It can sometimes feel too hot and humid to get your exercise in, but keeping your heart pumping and muscles loose are important in all seasons!

Start off your session with a few rounds of sun salutation and then move into pigeon pose. Exhale and lean forward, leading with your heart and head toward the floor. Repeat, moving like a wave through your spine: Roll up on the inhale, and reverse as you release on the exhale. Do this 5 to 10 times, then rest your head on your thumbs or the backs of your hands.
