“Yes, hot yoga is awesome. Science says so”

Research from the Cardiovascular Physiology and Rehabilitation Laboratory was recently highlighted in the Globe and Mail. The article by Alex Hutchinson discusses the potential benefits of training in a hot yoga environment in elite Olympic field hockey players. This work was conducted as part of Andrew Perrotta’s PhD thesis in Experimental Medicine, Faculty of Medicine, under the supervision of Dr. Darren Warburton. We are proud of the work of our trainees and our continued work with Field Hockey Canada and various other professional and national teams.
