Have you ever heard “hot yoga”?

Hot yoga became so popular in Vancouver, but do you know what hot yoga is?

 

Hot yoga became so popular in Vancouver, but do you know what hot yoga is?

Hot yoga is a vigorous form of yoga performed in a studio that is heated to 105F (40C) and has a humidity of 40 percent. The formal name for hot yoga is “Bikram yoga”.

 

Survive a couple rainy Vancouver winters, and you’ll know pretty quickly how beneficial heat can be to the body, the mind, and the soul.

There are tons of benefits. Here are some example:

Muscles: The benefits of hot yoga and the heat allows you to achieve greater flexibility and ease getting into the postures, which means you get the benefits from the postures more quickly, and it is safer to push yourself further into the postures

Heart and lungs: Your heart will beat faster creating the same effect as any aerobic exercise, which makes your body burn fat more effectively.

Skin: You sweat! Your body uses sweating to detoxify, and it makes your skin glow

There are various hot yoga studios in Vancouver! Give it a try and get healthy body!

ホットヨガとは?

バンクーバーで人気になってきているホットヨガ!ホットヨガとはどんなものなのかご存知ですか?

ホットヨガ(別名:ビクランヨガ)とは室温40度、湿度40%の部屋で行われるヨガのことです。ホットヨガは普通のヨガと違い、体にとって一番柔軟がされやすい室温で行い、発汗と汗の蒸発が一番適切に行われる環境で行うヨガを言います。

ホットヨガで期待できる効果は様々ですが、筋肉・心臓・肺・肌にも良く、代表的なものに『冷え性改善』『デトックス効果』『呼吸法による痩身』などの効果も期待できます。

いい事ばかりのホットヨガ!これを機に試してみてはいかがですか?

there are plenty of ways to add value to your CV without shelling out

Going traveling? In between partying and sightseeing selfies, there are plenty of ways to add value to your CV without shelling out

ne07dvwjakscxuinxaxo

1. Study abroad

Studying abroad, even briefly, is an awesome way to see the non-touristy side of a new country whilst adding valuable international study experience to your resume. Be careful to check if you’re applicable though – many are only open to current students or recent graduates. Sob.

2. Get volunteering

According to a recent survey by TimeBank, 73% of employers would employ a candidate with volunteer experience over one without, so it really pays to factor in some volunteering on your travels. Sites like Workaway.info and Freevolunteering.net can put you in touch with organisations and individuals looking for volunteers around the world.

3. Learn a language

Learning a foreign language, even to a basic level, can really add something extra to your CV and is a brilliant way to fully immerse yourself in a new culture on your travels. A good hack is to learn a language in a place where living costs are lower – so instead of learning Spanish in Spain, head to Guatemala.

4. Get work experience

Working in a foreign country is a great way to make a bit of money to pay for your onward travels. The Erasmus+ scheme at university doesn’t just fund study abroad but you can also use the scheme up to one year after you’ve graduated to get a grant to work abroad in a European country too.

5. Teach

Whether you want a teaching career or not, teaching still adds loads of impressive skills to your CV, such as communication, teamwork skills and your ability to work in a foreign country. One of the easiest ways is to take a short TEFL (Teaching English as a Foreign Language) course, which will gives you the skills to teach english in language schools all around the world.
