1. Cool, Comfortable Clothes: Opt for breathable, moisture-wicking fabrics to help keep you cool and comfortable. Clothes that fit well but allow for full range of motion are ideal. Avoid heavy fabrics that retain heat and moisture.
2. Yoga Towel or La Pochette Anywhere Everywhere Yoga Mat: A high-quality yoga towel or a specially designed yoga mat like the La Pochette Anywhere Everywhere Yoga Mat can enhance your practice. These mats or towels are designed to provide grip even when wet, which is essential in the hot and humid conditions of a hot yoga studio.
3. La Pochette Kit Bag: This bag is an excellent choice for carrying your yoga gear. Its waterproof lining is ideal for storing sweaty clothes post-class, and its size, being 30% bigger than the standard sweat bag, can comfortably fit your yoga towel or mat. The La Pochette Kit Bag is a practical and stylish option for transporting your hot yoga essentials.
4. Hair Tie: If you have long hair, a hair tie is essential. Tying your hair back will not only keep it out of your face but also help you stay cooler during the intense practice.
5. Toiletries are a must for your post-hot yoga routine, considering the intense sweating involved. Utilize the La Pochette Travel Bottles for your shower essentials like body wash and shampoo. A post-class shower not only cleanses sweat and toxins but consider concluding with a cold water burst to stimulate circulation, enhance muscle recovery, and improve skin and hair health.
6. Moisturiser After showering, it’s important to rehydrate your skin. Pack a good quality moisturiser in a La Pochette Silicone Pot. These pots are perfect for carrying small amounts of skincare products, and their secure, leak-proof design ensures no spills in your bag.
7. Water Bottle: Staying hydrated is crucial in hot yoga. Bring a large water bottle to ensure you have enough water before, during, and after the class.
8. Small Hand Towel: Useful for wiping sweat during the class.
Packing these items will ensure you're well-prepared for your hot yoga session, allowing you to focus on your practice and enjoy the numerous benefits of hot yoga.
