Benefits Of Oudoor Yoga Confirmed

 

 

Not that we need any official confirmation of what we experience first hand after every yoga class on Siesta Key beach but for the sceptics and the uninitiated here is some scientific proof.
A systematic review carried out by a team at the Peninsula College of Medicine and Dentistry has analysed existing studies and concluded that there are benefits to mental and physical well-being from taking exercise in the natural environment. Their findings are published in the research journal Environmental Science and Technology on February 4th 2011.

Eligible trials were those that compared the effects of outdoor exercise initiatives with those conducted indoors and which reported at least one physical or mental well-being outcome in adults or children.

The study found that most trials showed an improvement in mental well-being: compared with exercising indoors, exercising in natural environments was associated with greater feelings of revitalization, increased energy and positive engagement, together with decreases in tension, confusion, anger and depression. Participants also reported greater enjoyment and satisfaction with outdoor activity and stated that they were more likely to repeat the activity at a later date.

Is it any wonder that we feel so good after our yoga classes on the beach not only are we exercising outdoors but we are doing it on a crystal bed of sand while breathing in fresh sea air and being super charged with sunshine and invisible energetic ions coming off the surf of the Gulf of Mexico. There is simply no where else I would rather be.
