Outdoor yoga, let you relax and enjoy life
Many studies have confirmed that outdoor activities not only help reduce obesity, but also effectively relieve stress. In particular, activities in the forest can help the body regulate autonomic nerves, increase the activity of parasympathetic nerves and slow down the stress response. At the same time, it improves endocrine and reduces stress. Therefore, I decided to go out indoors and practice yoga outdoors to experience the wisdom handed down from ancient India. But doubt came. What equipment should I bring for outdoor yoga? Therefore, I consulted my yoga teacher and did it under her guidance. If you also want to practice yoga outdoors, don’t know what, I hope this will help you.
Which position is more suitable
Parks, grasslands, alpine forests and seaside beaches are good choices. But no matter where you are, you must choose a relatively flat ground and avoid stepping on uneven ground. However, one of the benefits of outdoor yoga is that compared with indoors, outdoor ground can train muscles and balance deeper.
Do you need to bring a yoga mat and wear yoga clothes
Wearing yoga clothes is necessary because the design of yoga clothes is designed in conjunction with the stretching of yoga itself, so that the effect of training can be achieved. Although other sportswear is comfortable and simple, they may not be suitable for the stretching exercises required for yoga. Stretching, wrapping and quick drying. Therefore, yoga clothes are still required. Bringing a yoga mat depends on the situation. If you want to do yoga to soothe your body and mind after climbing or jogging, you don't need to prepare a yoga mat, you can practice some gentle vertical yoga exercises for moderate stretching. If you want to do more sitting and lying positions, but don't want to touch the ground directly, you can use a yoga mat. Worry about uneven ground, you can also use a yoga mat to make your movements more stable and comfortable.
Which time of day is better
At noon, because the sun is very big, overexposure can easily cause discomfort, so the weather is too cold or too hot to practice yoga outdoors. Therefore, it is best in the cool morning or evening. The morning is the time when everything gradually wakes up. There are few active people and the environment is relatively quiet. You can concentrate on practicing yoga.
Yoga attaches great importance to the connection between the inner self and the outer environment, so in India, many people go out to do yoga. Once you are outdoors, your attention must be spread. If you can perceive the interaction between your body and the environment, your attention will naturally increase. Every time you stretch, bend and twist, you will feel deeper and improve the softness of your body.
