Hot Yoga Prep by Rebecca Louise | RHY blog

Hot Yoga Prep

Hot yoga is completely different to regular yoga in terms of how essential it is to prepare your body for class. The heat adds a whole new element to the workout and depending on how you prepare it will effective your abilities once inside the hot room.

I love getting my daily fix at Radiant Hot Yoga because it clears my mind and takes me to a place of peace. I believe everyone would benefit from exploring this space at least a few times a week so help them with day to day life.

Radiant Hot Yoga makes it easy for you to switch off and stretches your mind because of the quality of the studio and its teachers. Preparing for a class ahead of time is going to make your experience even more enjoyable!



We sweat excessively during hot yoga so it is essential to make sure you are drinking about a gallon of water for three days prior. Proper hydration will allow you to stretch more deeply and help you to avoid lightheadedness.

If you have not been consciously hydrating for three days prior, you can still attend a hot yoga class. Be mindful not to push yourself too hard. When I’m not fully hydrated, hot yoga its still a great excuse to go to the studio and enjoy the peaceful environment. On these days I am sure to take lots of breaks!

Electrolyte water can help you achieve optimum hydration. Electrolytes aid in delivering the water to the muscles more efficiently, enabling you to continue your workout. Be sure to choose electrolyte options that do not contain added sugar (coconut water or pure aloe leaf puree).



Fueling your body with good nutrition is not only going to make a difference in how you feel in the yoga studio, it has an effect on your day-to-day emotions and physical ability. An hour before practice, have a snack that contains protein, good carbs and fats for slow released energy. After you have finished in the studio, feed your body with foods that repair your muscles so that they can recover and rebuild.



Be sure to prepare your body for hot yoga with enough sleep. Allow your body to heal and detox with slumber. Radiant has classes all throughout the day so you will find one that fits into your schedule. If you are someone who struggles with sleep, try taking an evening class. The class will put your body at ease and help to erase the worries of the day from your mind.


Avoid Alcohol

Another preparation tip is to avoid alcohol. Alcohol is a diuretic therefore it dehydrates the body and decreases your strength and overall health.


The instructors at Radiant will help you feel new again. This is one of the reasons I am constantly drawn back into the Radiant studio. The instructors’ common goal is to heal you and remove impurities from your body.

Radiant Hot Yoga offers physically and mentally stimulating practices that bring you back to the basics of self-love, peace and happiness through healing.
