Is yoga better inside the sauna or outside the sauna?

If sauna and yoga aren’t brothers and sisters, they are at least twin sons from different mothers.

  • For those into sauna inside the hot room, we can’t help but draw parallels to hot yoga here.
  • For those into sauna outside the hot room, between rounds, we welcome these 3 great poses here.

Personally, i’m more of a fan of yoga AFTER a sauna round, outside in the garden all misty wet with rain.

Side Angle Stretch

Either way, thanks to the heat, and the rubber band theory, our muscles and joints are more relaxed and our bodies more flexible. Additionally, our minds are hopefully more calm from our time on the sauna bench.  We are enjoying a mindful (with a lower case “m”) presence (lower case) living in the now.

A good time to crack a beer, or a good time for side angle stretch?

There is no secret.  Yoga inside the sauna or outside the sauna can be a beneficial part of our sauna sessions.
