Keepin it SUMMER COOL in the HOT room

1. Hydrate! Hydrate! Hydrate!  And not just H2O.  Make sure you are drinking things high in electrolytes including coconut water and even the occasional Gatorade.

2. Take advantage of the fresh fruit available in the summer.  Things like watermelon, cantelope, honeydew, and grapes.  Not only eating them, but you can buy fresh squeezed fruit and veggie juices.

3. Get outside.  Let you body absorb the Vitamin D it has been missing all winter.  Vitamin D is a steroid vitamin, a group of fat-soluble prohormones, which encourages the absorption and metabolism of calcium and phosphorous. Also, getting outside a bit in the hot summer helps prepare your body for the temperature in the hot room.
4. Maintain a healthy and balanced eating schedule.  You may eat "lighter" but still eat enough to make you feel strong in the yoga room.
5. Make sure you are getting the 5 essential electrolytes.  These are potassium, magnesium, sodium, calcium and phosphorous.  Electrolyte drinks containing sodium and potassium salts replenish the body's water and electrolyte levels and prevent dehydration.
