And now to the ritual and rhythm of the season...
Last month we passed the peak of summer on the 21st June.
The days and nights can feel steamy - even if the sun ain’t got it's hat on.
Personally I like to stay cool, calm and collected.
Especially when I am trudging around the URBAN jungle that is London!
HOW do I do it?
By respecting the rhythms of the day AND season my beauties!
Here’s a snap shot:
On hotter days I typically tweak:
YOGA practices: Opt for moon salutations for morning stretching; additionally I invite pauses in tadasana or childs pose between the flow.
BREATHING: Sitali(cooling) pranayama for breathing exercises
DIET: Favour bitter, sweet and astringent tastes for meals (all in moderation and with augmenting and extractive foods balance).
bitter taste: dark leafy greens; dandelion root and mint leaf tea; cucumber water; aloe vera
sweet taste: cooked whole grains and sweet root veggies (I especially use organic barley mixed with organic basmati white rice 2-4 times a week as part of a meal);
Astringent taste: summer/Mediterranean flavoured moong dal (lentils) - with mint and coriander garnish.
MEAL TIMES: Plan the main meal for midday and typically take lighter items at breakfast and dinner.
OUT & ABOUT: Me & my HAT! Sun visa, floppy hat, TURBAN(!) keeps the sun off my head and face. I also try to avoid moving around in the middle of the day, I enjoy walks or plan errands during the cooler times of the day.
