Hot Yoga Don’t: Eat heavy foods
You probably weren’t planning to eat a four-course meal before working out, but before you reach for another dinner roll, consider this: big meals and hot workouts don’t mix, says Bolen.
“Yoga helps to aid digestion through twists, which can be uncomfortable if you have eaten anything too heavy throughout the day,” she says.
Another thing to avoid: Coffee. It will dehydrate you, which is the last thing you want before entering a hot room. (We’re talking roughly 40 degrees Celsius!)
