What is that one thing you should never forget to do at the beach? Well, athletes will say swimming, and creative types will say building sandcastles! The more romantic people would say watching the sunset, while the foodies will say enjoying the BBQ!
If you ask us, however, our answer would be yoga! Not only is this activity healthy for you, but it allows you to make the most out of the relaxing atmosphere that beaches are well known for.
That said, if you want to make the most out of your beach yoga, here are a few tips to keep in mind:
1. Stay hydrated
Always stay hydrated no matter what, especially at the beach. That is because you are outside, and the elements are there to drain you of your liquids. Before you head out to the beach, be sure to drink up. Do not forget to bring a large bottle of water with you to drink during your breaks.
2. Go early
Yoga is best enjoyed when the air is cool, which is precisely what you will get early in the morning. The environment then is much more comfortable, and the air itself is much easier to breathe in. Plus, not many people are there at that time, meaning that there is more peace to allow you to feel total relaxation.
That said, if you are not much of a morning person, you can enjoy your yoga in the evening. The air is just as cool then, but you might have to sacrifice a little bit of peace and quiet since people still might be hanging around.
3. Put on sunscreen
The last thing you want to deal with after a perfect session of yoga is sunburn. Not only will this ruin the entire experience for you, but any further plans of yoga might also be canceled. Save yourself the headache, and be sure to put on sunscreen all over yourself. It also helps if you pick a shady spot to stay extra safe. Plus, it is much cooler there, too.
4. Use the waves
The waves are like nature’s metronome. Their rhythmic crashing can be used to control your breathing, allowing you to reach a state of perfect calmness and experience the feeling of being one with nature. Plus, the sound of the rushing waters can seriously help quiet your mind, enabling you to feel relaxed quicker.
5. Enjoy the distractions
While you are there on the beach enjoying yoga, you should know that it is never free from distraction. From birds’ chirping to children running on the sand, there will be many things that might interrupt your concentration. Rather than trying to block them out, however, accept them and make them part of your activity. What is important here is to enjoy yourself and everything that surrounds you.
While the beach is not exactly what you call the perfect place when it comes to being distraction-free, it still is one of the best places to enjoy yoga. With the natural, cool breeze blowing over your skin and the rhythmic ocean that helps guide your breathing, you will find that your yoga session is taken to a whole new level that you may have never imagined before. You will reach levels of peace you never thought possible, and you will finally achieve the ultimate sense of being one with your surroundings.
