A morning yoga practice composed of the following poses can counter the fiery energy of the hot summer season. On its own or as part of our Ayurvedic weekend retreat, this series is designed to energize without overheating and can be done at home in as little as 30 minutes.
Lie face down, hands by your sides, palms facing up, legs together. Bending at the knees, bring your heels as close to your buttocks as possible. Raise your head, keeping your chin on the floor, then reach back with your hands and grasp your ankles firmly. Pull with your legs and arms, raising your head, chest, knees, and thighs off the floor. Raise your clasped legs as high as possible, keeping the spine relaxed. Rest your entire body weight on your navel. Breathe in and slowly exhale. Hold for 5 to 10 breaths, then release. Repeat the pose two times.
