I have never taken a hot yoga class, so I am looking for some tips on yoga in the heat.
Currently, due to the insane cost of electricity here, I try not to run the air conditioner much. This includes my morning yoga practice. (I figure people pay good money to take hot yoga classes, right?! I get it free in my own home!)
The humidity runs about 80% here right now, and my room gets up to a good 87-90 degrees F in the morning.
And the sweat drips like crazy!
I don't know if it's just best to have a towel handy and continually wipe off my feet/hands/back/knees and mat, or if there's another trick. I didn't want to keep interrupting my flow to mop the mat, but I start to slip and slide on it. Is there a good mat for hot yoga? I know I just bought a cheaper thing to use for now while I wait for my good one to get shipped.
Or maybe special gloves/socks? But that wouldn't help with the rest of me slipping.... unless I wear full-body absorbables! ;-)
So, just looking for some tips about staying dry and safe. No fun to try a balancing pose and have your hand slip from under you!
