It is well known that being by the ocean has great benefits for your health and mental well-being. A sea getaway helps you de-stress, boosts your immune system, and improves your mood. Moreover, it can be a great opportunity to escape, relax, and recharge. But there is one activity that lets you enjoy the sea in a peaceful way, yoga on the beach.
Hotel Mousai is one of the best all-Inclusive resorts in Puerto Vallarta; it is famous for its wellness activities like complimentary kayaking, snorkeling, hiking tours, and yoga classes. Some of the benefits of practicing yoga near the ocean are:
Connecting with Nature
We are part of nature, but sometimes we forget this. While practicing yoga on the beach, you can observe Mother Nature in all its beautiful forms. Further into your practice, you will start noticing things you didn’t before like the sound of the waves, the beautiful colors, even the salted scent of the ocean and its fresh air.
Once you reach your zen zone, you will start noticing how your thoughts and emotions are calmer – your thoughts will quiet down, creating more space for your intuition and the connection to nature. A specific event, like a new moon or full moon, can help you connect more with your inner self and manifest that energy into your life.
The sound of the ocean will put you in a meditative mood, and if you start breathing to the rhythm of the waves, you will start delivering oxygen to your body while connecting to the surroundings. It will bring a sense of peace to your day.
Improving Overall Well-Being
Studies have shown that practicing yoga improves well-being and results in better sleep, weight loss, and happiness. A regular yoga practice can improve your life on many different levels; you have the energy to adopt better habits, a healthier diet, and more exercise.
The major cause of mood swings has to do with our inability to manage stress in our life. To travel sometimes can add stress to our body since you are in a different and unknown environment, to add some yoga into your traveling can help the mind to slip into meditation easily and reduce your levels of stress, calming your nervous system.
Expanding your Horizons
To have your yoga session in a different setting can help you get out of your comfort zone. When you do yoga in a different place, you start noticing things about your practice that you otherwise wouldn’t have noticed. You may feel your body and poses different, therefore you get to learn something new about yourself.
Moreover, practicing yoga on the sand is much harder. It takes more balance, coordination, and strength for your poses to be held, so you get a better workout. Doing yoga on sand strengthens your muscles and helps you have a better understanding of your entire body. Also, practicing on sand can help improve your balance in different positions and you can try new challenging poses by making small adjustments.
Getting Some Vitamin Sea
To be exposed to sunlight has different health benefits. Although it is important to protect yourself from getting too much sun, it is also important to make sure you get enough of it. Finding the right amount of sunshine helps you maintain the right dose of Vitamin D in your system.
Vitamin D is a necessary nutrient in our body; it helps keep bones healthy, reduces inflammation, and boosts the immune system. Some studies have shown a link between Vitamin D and lower blood pressure. Also, being exposed to the sun’s rays causes skin to produce beta-endorphins, which reduce pain and help to create a sensation of well-being by boosting your brain’s production of serotonin. So, enjoy your holidays by soaking up some sunshine while practicing yoga on the beach!
