Outdoor Yoga will Make you Happy!
Corbeaux Team - May 4 2020
Outdoor Yoga is meditation in motion. A harmony of mind, body, spirit and nature.
Consistent Yoga practice can be life changing for both body and mind. It helps keep your body young, lean and supple. The controlled breathing techniques aid in reducing stress and anxiety. It is also a great way to support your immune system.
"The goal is to make your heartbeat match the beat of the universe, to match your nature with nature.” - Joseph Campbell
The outdoor Yoga experience
Many Yoga poses such as Tree Pose and Tadasana (Mountain Pose) are named after animals and nature, so what better place is there to do Yoga than the outdoors? Studios with windows to the outdoors enhance the overall experience, but being able to breathe fresh air and feel the breeze against your skin is another experience altogether.
Outdoor Yoga near or around a body of water can enhance the experience, for example if the water is glassy, we are aware of stillness within ourselves. If the water is flowing, our vinyasa practice can mirror the movement of the water.
“Look at the trees, look at the birds, look at the clouds, look at the stars and if you have eyes you will be able to see that the whole existence is joyful. Everything is simply happy. Trees are happy for no reason; they are not going to become prime ministers or presidents and they are not going to become rich and they will never have any bank balance. Look at the flowers — for no reason. It is simply unbelievable how happy flowers are.” Osho
The outdoors allows the power of nature to heal us—the sun on our skin, the fresh air, the scents, and sounds. Maybe you hear birds chirp as they fly overhead? Try something new and take your mat outside and expand your Yoga practice with outdoor Yoga
