Electrolytes Loss and Hot Yoga

Last updated 3 years ago

After spending 60 or 90 minutes in a hot yoga class, one of the most important things to remember is to replace the electrolytes you just lost. But why is this so important? 
 
Hot yoga is a great way to detox, but we also lose some of the good (like electrolytes) in the process. Electrolytes are a driving force for our body's muscle and nerve functions to work properly so it's important to always remember to replenish after a class. Electrolytes also help to control proper fluid functions in our bodies which helps to regulate blood pressure. Not properly replenishing your electrolytes can leave you susceptible to muscle cramps, fatigue, nausea and dizziness. 
 
The hardest part about replacing electrolytes is remembering to do it, but please... make it a priority! In the studio we have Smart Water, coconut water and Ultima packets, but snacking on a banana, almonds or cashews will do the job too. 

So the next time you come to hot yoga remember: it's not just about prepping yourself properly before class, there's work to be done afterwards too. But we promise, your body will thank you!
