In Yoga (Union) the body and breath are intimately connected with the mind. By controlling the breath and holding the body in poses, yoga creates harmony. The postures are designed to ease tensed muscles, to tone up internal organs and to improve flexibility of the body’s joints and ligaments.
The Benefits of Yoga
• HATHA YOGA – Purifies body and mind through the use of postures, gestures, breath control and cleansing techniques.
• VINJASA FLOW – The Yoga postures run smoothly together in a sequence synchronising breath and movement.
• RESTORATIVE YOGA – Deeply nurturing and gentle practice to relax and revitalise your body and mind.For a diver, the essential elements of yoga can significantly reduce your likelihood of injury. Specific exercises can improve core stability, working on the lower back to protect it from trauma of twin sets and weight belts. Targeting the legs and hips can improve your finning technique, stamina and your general fitness, improving your flexibility and making diving a whole lot easier, especially for wreck and cave diving.
For those who want to slow down on their gas consumption, the breathing exercises fundamental in yoga are also ideal for improving lung capacity and encouraging effective, steady breathing and ultimately extend your time.
