Beach Yoga Classes
Yoga on the beach
Adelaide beach yoga classes are a great way to enjoy both the beach and a regular yoga practice. By practicing yoga on the beach you will boost your creativity and promote relaxation.
Our brain becomes more relaxed when we are in nature and by relaxing our brain we become more mindful and creative. We also reduce our stress levels, anxiety whilst getting all the benefits of a yoga and mindfulness practice.
By being outdoors we have higher levels of physical activity and we get a healthy supply of oxygen. The ocean air helps us to build a strong immune system whilst the ocean also improve our metabolism which can benefit serotonin levels in the brain.
Some more benefits of beach yoga
By practicing yoga at the beach our posture also gets a great workout. This is because the sandy beach can strengthen our muscles in the feet, knees, shoulder joints and hips. However, be warned that balancing poses may be a little bit more challenging.
Beach yoga classes also let us get a healthy dose of Vitamin D which can lack when we are indoors and out of the sun-light. This is a very real concern and many people can suffer from SAD. SAD is an abbreviation for Seasonal Affective Disorder, especially if we do not get much sun or vitamin D.
