Whether your yoga practice is a supplemental stretch session or a full-time fitness regime, preparing your body with proper hydration and electrolytes will help you make the most of your downward dogs and happy babies. Below we’ve put together a guide for pairing Nuun products with popular yoga variations, so you can hydrate with confidence.
Bikram or Hot Yoga- They say that only two things in life are certain: death and taxes. We’d like to add a third thing to that list of guarantees: if you go to a hot yoga class, you’re going to sweat A LOT. To replace the electrolytes your body loses during a hot yoga session, a Nuun Sport tablet is the perfect addition to your water bottle. We’ve talked about the benefits of pre-loading electrolytesbefore and a hot yoga session is the perfect opportunity to give this strategy a try. The best part? You won’t feel weighed down while you work up a sweat because Nuun is made with natural flavors, no artificial sweeteners, and only contains 15 calories per tablet.
Hatha, Vinyasa, and Other Moderate Yoga Practices- Your regular yoga practice might be more about finding balance than feeling the burn, but that doesn’t mean you should overlook the importance of hydration. Top off your vitamins and electrolytes before your next yoga class with Nuun Vitamins. Formulated with less sodium than Nuun Sport, Nuun Vitamins is designed especially for everyday low-intensity activities. Bonus: Two of the six delicious flavors of Nuun Vitamins contain a gentle lift of caffeine—perfect for your early morning sun salutations.
Restorative or Gentle Yoga- Is there anything better than unwinding in a gentle restorative yoga class after a long week? To support a state of deep relaxation, Nuun Rest is a perfect pre-yoga beverage. Including anti-inflammatory ingredients and magnesium and potassium to prevent muscle cramping, Nuun Rest supports a body’s natural state of physical and mental relaxation. Naturally derived melatonin makes it the perfect nighttime recovery drink, so you can sink even deeper into your Shavasana.
Make healthful hydration part of your yoga routine. Delivering electrolytes, vitamins, and minerals designed to support more muuvement, it’s not a stretchto say that Nuun is a great addition to your yoga practice.
