One of yoga's (many) beauties is it can be done anywhere. Practicing yoga in the outdoors is an unparalleled experience.
A recent Swedish study found viewing nature, especially fractals (the organically occurring patterns in tree branches and fern leaves for example), increased wakeful relaxation and internal focus - two pretty important components of a rewarding yoga practice.
Nature connects us to our roots. The grass, the ocean, lakes, trees and mountains are all part of our primeval world. While a vigorous hike has its own benefits, practicing yoga outside can transform a stagnant routine into a heightened experience.
Here are four ways that work:
Spending time in nature can replenish depleted energy.
Natural scenery can heighten awareness.
Practicing yoga in a new environment can build confidence.
The outdoor's can further boost meditation benefits.
Practicing solo or as a class in a fresh-air setting takes the notion of connection to a whole other level of awareness. Unique idea for a group of girl friends, neighbors or lake communities.
Sessions available as 60 or 90 minutes.
