optimum temperature.
