5 Ways To Chill Your Yoga This Summer

Yoga | Yoga for Beginners

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.
