We are in our last full month of summer – often some of the hottest days of the year.
What are some yogic techniques to keep your cool?
*Sitali Pranayam: Curl your tongue, stick it out, and inhale through your tongue like it’s a straw. Then slowly exhale through your nose. 1 -3 minutes or as long as you like. (if you can’t curl your tongue, just make your mouth into a small circle)
*Left nostril breath: Block your right nostril with your right thumb and inhale and exhale slowly through your left nostril only. 1 -3 minutes or as long as you like. This helps cool and calm you, and is helpful for anxiety and insomnia!
Just a reminder that the website to check for class schedules, etc., is now www.matashaktiashram.org.
