Hot yoga and Crohn

Hello everyone,
new to this forum (and to the Crohn's as well).

I have Crohn and in May I had my Ileum removed because of it. I also suffer from back problems and therefore I want to try yoga, more precisely hot/bikram yoga, which is practiced in a room heated to around 40 Celsius degrees (around 100 F). Is the temperature something that can trigger Crohn? I am asking that because heat tends to worsens inflammation.
I am not really sure if high temp can trigger inflammation because i was living in a very cold place when crohns was triggered for me but I what I heard and experienced is having cold showers helps in reducing symptoms
