Keeping Cool - physically & emotionally

It's been a hot summer here in Byron Bay so I've found relief in cooling forward bending postures and restorative inversions like this simple Chair Rest that inverts the legs and calms the nervous system. 

Weighting down the legs with a sand bag or bolsters has a deeply soothing and grounding affect on the whole being. Be here for 10-20 min for deep restoration. Great to do before dinner as a transition into your evening time. 

Feeling the heat? Try rubbing coconut oil into the body before showering and finishing showers with a minute of cold water - so invigorating for the skin and strengthening for the immune system. A great way to start the day.
 
A dedicated practice cultivates emotional stability and restorative yoga postures are so nourishing and cooling during times of stress and dealing with life's changes.
 
Needing restorative inspiration? I often practice B.K.S Iyengar's Emotional Stability Sequence found at the back of his book 'Light on Life'. Using lots of yoga props the mental calm that comes from the practice is profound, the physical rest so healing...buy online at www.iyogaprops.com.au or Amazon.
