2. You Can Take A Dip Before And/Or After
Taking yoga on the beach means you’re on the beach! So before or after you contort your body into various poses, you can take a dip into the ocean. What an amazing way to start and end your workout!
3. The Sun Will Give You Life
While many people preach the dangers of the sun, there are actually many benefits! Vitamin D from sun exposure provides calcium balance, regulates blood pressure, and helps boost energy levels.
4. Fresh Air Does A Body Good
Breathing is one of the main focuses of yoga. Beach air filling the lungs? Yes please! Fresh air has many benefits such as building the immune system, improving metabolism and giving one a sense of satisfaction by changing the serotonin levels in the brain. I can get skinny just by breathing fresh air!? What?!
5. Stress Disappears
You have to try to be stressed when you’re on the beach. It’s just impossible! Many yoga instructors vocally evoke imagery of calming nature, but there’s no need when you’re actually ON the beach.
6. It’s The Most Relaxing Thing Ever
What’s more relaxing than being on the beach, listening to the waves crashing and smelling the sea salt…oh, doing yoga in the setting. Honestly, letting nature do it’s thing while you stretch your muscles beyond your comfort zone.
7. It Makes You Stronger
Sand is very unstable and uneven. Practicing on an uneven surface like sand builds the secondary muscles in your feet, hips, knees and shoulder joints. Strong legs anyone? And let’s not forget how supportive the sand is for your feet!
