How to heat a yoga studio

Far Infrared heaters are used in modern infrared saunas and are perceived by many in the health industry to offer health benefits such as encouraging healthy metabolism. The wavelength they emit is in the vital range of heat radiated from the human body itself, making it a very natural form of heat and now widely used for hot yoga studios and spas.

Spas and Hot Yoga studios

Why is infrared heat effective in yoga studios?

Infrared heaters offer the only practical solution to raise the temperature in yoga studios to the temperatures needed. Infrared them warms rooms and people rather than heating the air. Infrared is a gentle, natural form of heating, often used in incubators for babies. The (completely safe) infrared rays penetrate skin, helping to assist circulation and warming you from the inside. It feels like having the sun on your face on a spring day. Check here for our health facts.

Why infrared heating make a great choice for yoga studios?

With the right placement of panels, heat is  evenly distributed to warm each corner of the studio. Because yoga temperatures range from the high 68°Fs up to 104°F for Bikram and hot yoga,  you’ll need a heating system capable of delivering those sorts of temperatures (and a controller capable of managing those higher temperatures too). Infrared space heaters like the Herschel Summit are the most practical option. They can deliver the sort of wattage levels needed with as few heaters as possible and because they heat materials (floors, furnishings) before heating the air, they require much less electricity input to produce the desired temperatures when compared with convection heaters. Infrared is a cost effective option for heating a studio as the initial outlay on panels will pay back in their efficiency.

Our hot yoga infrared heaters are zero light far infrared heaters, perfect for hot yoga studios & spas, providing a gentle heat with no noise. They are maintenance free, long life, energy efficient and we have options for ceiling or wall mounting.

For hot yoga heaters our Summit heaters can easily achieve the 40 °C+ temperatures required when properly specified.
