  • Hydration – by learning how to take care of yourself in the heat, you’ll enjoy better hydration all summer. Be sure to drink lots of water and take electrolytes, especially now!
  • Greater Range of Motionin the summer, your body is naturally warmer and more supple than during cooler months. Enjoy this time to lean into your practice and go somewhere new.
  • Maintaining Your Practice if Hot Yoga and Pilates are an important part of your routine, it doesn’t make sense to take a 3-month break from May to August. Keep rocking it out and connecting to your body and your breath.
  • Staying in Shape for Summer Activities – there’s no better time for a jog in the park, swimming, or family sports. Hot Yoga and Pilates condition your body and increase stamina, flexibility, and strength.
