Hydration and Electrolyte Replacement

 

It is very important to keep yourself well hydrated and to replace the loss of electrolytes (body salts and minerals) lost during a hot yoga class through your sweat.  Dehydration and electrolyte imbalance go hand in hand.  Water alone is insufficient!!!  Please replace the sodium, potassium, chloride, and magnesium in your body. A good rule of thumb is that your body needs at least half of it's body's weight in fluid ounces to be properly hydrated. If you are taking hot classes and you sweat profusely, that number must be increased!

Dehydration Symptoms

  • Confusion

  • Poor concentration

  • Irregular heartbeat, fast or hurried, skipping beats

Caffeine and alcohol are diuretics; they will increase the flow of urine and pull water and electrolytes from your body!
