Enhance the cooling effect of these poses by soaking a rag in water, diluted with grapefruit or mint essential oil. Cool the rag in the refrigerator for 20 minutes and place along the neck or on the forehead.
The practice of Shitali Pranayama, before sunrise, increases memory and intelligence. This Pranayama refreshes the body, mind, and purifies the blood. It removes excess heat in the body and cools the system, thus reducing anger, anxiety, and stress. This is best done in the heat of the summer.
As always, drink plenty of water and be aware of the body .If you feel uncomfortable, stop. Yoga should be steady and joyful and never forced. Enjoy the cooling practice and remember February when we had 40 inches of snow!!!
