Dear Beautiful Human,

Last week I gave you some suggestions for pitta season ( blog post here) and one of them was to use cooling breaths in your yoga practice. You may not be familiar with these specific pranayama practices so I thought I would share them with you in this how to video: watch now

I describe two specific cooling pranayamas called Sitail & Sitkari. They are so helpful during the summer or anytime you feel you are experiencing too much heat either physically or mentally. Feeling physically hot is obvious. Feeling mentally “hot” means you are quick to anger, have a short fuse, are easily frustrated and overly critical. You might also just feel wound up. These breath tools will help reduce both heat and intensity.

Stay cool and stay calm this summer.
