How to Hydrate for Hot Yoga

What is Hot Yoga?

Founded by yoga teacher Bikram Choudhury in the 1970s, Hot Yoga is usually practiced at a sweat-inducing 32-40 degrees Celsius (90-105 F).

It does exactly what it says on the can: yoga, in a hot room.

Hot Yoga. But why?

We know that yoga is a fabulous form of exercise, but why do we need to be hot while we’re doing it?

Well, it’s not just a gimmick.  There are specific reasons why Hot Yoga works:

  • Detox: when you do a Hot Yoga workout, you sweat. A lot. Toxins are flushed out, supporting good liver and kidney health.
  • Soft Tissue: You know how we warm up before any exercise? Well, it’s easier to do that in a warm room! It sounds obvious, but it’s true: your muscles warm up more quickly and effectively. Some people even think that it’s easier to achieve more challenging postures as a result.
  • Skin: How well do you think your skin is going to feel after all that sweating? Fabulous, that’s how. Your pores open, toxins are flushed through and your circulation is given a real boost. The result? Gorgeously glowing skin.
  • Heart Health: Hot Yoga slightly elevates your heart rate so that your whole body enjoys a strengthening, toning cardiovascular workout.

Does Hot Yoga Cause Dehydration?

But there is a note of caution: dehydration.

Working out means that we need to drink more water to keep our bodies hydrated.

We also need to drink more water when we’re hot.

Undertaking intensive physical exercise in very high temperatures means that the risk of dehydration is increased.

Oh boy!

How Do I Rehydrate for Hot Yoga?

Sure, you can take in a bottle of water, but with the extortionate cost, giant-sized environmental issues and concerns over BPA, more people are choosing not to.

And who can blame them?
