Heat and Exercise
During the heatwave it has become a bit of a chore to stay cool! As many of you already know I feel hot in the middle of Winter.... So to be able to teach in this heat a few things have been implemented.
1/ Flannels and plenty of them Frozen overnight then placed into a cool bag to take to class.
2/ Fans, Working out outside in the shade.
3/ Sleep..... Wet a T-shirt or a sheet and place it over yourself (not dripping wet)! If you have a fan blow that on you as well.
4/ Keep all curtains closed all the time.
The body can only be strong if all systems are working effectively and together...
This is why to start with I work on the breath and then add in moves, slowly with control and focus. If you want to do one thing to improve your body's function it would be to BREATHE!
Lets starts.... Get comfortable......Close your eyes......Just Breathe.....
Inhale and Exhale..... With each Inhale try to focus on filling your ribs breathing wide and full (lateral Thoracic Breathing) slowly count to 5 as you Inhale and 5 as you Exhale, get the feeling of fullness.
