Have you been thinking about a yoga retreat near the beach? Practising yoga outdoors in beautiful weather is a luxury for our bodies. Beaches are an ideal place to practice while being in contact with nature. It’s certainly true that one of life’s greatest pleasures is being in contact with nature, enriching ourselves with all of the positive benefits it provides.

Many of us think that flexibility is the most important thing when it comes to practising yoga, when it’s actually our breathing. Knowing how to control it will help us achieve a desired pose, and movements will be more fluid. On a yoga retreat, you will learn new techniques to control your breathing, and practices that you can incorporate into your yoga routine. Also, Valencia’s beautiful natural spaces offer cleaner, healthier air, which is quite beneficial for our bodies.
The practice of yoga is quite useful when it comes to bringing our bodies and minds into balance. By being exposed to natural sunlight, practising yoga on the beach adds even more health benefits, such as vitamin D production, better calcium synthesis, and improved energy by breathing in the oxygen provided by fresh air. All of these reasons means practising yoga in Valencia will help you experience the activity’s benefits thanks to its enchanting surroundings.
Sand is an irregular and unstable surface, making some postures more complicated than we’re used to, however this stabilisation will help our bodies engage our small muscles and make the exercise more intense and interesting. Beaches help us hold balanced poses standing up, helping us improve and go further with the pose. The beach also makes it easier to hold inverted poses and overcome the fear of falling thanks to the soft sand.
