How To Do Yoga On The Beach
There are not a lot of things more enjoyable and relaxing than doing a bit of yoga on the beach (that is, if you are a fan of yoga - or perhaps even if you are not!), but before you can go out there and start in with your yoga, you will need to make sure you are taking the proper steps to properly do yoga on the beach. One mistake a lot of people make is that they try to do yoga on the beach in the same clothes they would usually wear to the beach, but instead of going out there in a small bikini, it would be much smarter to wear the clothes you usually wear for yoga, as this will ensure that you are comfortable and have a full range of motion without showing off more of your body than you might have intended to. You should also keep in mind the fact that yoga is meant to be relaxing, but if you end up on a part of the beach with a lot of kids running around or college students drinking and yelling, it will not be very relaxing at all; choose a flat area - preferably with packed sand, such as you will find after the tide has gone out - that is far enough away from all the other action of the beach that you will be able to enjoy a bit of peace and quiet. And although yogis will usually advise you to face the sun when you are doing yoga - especially when you are doing yoga outside - doing yoga on the beach certainly allows you to break this rule, as facing the ocean while doing your yoga can provide the optimal amount of relaxation and unwinding; if you find this to be the case for yourself, do not worry about where the sun is so much as you worry about where the ocean is. By making sure you are keeping these things in mind, you will be able to enjoy some yoga on the beach that will help you unwind and relax like nearly nothing else can!
