Top 5 Reasons NOT to Use Lotion Before Yoga

This week we hear from longtime Bikram Yoga AZ teacher and practitioner, Erin Hanson. She has some expert advice about why lotion and Bikram Yoga do not mix. 

1. It's hard to hold the grip in postures when your hands are sweaty AND greasy.

2. Not everyone likes your favorite scented lotion.

3. If it's on your face, it will sweat into your eyes and it will burn!

4. You will sweat it all onto your towel. Then you'll have to lie down in it.

5. You will have a hard time opening your water bottle with slick hands and you will be an unhappy yogi without your water.

Save the lotion for after class!!
