FAR INFRARED is Coming to YBD
At YbD we are do our best to remain
a quality U-choose* yoga studio–
so Far Infrared is coming to YbD.
FIR brings many benefits and with it is added health
benefits of heat supplied by Far Infra Red (FIR) panels that
we will be placing units in the studio to enhance
It would also make the studio more green by heating more
efficiently. However the benefits to the human body are

(Hart, 1981; Zmeureanu et al., 1988; Howell and Suryanarayana, 1990;
Kalisperis et al., 1990; Ling and Deffenbaugh, 1990).
This represents a significant decrease in energy costs.
Since we are renters this could
prevent increases in our rent due to increased
energy costs. Thus we would remain as a viable yoga
studio in Portsmouth continuing to operate as a U-choose
elegant yoga studio.
Our room will be operated at an ambient temperature
of 85F for those classes offering FIR. To give you an idea
of what this is like , the restorative yoga class has operated
at a temperature of 80F for its history.
Can we tell you what the benefits
are of Far Infrared
Coming to YbD?
Far Infrared acutely increases nitric oxide
production by the body. The Nobel Prize in Physiology
or Medicine for 1998 awarded jointly 3 physicians for their
discoveries concerning “nitric oxide (N=O) as a signalling
molecule in the cardiovascular system”.
Prior to this study Japan had been using Far Infrared
since the ‘70’s for cancer, heart treatments, circulatory
concerns and skin disorders.
N=O is produced by the innermost cell layer of the
arteries and spreads through the underlying muscle
tissue. It prevents the formation of thrombi
(reducing thrombosis) It is a signal molecule of the
nervous system and can calm anxiety when a person is
exposed to the FIR. It boosts the immune system and
is also a gatekeeper to blood flow, helping reduce
the pain of varicose veins.
N=O is important for the olfactory sense and
our capacity to recognise different scents. It may
even be important for our memory.
Nitric oxide was named “Molecule of the Year” in
1992 by the journal Science, but it took another 6
years for those responsible for the major discoveries
surrounding it to win the Nobel Prize.
Three US scientists—Robert F. Furchgott, PhD,
Louis J. Ignarro, PhD, and Ferid Murad, MD, PhD—
did receive the 1998 Nobel Prize for Physiology and
Medicine on December 10, 1998, in Stockholm, Sweden.
N=O releases the smooth muscles so your yoga
poses are deeper and require less effort. You may
find your body moving into poses that you could
not have done otherwise. This action increases the
opposition on the bone by the muscle
improving bone density.
Why Far Infrared is coming to YbD.
Being exposed to FIR is so calming
therefore reduce your anxiety with the
double benefits of Yoga and FIR.
The first time a human body creates
N=O naturally is when a mother holds
the baby. Skin on skin and body heat
start the generation of this highly beneficial
chemical in the human body. FIR increases
the production cycle, extends the production
cycle and greatly relaxes the mind and body
YbD is currently raising money to install the
FIR heaters. Help us by sharing this information
with your employer who may match a donation
that you also provide.
Our rent is just covered by class donations.
We need the funds for this endeavor.
We are also being matched by an anonymous
donor who will match up to $2500.
So please donate on the home page,
by pressing the donate button.
If you have any further questions regarding the
health benefits of YbD or can help us raise the
remaining funds to install please contact us
here or here by email.
