Practice Beach Yoga in Phuket

Just because you’re on holiday is no reason to skip your daily yoga practice. By taking your yoga routine to the beach and practicing in the sunshine and fresh air you’ll be giving your body and mind extra benefits that you may not be aware of.

 

We'll tell you why everyone should be practicing beach yoga whenever they get the chance. It'll revitalise you, and you'll probably miss it once you return home. But for the time you're in Phuket, indulge yourself in the luxury of practicing yoga on a beautiful, tropical beach.

 

You also don’t need to confine yourself to the popular beaches around the island. Go exploring to find that deserted beach on the island that allows you the silence and serenity to meditate on your yoga. They are out there just waiting to be found.

 

Breathing Fresh and Clean Sea Air

There is something about breathing sea air that seems to make people think clearer. The clean, fresh air that's been blowing across the ocean to reach your beach contains beneficial negative ions because they make the oxygen easier to absorb into your body.

 

The salt in the air has anti-bacterial properties as well. If you’ve been trying to get over a cold, flu or other illness, breathing this salty air can aid in your recovery.

All the Vitamin D a Body Needs

Spending time outdoors provides you with a dose of vitamin D that you need to regulate the calcium and phosphate in your body. A lack of vitamin D can lead to autoimmune diseases, plus vitamin D is a contributing facet to the health of your bones and muscle tissue, which every practitioner of yoga knows they need to keep in the best shape they can to further enable and improve their practice of yoga.

Improve Your Relaxation – Spend Time Communing with Nature

It's sometimes hard to put our fingers on just why being out in the natural world feels so much better than being indoors, but there is denying that this is the case. A balmy breeze on our face and the sounds of the waves lapping up on the shore are enough to make us forget our daily problems and relax a little easier.

 

Exercising outdoors can positively affect your nervous system and trigger an increase in your creativity as well. Exercising under electric lights in an air-conditioned room is not what the human body was meant for. We all seem to get an extra mental and physical boost whenever we have the opportunity to get outdoors for some exercise.

Leaving Your Comfort Zone Can Work Wonders

Sometimes just getting a different perspective of your yoga practice is all it takes to make you see possibilities for the routine that you had missed before. If all you have known is practicing yoga in an indoor studio, getting outdoors can challenge you in ways you never even considered.

 

The wind, sun, and sea may be distracting at first. But that should make you concentrate on your breathing and your body even harder. Work with the challenges and see how your mind and body reacts to them. It could be enlightening and point out flaws in your routine that you hadn't noticed before.

 

Utilise Your Surroundings

The sand may take some getting used to, but it can act provide support for your lower back and hips. It’s also a soft surface and provides a soft landing if you want to take advantage of its forgiving nature and try some poses that have proven to be difficult for you in the past. It’s also an uneven surface. You should definitely use a mat on top of it, to provide some evenness to your area.

 

Finally, you’ve undoubtedly been staring at the beautiful blue sea as you’ve been practicing your routine in the shining sun and working up a sweat. Treat yourself to a refreshing swim as a reward for keeping to your routine, even when you’re on holiday.
