Hot Yoga Don’t: Do strenuous workouts the same day
Determined to pack in as many workouts as possible? Resist the urge to do so when you’re just starting a hot yoga practice.
“If it is your first time practicing hot yoga, do not do any other strenuous workouts on that day,” says Bolen.
The best approach is to gradually introduce yoga to your weekly routine.
“Always work new classes into your schedule progressively as it will take your body time to adjust and recover,” she says.
Eventually, you’ll be able to do hot yoga the same day as your other favourite workouts, and they’ll complement each other nicely.
