    What should you eat or drink after a yoga class?

    Drinking a smoothie is a quick and easy way to refuel after a power yoga class. After your practice, it’s important to rehydrate, especially if you practice in a heated room. Smoothies are a great choice, as you can combine many ingredients into one convenient and delicious format.

    What are the best ingredients to include in a post-workout smoothie?

    Turmeric - Studies suggest that turmeric may reduce inflammation in the body, which can be particularly valuable after a hard workout or power yoga practice!

    Avocado - To repair muscles and keep your metabolism running optimally, add ¼ - ½ avocado to your smoothie! Loaded with healthy fats, avocado will also add a delicious thick texture to your recipe.

    Spinach - A terrific plant-based source of iron, adding a handful or two of spinach can up the nutritional value of your smoothie. Compared to other leafy greens, it also has a flavor that can be easily hidden.

    Banana - To replenish your glycogen stores after your yoga practice, add in healthy carbs like a banana!

    Berries - Full of antioxidants and high in fiber, berries are a great choice to naturally sweeten your post-practice smoothie.

    Coconut water - Without liquid you’d have a salad! Coconut water is our top pick for rehydrating after a workout or yoga class. It is rich in both magnesium and electrolytes which are essential for heart and muscle health.
