Water sports or the different activities on the beach are ideal to keep us active.
Yoga is one of the disciplines that most lend themselves to leave the room the gym or study to be practiced outdoors. On the beach, we can take advantage of the sea breeze and the sound of the waves to get a full body-mind connection experience.
That is why this week we propose seven different Yoga positions ideal for performing on the beach. Save 15 minutes first thing in the morning or at sunset to keep getting fit this summer.
As always, we remind you that you can follow our weekly challenges through the Instagram profile, where we will offer you tips and advice on each of the positions. All publications will be marked with the hashtag so you can easily find them and save them.
Seven Yoga poses to practice on the beach
- Triangle or Trikonasana posture: extend your towel and use it as an improvised mat to perform this posture on it. Improve the mobility of your shoulders in preparation for doing some lengths in the seawater.
- Tree posture or Vrksasana: a simple posture that tests our balance, more on an irregular surface such as beach sand. Remember that you can rest your foot in the air on the twin or on the thigh, but not on the knee to avoid possible injuries.
- The posture of the fish or Matsyasana: ideal for correcting the position of advanced shoulders and neck. If you are a beginner, you need support in the lower back and you do not have a few blocks of Yoga on hand, you can always make a pile of sand under the towel to rest your back.
- Raven posture or Kakasana: one of the great fears when practicing the raven posture is to head on the ground (although it rarely happens). Make a pile of sand on which you can rest your head to start practicing (yoga blocks are usually used for this purpose) and to get to balance without help.
- Posture of the arch or Dhanurasana: look for a place where the sand is soft and not compact (that is not wet, stay away from the area closest to the sea) to perform this Yoga posture. Through it, you will also improve the mobility of your shoulders.
- The posture of the dancer or Natarajasana: in this case, the sand as an irregular and unstable surface will make it a little more complicated to maintain balance. Take the proprioception to work with bare feet on the sand.
- Balancing on the head or Sirsasana: if you think that the parquet floor that is usually found in gyms and studios is too hard to perform this balance on the head, the sand is your best friend. Remember to do pension with your elbows and forearms on the sand to facilitate the climb.
