Coconut water and yoga is a great combination.
In the mornings, prior to yoga class, I often saw a man collecting coconuts. He climbs the tree gracefully and knocks down the fruit or uses a long stick he created as a tool to reach up from the ground without climbing. Whatever his method, the coconuts are collected and cracked soon thereafter and ready for sale.
They say that you should consume local produce wherever you are in the world. Mother nature knows what to provide for you at every moment, wherever you feet may land. Coconut water is a superfood offering you myriads of health benefits, especially during those hot, sticky days.
According to David Wolfe, coconut water is important for electrolyte replacement. Not just for those sweaty days of being in the sun or as hangover cures, but he states that some medical professionals have used it for IV hydration in emergency situations. So during an intense morning vinyasa class, drinking coconut water really helps replenish some of the electrolytes lost. Better yet, drinking it an hour before your yoga class can really help keep you hydrated.
Deeply rooted yoga practices are supposed to be conducted on an empty stomach. It is suggested to have a clear bowel prior to practice to rid your body of toxins. Some may need a boost of energy prior to an early morning class and coconut water is the perfect answer. Young coconut water can also help with digestion.
