If you are new to hot yoga our biggest piece of advice is take your time. The heat can feel intense at times, but the heat is an important aspect of our practice. The heat helps to loosen up your body and warm your muscles so you can go deeper into the postures in a safer manner.
Drink plenty of water and try to avoid heavy meals 2-3 hours prior to class. If you must eat right before class choose fresh fruit or lighter, healthy options. We will practice compression postures that are beneficial to your internal organs and digestive system, however practicing these poses with a belly full of food or water can be uncomfortable. Remember to take your time, the practice of yoga is meant to be an ongoing enjoyable journey!
