It’s Hot in Alabama, ya’ll! Check Out This Cool and Calming Yoga Routine Just For You

Quite Frankly, It’s Too Hot to do Anything

Oh my goodness! The heat in Alabama has been stifling these past few weeks, right? I had to teach at a wellness event last week at an apartment complex in Homewood. It was literally 99 degrees! And it was by the pool which made it even hotter. I will not be doing that again. Hopefullly, the next wellness event will be in the Fall when it is nice and cool and the leaves are changing colors.

In sharing all that, the class inspired me to put together a cool and calming Yoga routine to be done INSIDE and not by the pool.

Cool and Calming Yoga Routine

Here is a list of poses that you can do when you need to feel calm and relaxed this summer demonstrated by some of my clients.

  • Reserve Warrior

  • Chair

  • Standing Spilts

  • Partner stretching

  • One Leg Downward Dog

  • Legs Up the Wall

  • Butterfly (with your dog)

  • Modified Low Lunge

  • Savasana

One of my favorite poses is savasana because I get to take a nice little nap at the end of the class. ;) Tell me what your favorite Yoga pose is in the comments below.

I hope everyone has a cool and calming Yoga practice through August. If you are interested in signing up for private or semi-private Yoga or Personal Training sessions, you can click this link to find out more.
