It is great if you enjoy the heat and love to sweat but if you feel grumpy, exhausted and over heated, I have an easy tip that will cool you off instantly!
Have you ever tried to cool off using your breath?
Pranayama is one of the 8 limbs of yoga. It's a practice that is accessible to most, if not all of us. Prana is our life force, loosely translated as the breath. Pranayama is the study and the practice of the extension of our life force. In other word, extend your breath and you will extend your life.
Sitali breath is a breath practiced to cool off our body and mind. It is often referred to as the "cooling breath". it can help our mind by bringing more focus, reduce feelings of anger or agitation and lessen anxious feelings. It also physically brings a cooling sensation to the body.
