The Importance of Electrolyte Replacement

The Importance of Electrolyte Replacement

Rehydration after any activity that causes sweating is important. Drinking plenty of plain water after class may be sufficient for someone who maintains a healthy diet, particularly if they eat some fruits or vegetables soon after class. But for profuse sweaters, or someone who might not have the opportunity to eat after class, plain water is not enough. When we…

No More Stinky Mats

No More Stinky Mats

The old style PVC mats, commonly referred to as "sticky mats" -- and which we no longer sell -- can be washed in a washing machine on a gentle cycle with a small amount of Woolite-type laundry detergent.

Take it Easy!

Take it Easy!

It's a good idea to 'sit one out' occasionally in class. The most important aspect of our hatha yoga practice is being as mindful as possible, paying close attention to what you're doing and how it feels. Working in a hot room can be challenging and if you practice a posture while you're fatigued it will be more difficult to…

The Sniff Test

The Sniff Test

I'm posting this as a Hot Tip, which it is, but it would also be fair to call it a public service announcement.
