Proper Hydration for Dallas Hot Yoga

Proper Hydration for Dallas Hot Yoga

Staying properly hydrated is always important for optimum health, especially in a warm climate like Texas. When undertaking a hot yoga practice, especially with Dallas hot yoga, please make sure to stay well hydrated both inside our studio and during the rest of the day. Our bodies can expend up to 3 liters of water during a single hot yoga class!

What to Eat Before Yoga Class

What to Eat Before Yoga Class

The proper diet is important in order to maximize any yoga practice. With Dallas hot yoga, eating appropriately before a yoga class is particularly important. Here, we combine the extreme temperatures of the Texas environment with the extreme heat of the yoga studio. To equip our bodies with the stamina to really use the heat, and to allow our bodies to work efficiently during practice, eating healthy food on a yoga-friendly schedule is an important key to a successful practice.

The Health Benefits of Hot Yoga

The Health Benefits of Hot Yoga

Yoga

Yoga is a surprisingly effective cardiovascular exercise and caloric burner that offers many health benefits. It is one of the very few efficient forms of exercise that creates minimal impact and carries minimal risk of injury when practiced properly. The asana, or poses, practiced in hatha (physical) yoga stimulate the affected muscles more completely and across a greater range of motion than such exercises as running or weightlifting. The result is a higher calorie burn and greater increase in muscle tone, without the loss of flexibility that can result from some exercise routines.

Advantages of Hot Yoga: Body, Mind, and Spirit

Yoga is an unusual form of exercise in our fast-paced, mind-over-matter world. The advantages of hot yoga often leave new practitioners surprised, as their bodies respond differently to a new and unique exercise routine. At Sunstone, we strive to help our students find their balance and adapt to a different way of thinking about exercise.
