Hi! I'm new, I just joined this morning.. specifically to ask this question:
I recently began practicing at a Hot Yoga studio, and I loooove it. It's like combining yoga and nice hot bath. However, I'm a bit concerned about the sanitation. There's about 50 people in each class, there's not a lot of room between mats so we drip sweat on our neighbors. Also the blankets and blocks that we use are exposed to our sweat and then placed back in a pile for the next class. Once I went to a late evening class and when I walked in there was sweat puddles on the floor from the previous class.
And, as we approach flu season I'm a bit confused. This practice seems incredibly cleansing and could possibly bolster the immune system, but if we're crammed into a room and exchanging body fluid, then it seems it would invite transmission of the flu.
Also I've only taken this class in warm weather. Are there extra precautions to take when stepping out of a 105º environment soaking wet into a 45º environment?
Your advice will be much appreciated!
