Formerly known as Dynamic Fitness, we unveiled the first hot studio on PEI in 2009. Now, as Infrared Fitness, we continue to be innovative and offer the most state of the art Hot Yoga Studio in Atlantic Canada. Our location at 99 Pownal features Charlottetown's first medical grade infrared Hot Yoga Studio, the second of it's kind in North America - the first one being our studio in Fredericton, New Brunswick.
The SaunaRay medical grade infrared heating system is fine tuned to the exact frequency that our bodies absorb heat from the sun. Because it is so efficient you sweat faster and the heat is not oppressive or overwhelming. It is also an Eco-friendly or "green" product because it uses half the electricity. Our studio is fully insulated for maximum energy efficiency with pine walls finished with orange oil and beeswax! This unique space can be used for multiple applications, as the benefits of infrared heat, simply by being in the room, are wide ranging.
The cardiovascular benefits associated with Infrared sauna therapy are numerous, and include, improved circulation, lower blood pressure, enhanced vascular function and lower risk or heart-related disease.
The ultimate weight loss solution. Between the caloric expenditure from your body cooling down in the Infrared heat and the work put in our HIIT class Hot Athletica, you can burn up to 700 calories in one session!
Evidence shows that Infrared saunas can benefit those with chronic pain. As well as aid in muscle damage, fribromyalgia, and arthritis.
Evidence indicates that we are able to release a number of toxins through sweating. Infrared saunas can help increase blood circulation and stimulate the sweat glands, releasing built-up toxins in the body.
Infrared heat increases the heart rate and localized blood circulations, which essentially reverse the accumulation of liquids in the fat cells to reduce the appearance of cellulite.
Speed and Endurance
The higher temperatures reached during a class increase blood flow so that the body will be forced to accommodate the high heat and regulate its own temperature.This results in a better performance during exercise due to the body's increased ability to adapt to extreme situation.
Just a few minutes in the gentle warmth of an Infrared Sauna will help you feel relaxes, rejuvenated, and renewed. Our Infrared Yin classes gave been shown to affect the automatic nervous system by putting the client in the parasympathetic ( rest and digestive ) state, allowing the body to heal and restore itself.
