Hot Yoga Don’t: Eat within an hour of class
When preparing for a hot yoga class, make sure you eat healthy foods – and try not to eat right before you roll out your yoga mat.
“Ensure that you have eaten balanced meals throughout the day, and that any large meals are finished about two hours before class,” says Bolen.
Of course, if you’re really hungry and your yoga class is about to start, it’s best not to go into the room with a growling tummy. You need energy to carry you through, after all.
In that case, Bolen recommends snacking on something light and refreshing, like fruit. (We’ve also got some great yoga snack ideas.)
