So I’ve been doing hot yoga at minimum once per week for the past 3 years. It’s always a 60 minute class and the temp in the room is 100-104. I stopped doing yoga from about wk6 to wk 12 because I had HG (really severe morning sickness). But I’ve started taking classes again, I’m 16 weeks now. I modify certain postures from what I’ve read online and I take my temp before, during and after—whenever I hit 99, I start sweating and cool down. Temp has never gone over 99.1. Looking for other mom’s experiences with hot yoga during pregnancy. Doctor has said as long as my temp doesn’t go over 101.5 and I’m hydrated, since I’ve been doing it this long it is ok. But I definitely get some looks and my friends are all super skeptical. I even saw a blog post online relating hot yoga in pregnancy to as bad as smoking. And there really isn’t many studies done on seasoned yogis doing hot yoga in pregnancy. What have others experienced?
