The vigorous form of the popular practice has legions of fans—here’s where you can go to work up a sweat

Doing yoga in a heated room may sound like torture to some, but it could actually be easier than standard yoga for others––the heat makes it easier for muscles to stretch, allowing you to go deeper in your poses than usual. 

From Bikram yoga to vinyasa flows, here are the top hot yoga classes in Hong Kong to check out.
