Heated yoga increases the efficiency of our physical systems including cardiovascular, nervous, elimination and immunity.
Heated yoga warms the muscles for safer stretching, which in turn allows for a dynamic yoga practice.
Naturally, heated yoga causes you to sweat more. Sweat is an excellent method of detoxifying your body and giving your kidneys a rest.
Water. Water. Water. Drink it. Often. Drink it during the day. Before you arrive at the studio. While you’re at the studio. After your practice.
Listen to your body. Are you just uncomfortable or are you dizzy and nauseous. If it’s discomfort, that’s normal. If it’s dizzy and nauseous, stop and rest. Oh, and drink some water.
When you set up your mat, remember, it’s cooler in the front of the studio near the windows.
“The cure for anything is salt water: sweat, tears or the sea.”
