How to Prepare For Hot Yoga

Yogis swear by the benefits of hot yoga. In fact, celebrities, athletes and royalty have been seen flocking yoga studios around the globe and this is because anyone can do it!

As soon as you start, you sweat instantly! That’s like detoxification manually because heavy sweating can actually flush toxins from the skin and the body. Working out in a heated room makes your body work harder – perfect for people who are looking for a more intense workout, who want to develop flexibility and strength and who want to tone doing cardiovascular exercises.

In addition to this, hot yoga helps the body to relax, improve breathing and supports the development of better mental concentration and focus.

Hot Yoga Styles

Hot yoga comes in different styles similar to regular yoga and is practiced at certified studios that are usually heated to approx. 95-105 degrees F / 36-39 degrees C. Hot yoga classes can either follow a set of sequences or be based around a Vinyasa / flow style class – both focus on building strength and endurance. At Fire Shaper we have also evolved the entire hot yoga practice to mix and blend various disciplines of health and exercise with the practice of yoga.

How to Prepare For Hot Yoga

If you are planning on trying a class, here are some of the things you need to know. The key here is preparation. To enjoy the benefits as well as the class you should prepare before trying out hot yoga for the first time.

1. Determine the type of class. Fire Shaper offers many different forms of yoga practice ranging from a Bikram based class to a vinyasa based class.  Plus, you have the added benefit of choosing any of our other incredible styles such as Burn, Yin, Shape, Forge and more…

2. Don’t forget your towels. You will definitely sweat doing the postures so it’s advisable to bring your own or invest in a special yoga towel which Fire Shaper has available in studio.

3. Hydrate, hydrate, hydrate! Hydrate yourself the day or morning before your practice to maximize your strength and stamina. Keep this in mind you will sweat more than you’ve ever sweat in your entire life (especially at Fire Shaper) so your body needs more fluids than it would for other forms of exercise. Drink an ample amount of water throughout the day.  And Do not eat immediately before class because when you squeeze your stomach and organs in certain postures you want to make sure there isn’t in there that can be squeezed up 🙂
