While some yoga fans are drawn to hot yoga, and enjoy the intensity, it isn’t for everyone. I’m suggesting that everyone just chill out during the summer – that means you hot yoga fans, and cranky people. Even the locals of southern India, where it’s hot and humid year-round, head indoors for cooler temperatures to do yoga.
So here are a few suggestions to chill your summer.
1. Turn Off The Heat
Why on earth do you need more heat? Especially if it’s 95 degrees outside. Your body needs a break.
2. Do Yoga In The Water Or On A Stand Up Paddleboard
Water is the ultimate refresher.

5. Slow The Pace Of Your Practice
Move with the full inhale and exhales of your breath. Don’t be in a hurry to get to the next pose.
