During yoga classes a few weeks ago we practiced the "Cooling Breath." (Sitali or Sitkari Pranayama) Today a student shared a story of how he used the Cooling Breath outside of class.
Bob likes to walk the canal, usually around a mile each time. The other day, Bob found himself walking on a humid day. When Bob had walked halfway, he found himself feeling weary. Bob sat on a bench and practiced the Cooling Breath. Bob says the breathing helped him feel better and was able to complete his walk.
I love hearing all of your stories of yoga in your life!
I enjoy yoga as it brings peace to my life. Teaching yoga has brought joy to my life and given me a chance to encourage others in learning yoga.
