Rebuilt Cardio and Circulatory System


Rebuilt Cardio and Circulatory System

HotCore Yoga improves Linda’s capacity to heal Bruises

Immediately after I began taking yoga with Peter Sklivas, I got  hooked averaging 4 classes per week. Running & working out in gyms all of my adult life suddenly felt like a waste of time. After the total experience of the HotCore (Bikram) classes with Peter Sklivas at Yoga Passion, I am feeling the benefits: better mental clarity … stronger sense of well-being even outside of class … increased muscle tone … rebuilt cardio and circulatory system … greater range of motion in a shoulder that’s had 3 surgeries and 9 months of physical therapy.

Ever since I was a child, I’ve always bruised easily. Normally bruises take an extraordinary amount of time to fade. Last year  when a soccer ball slammed into my thigh during a friendly family game, the bruise took almost a year to fade.  The week before Christmas I fell from a ladder while putting up Christmas decorations. My left hand was swollen & badly bruised from the tips of my fingers to the base of my palm. I had a four inch wide bruise across my hip. Now was a time I could use benefit from a rebuilt cardio and circulatory system.

While nothing was broken, my hand was extremely sore.  My doctor told me the deep purple bruising would not begin to fade for at least six weeks. Based on my history, I assumed it would be twice that long.  I continued attend to class even though my movement was limited with the soreness of my hand. Much to my amazement, the bruising disappeared in about ten days. Having changed nothing else in my normal routine & always having gotten a good cardiovascular workout at least four times a week prior to coming to HotCore Yoga, I can only attribute this remarkable change of my rebuilt cardio and circulatory system to HotCore (Bikram) Yoga.
