Cautions for Summer Yoga

Here are some reminders for summer yoga:

Avoid doing asanas in direct sunlight, except at dawn or dusk.

Do not do dynamic sun salutations, especially 12 rounds. It may overheat the body.  Switch to a more passive sequence that allows the body time to settle and rest in each asana for a comfortable amount of time.

Chair yoga is not strenuous and if your body is comfortable with it, it is fine to practice in a comfortable, cool room.

Avoid agnisar, bhastrika, kapalbhati, and surya bhedha. Instead practice sitali and seetkari, the two cooling breaths. Non-heating breaths are fine.

Happy July4th!
