What you should know about hot yoga

Yoga is excellent for you, but hot yoga is even better. The studio temperature can vary from 90 to 105 degrees Fahrenheit, so you will sweat a lot. When we sweat, we eliminate harmful substances out of our body and we lose fat faster. But, this is a demanding task, so you will need to be prepared. This is also the first step. You will have to wear light clothes made from water-wicking material. Also, you must wear something that will prevent slipping.

A good side is that you can rest anytime you want. As the name suggests, it will get hot in a studio, and you will sweat a lot. If you need rest or you feel lightheaded, you must take a break. This isn’t a mistake, it is just something you have to do. In order to prevent lightheaded, you will have to bring a lot of water. Just one bottle usually isn’t enough. Hydration is very important in hot yoga.

You will also have to eat a lot. In fact, you can eat during the whole day, just avoid eating an hour or two before a class. If you must, you can eat something small that will give you energy for a couple of hours.

Hot yoga isn’t just about sweating. You will use your lower and upper body strength and you will build strength over time. This is a great muscle workout as well. Also, hot yoga is much better for your muscle flexibility than a regular yoga. Heat can make muscles stretchier. The same difference is in the summer and in winter.
