Personal fitness trainer Delhi, describes Yoga asanas to help you cool your body

Yoga asanas can help you cool your body and hydrate and replenish it. To make a body cool down after asanas that are very challenging, we recommend these asanas. These are cooling postures designed to help your body and mind hydrate and cool down and prevent a burnout. These are simple and easy moves that help to loosen up chronically tight areas. We encourage you to take deep breaths and turn internal air conditioning on. It helps you to decompress.

Whenever I see someone over exerting or sweating too profusely, I lead them through these moves. I know after these, their body will be hydrated and cooled. This is to provide intervals of rest, subside hot headedness and make the mind calm, peaceful and more focused. These give you pockets of rest equivalent to resting on a hammock on a peaceful beach. It is hydrating, restoring, replenishing, soothing and good for mind, body and soul.

It stretches and loosens the hips and spine. It gives breath to the body and calms down the heart and the nerves. Resting the forehead also makes the mind quiet and helps to restore the breath and bring back the focus.
You can do it with back straight up or else the second version where you exhale and lean forward and bend the head down. Your heart bows down and you are in complete surrender.
You may repeat it. Inhale and roll up, exhale and roll down. You can do it 10 times.
 2. Breathing Goddess

 Stimulates the parasympathetic nervous system (which runs the "rest and digest" functions of the body), bringing you into balance.
Lie on your back in goddess pose -- soles of feet together and knees bent, falling away from each other to form a diamond shape (A).

Place one hand on your chest and one on your belly and inhale, feeling the belly and ribs expand (B); let gravity take the breath out. Lie still for at least one minute. Feel your breath become smooth and slow.

3.        Supported Shoulder Stand (A)

It is an inverted posture. But you support it with your hands. It is called sarvangasana because it is good for sarv ang (all the organs). It is mild but does require muscular effort.
 It encourages lymphatic fluid to flow toward the heart, sweeping out toxins and boosting circulation.

Supported Shoulder Stand (B)
You can do the same pose with knees bent directly over hips (B), which let legs relax even more and releases hips.

4.        Taming the Lion- It releases the “Fire”, releases all the tension. Your face, jaw, mind and heart become calm and tension free. To do this, stand straight. Then bend your knees and lift the arms up to the sky. Keep the posture soft and do not lock the joints.

Exhale and fold your torso over your legs, knees bent, and swing your arms down and back, exhaling with a "ha" sound and sticking your tongue out (B). Inhale, keeping knees gently bent, and sweep your arms up to the starting position. Repeat 5 to 10 times.

5.  Belly Savasana

What it does: Soothes and grounds, allowing you to let go of tension in the belly and reconnect your center to the earth.

How to do it: Lie on your belly with elbows out to the sides, one cheek on the floor. Rest for five minutes. If you have low-back discomfort, flip over, or push back into child's pose (knees folded under, upper body and forehead on floor).
Cooling Moves: Why You Need Them
As the temperature rises, our patience and general tolerance levels plummet. But it's not just because we're crazy from the heat. According to Ayurveda, the ancient school of Indian medicine, summer is the season of pitta, or fire. And while that fire has a purpose (to provide the heat needed to spark action and digest food and emotions), too much of that energy can be toxic. If you let your inner heat spiral out of control, you expose yourself to a whole range of 'burning' issues, such as acid reflux, ulcers, sunburn, rashes, impatience, frustration, anger, and anxiety.

To regulate your temperature -- and your temper -- think of your workout as a chance to cool down.
