Sequence To Prepare For A Hot Day

We're looking at some filthy hot and sticky days here in New York City of temperatures in the 90's and heat indexes at around 100. I love the Summer (and I say that without irony). Here's a short practice designed to stimulate the parasympathetic nervous system to keep you cool and hydrated. I'm off to do it now before heading out to my first class.

Supta Baddha Konasana (Reclined Bound Angle Pose)

Supta Padangusthasana 2 (Reclined Big Toe Pose 2)

Uttanasana (Intense Stretch Pose)
• head resting on blocks

Prasarita Padottanasana 1 (Wide Spread Feet Pose1)
• head supported on floor or on blocks

Sarvangasana (Shoulder Stand)
• variation: over chair

Setu Bandha (Bridge Pose)
• over bolster

Shavasana (Corpse Pose)
