The Benefits of Practicing Beach Yoga

It should come as no surprise that practicing beach yoga has many health benefits that combine the healing properties of the beachfront with rejuvenating exercises. Some are well-known, like reducing stress and improving flexibility. However, there are also some unexpected benefits. This includes reducing your risk of heart disease, improving your memory, and boosting your immunity. 

Also, the different types of yoga all have their own additional benefits. For example, because vinyasa yoga involves synchronizing your breathing with movement, it can help improve your focus and concentration. In restorative yoga, you hold poses for extended periods, which helps restore your parasympathetic nervous system functions and can help reduce blood pressure.

How to Join a Class during Your Stay

If you'd like to add a yoga session to your Pensacola Beach vacation, you’re in luck. Our fitness center, which overlooks the Santa Rosa Sound, offers a weekly class on Tuesday morning. Classes are open on a first-come basis, so we recommend showing up early to ensure you have a spot. An experienced instructor will lead you through a series of poses designed to help you relax and relieve stress and tension. To learn more, call the fitness center at 850-916-5360.
