As you could read in our 5 best things about Yoga blogpost, there are no physical or mental problems yoga could not treat. First and foremost, yoga is the best way to slow down, concentrate solely on yourself and thanks to the endorphin release in your brain, you easily get happier and reinvigorated. Besides, getting fit will make you feel both energetic and confident. Last but not least, yoga makes you super flexible and strong while increase your balance and stamina to a higher level.
How Yoga can benefit Surfing
One of the biggest benefits of yoga for surf is the physical strength that is indispensable to be able to stay on the board. Balance, upper body and core strength are crucial for the learning process. Furthermore, acquiring breathing techniques on the yoga session helps successfully handle unexpected situations in the water and accept an environment that is not controlled by humans. A key essence of yoga is the repetition of movements that teach the body and mind how even a small adjustment can change a pose. From some perspective, it is crucial in surfing as well.
How Surfing can benefit Yoga
Believe it, when we say that there is no time to be thinking about anything else during surfing but the thing that is happening to you at that moment. Additionally, it develops your skill to be able to live in the moment not only on the surfboard but on the yoga mat and in your personal life too. This helps you forget about everyday problems, get rid of stress and quiet your mind. On the other hand, it will also make you focus more on carrying out the exercises on your next yoga class.
Over the past few decades, it has become more and more clear that surf and yoga are not so separate, moreover, they instead go together like two peas in a pod. While stretching movements of yoga reduces muscle pain and accelerates the recovery process after an exhausting surf session, surf makes you completely focused on the moment.
Even if you have a keen interest only in one of these two activities, we highly and honestly suggest you to try our Surf and Sun Package. With the daily surf lessons and two yoga sessions you will clearly understand the connection between them and if you have an experience in any of them, the difference will be obvious.
