Pranayama - Sitali- Cooling Breath - (Or, Taco Breath!)

About This Class

Our journey into the Pranayama series continues! Learn SITALI, the cooling breath, or as I like to call it - TACO BREATH! I believe a breath practice has so much power. It can transform your patterns in the mind and body and can empower. Great after a run, a workout, an argument or when you need something simple to connect to the big picture - whatever that means to you. Balance your POWER YOGA class, your cardio, your crossfit with SITALI! Use pranayama to tend to yourself.

Practice this one when you need to calm down, cool off,  relax or decompress. This is a great one for when you feel discomfort from anxiety. This breath can  help you focus, relieve you from that pissed off feeling and is also great when you are physically heated in the body. Offering a nice controlled breath to cool down. This breath is great when you or a loved one is agitated. Great for the kiddos! Also awesome before big meetings, tests or if you are finding it hard to go to sleep.

It may seem weird at first - but let's get the whole world doing taco breath as an aide to stress, anxiety, etc!

Grow this practice with a focus on that long smooth exhale, activate your body's relaxation response... and feel the difference. Don't worry if you cannot roll your tongue - I got you.
