Q. How Do I Prepare For The Hot Yoga Class?
1.Since the class is conducted in a hot room you need to carry a towel and a bottle of water
2. It’s important to be well-hydrated before taking a hot yoga class, so we recommend drinking “liters and liters of water throughout the day” in anticipation.
3. Come on an empty stomach. No food 1 to 3 hours before class. A small quantity of simple, easily digestible food is recommended for the meal prior to class.
4. Replenishing lost minerals and electrolytes with a fortified drink afterward, such as Gatorade, Electral or coconut water.
5. Take a class at your own pace. If you feel weird, you take a break. There’s no ego in yoga, so you just do what you’re capable of.

Hot Yoga is used by practitioners worldwide to help them recover from injuries or operations. Movement in a heated room helps heal injuries as it warms up muscles and ligaments, increasing blood circulation to move new oxygen to the injured area.
