5 Tips for your First Hot Yoga Class at Move·ment
What is Hot Yoga?
Practicing yoga in a heated room increases your pulse rate and metabolism, allowing your blood vessels to become more flexible and making your bod burn some major calories!
With the space opening soon we've been getting a lot of questions on what to expect from our warm-hot yoga classes. Here are 5 tips on how you can have the best experience possible!
1. Stay Hydrated.
Try and stay as hydrated as you can a few days before class. Not only is having a hydrated body great for your skin, hair and organs. It's great for the muscles when you start to move in a heated room. Also don't be afraid to bring a water bottle to have beside your mat. Biggest thing is not to chug a huge amount of water 1 hour before your class. That can make for an uncomfortable session.
2. Take a Breather
While our classes are a slow flow. Sometimes we pick up the pace. If you need to take a minute and lie down in Savasana, rest on one of our pillows or drink some water. DO IT! Your body knows best and taking a break is how you show your body you care!
3. Bring a towel
We provide towels for you that are cleaned daily. Bring your favourite one to wipe the sweat off or add some extra grip to your mat. This will also help with self-practice if you decide to venture into other classes or spaces in the area!
4. What to wear
...We think you know the answer to this. Whatever the %&$ you want! Just be mindful that the room is warm and you will sweat. Our space is for everyBODY.
5. Ask questions. Bring a friend for support.
Sometimes coming to a class for the first time can be scary. Bring a friend, ask questions beforehand and during classes. Our teachers love to expand students knowledge and in turn we learn from you!
