What is hot yoga?

Hot yoga is a vigorous form of yoga performed in a workplace that's hotted (temperature for hot yoga)  to 105 F (40 C) and has moisture of 40 percent. The formal name for hot yoga is"Bikram yoga."

Hot yoga Bikram is a 90- minute program that consists of a series of 26 postures (hot yoga poses). The postures require lengthy, forceful, and well-controlled compression of all major muscle groups. 

The demanding nature of the acts and the heat are designed to raise your heart rate and tire your muscles. Because of its intensity and eventuality to beget heat-related illness, hot yoga is not for everyone.
