Make the best of the HEAT!
Does the Summer Heat make you FEEL Agitated, Groggy or Spacey

If so, you are not alone!  

Below are a couple of my favorite ways to remain cool and collected in the elevated summer heat, or whenever you feel a rise in agitation!

Sitali or Skiari Pranayamaknown as the Cooling Breath, helps to cool and temper the body, balance Pitta energy. It simmers anger, and agitation and can help to reduce appetite, thirst, and fatigue, and more.

To practice, inhale through the curled extended tongue (Sitali Pranayama) or place the tongue at the roof of your mouth (Sikari Pranayama), then exhale.

Once you exhale, the tongue is drawn back into the mouth, lips close at the end of inhalation. Exhale through the throat or nose.

With the eyes remained closed or at a soft gaze, do this breath for at least 20 repetitions. Pause and sense how you feel. Use as often as needed to experience an overall sense of coolness. 

Another favorite way is to sip water with a drop of Peppermint Vitality throughout your day to maintain a cooling balance and to uplift your energy. Or you can place a drop on the back of your neck or temples to cool down quickly. 

Contact me for free audio of this breathing practice with a mini Yoga Nidra or receive a sample of Peppermint Essential Oil.

Stay cool and enjoy the summer!
