Why we chose infrared radiant heating panels…

Reduces dust/emissions – Unlike forced air heating systems, our infrared radiant heating panels do not blow dust or allergens. They do not release any emissions, chemicals or pollutants and help keep the air in your home clean and clear.

Therapeutic relief – Odds are you have experienced the soothing feeling of warm summer sun on your skin. Our heaters, like the sun, produce radiant heat waves which work to heat up water. Because the human body is made up of mostly water, this infrared heat transfers extremely effectively and can help gently increase blood circulation, rid the body of toxins and even provide pain relief.

Infrared rays are one of the sun’s rays and are the healthiest, they penetrate into your skin deeply and they dissolve harmful substances accumulated in your body. The infrared rays vitalize your cells and metabolism. These waves penetrate deep into our body for a deep heating action which allows for the body to activate the sweat glands. The sweat glands offer one of only a few mechanisms that the body has to eliminate toxins and since the skin is the largest organ in the human body it is apparently a very good means for elimination.

A message from Ryan on how the name “Yoga Reclaimed” was born…

Have you ever had someone ask you what your name means? Or have you named a child and people ask “What does that mean?”
Well we have a new studio coming with a somewhat different name, I guess. Many people have been asking where it comes from, or what it means…

“Yoga Reclaimed” for me, personally, is where it all starts. I have for many years been on a path of discovery and on a search for something. As many of us do during the journey get a bit lost or astray I found parts of me slipping away, parts that I love, parts of me I forgot about. Any time we feel a sense of loss I believe our soul searches to regain or RECLAIM what is missing. So, for me at this time, this step of creating our own space with our own vision is reclaiming some of the things we have lost along the way.

On a bigger scale, I feel that we all lose things as we walk the path of life and the human experience. I am a firm believer that coming to your yoga mat and coming to yoga in any capacity offers us an opportunity to remember. In this very remembering we work to RECLAIM what has been lost… Our true nature is within and as we move through life we can tend to slip away from this true nature. We come to yoga as a way of working into reclaiming what we have possibly lost or abandoned. We are coming to reclaim what was ours to begin with, a deep rooted sense of connection to self. Unfortunately we allow ourselves and others to move us from our path of true nature to be united. We may even need this reminder daily.

We are also creating our space with as much reusable, reclaimed if you will, materials as we can. Part of this process is re-purposing materials. You will see this throughout the studio…using local builders with local materials and re-purposing as much as we can. Also adding one of our favorite elements of having some of the gifted artists from our area create pieces of art to display on rotation.

The other part of the name you see is set in the center of the heart with rays of light shining from it. We are Bhakti Yogis that strive to work from the heart as much as we work and live from the head. Again, to us a reminder to live as much as we allow ourselves to from the heart. The rays of light represent the energy we share with others. From the practice through our heart is how we would love to share all the we see.

So come and reclaim the spirit of who you are with us, it can be in any way you need that to be. Maybe a physical state that has been lost. Maybe something in your heart. Something is there for you to re-connect to. Otherwise Yoga Reclaimed is just the name of your studio and the meaning of it expands beyond words for you and the ability to define it may be irrelevant. It is just a place we call home and we wanted it to mean something to us. It can be said that your name should just make sense to people. I think if people care enough to ask it is worth an explanation. So here is my offering to those in curiosity and wonder. I am leaving room for the meaning of this new sacred home to expand as we go. There are parts to this that we have yet to unfold, and for that I am excited and grateful.

Much Love,  RB
