What is HIIT?
HIIT (High Intensity Interval Training) alternates periods of short bursts of intense exercise with less intense recovery period. For example, 30 seconds high intensity exercise followed by 10 seconds rest. A number of studies have shown that HIIT stimulates the body to expend more calories and result in more fat burning both during and after a workout than continuous exercise.
Why Combined Yoga & HIIT?
The benefits to the body and mind that yoga brings and the cardio and fat burning of a HIIT workout are a perfect marriage. You warm the body up consciously, work the body intensively, then cool down, reconnect the body & mind as well as help the muscles recover by stretching them back out. It’s the perfect combination to add to strengthen your yoga practice, sculpt your body, or add to any other exercise routine you may have.
