While yoga indoors is relaxing enough, the sound of water and the sea breeze is known to enhance the entire experience significantly. Yoga on a Beach in Mandrem is only one good spot in Go, but the best that easily delivers on this promise. Yoga Teacher Training in a space such as this will help induce a meditative state of calm focus, and help you relieve stress, tension, anger and depression, as well as boost your energy.

2.)  Boost your Creativity

Imagine yoga teacher training in Gokarna in the middle of all that is good about nature – the jungle, palm trees and the ocean. Exercise in a space like that greatly enhances your creativity, simply by helping you introspect and reflect in a wide, natural space and giving your imagination free reign.

3.)  Build your Immunity

Our yoga teacher training centres in Goa and Gokarna boast great beaches and outdoor spaces, leading to a fresher air and a healthy supply of oxygen. Moreover, the air by the sea is high in levels of iodine and ozone, which helps one develop a strong immunity system.

4.)  Strengthen your Muscles

It feels great to have your feet sink into the sand; the realisation that it is also great for your body is a cherry on top. Unstable surfaces are known to strengthen the secondary muscles of your joints, hips & feet. Your posture also greatly benefits from the exercise.

5.)  Say Hello to the Sun

Long working hours usually entail whole days that are spent indoors without any exposure to the sun. This leads to a deficiency of Vitamin D in a number of individuals. Yoga on the beach gives one a boost in this essential vitamin, even on a cloudy day. 

6.)  Wake up to the Beach

Few would argue about the benefits of starting your day well. The sea and some energising asanas make for a great start to a day full of activities.

7.)  Enrich Your Senses

When were the last time you felt the cold sand under your feet and the salty sea breeze on your face? These sensations can help your body in different ways by heightening your senses and invigorating your mind.

8.)  Breathe in the Fresh Air

The breeze from the sea contains negative ions that actually help your body absorb oxygen, and boost your serotonin levels. The result? A happier you.

9.)  Learn the Art of Adaptation

Our homes, colleges and workplaces are all constructed to make us as comfortable as possible, alienating us from the natural environment. But when you’re doing yoga on a beach, you have to face the sun, the wind and the cold. This practice helps you adjust and adapt to whatever situation you find yourself in, encouraging you to find peace in every setting.

10.)  Beaches are awesome
