We want to share with all our friends this interesting article from Sara-Lise Haith explaining  how much beneficial can be the practice of Yoga for a better and healthier scuba dive experience

Budding scuba divers, or even old timers that sometimes go into meltdown just before entering the water can experience difficulty breathing during an entire dive.  Not only is this potentially harmful to your body but it is difficult to find that relaxation point.

Yoga can teach you many techniques and exercises designed to slow your breath and relax your body. Remember, if you calm your breath you will calm your mind and body and your dives will be longer and more enjoyable.  With yoga training you can learn to visualize each stage of your dive, and through increased training you will develop self awareness and notice how your breathing changes and try and keep your breathing slow and relaxed with an extended exhalation as you imagine the dive unfolding.

Yoga and scuba diving hold synergies as they are both ways to practice a fuller and more complete life by venturing out into another existence, and dive operators are advertising more and more well-being experiences as symptoms of unhealthy lifestyles become more evident through medical statistics.  The various breathing techniques you learn in yoga, such as ujjai or pranayama can affect your breathing behavior in other activities and give you a tool to fall back on in physically or mentally challenging situations, like being 30 meters below in low visibility water

Planet Nomadas Paradise,Flexiblity in Your Daily

Developed in India thousands of years ago, yoga has become an increasingly popular form of exercise around the world. Yoga is an ancient form of exercise that focuses on strength, flexibility and breathing to boost physical and mental wellbeing. The main components of yoga are postures (a series of movements designed to increase strength and flexibility) and breathing.

What Yoga benefits to your health? Here are the 10 of them:

  1. All-round fitness.You are truly healthy when you are not just physically fit but also mentally and emotionally balanced..
  2. Weight loss. With regular practice of yoga, we tend to become more sensitive to the kind of food our body asks for and when. This can also help keep a check on weight.
  3. Stress relief.A few minutes of yoga during the day can be a great way to get rid of stress that accumulates daily – in both the body and mind.
  4. Inner peace.We all love to visit peaceful, serene spots, rich in natural beauty. Little do we realize that peace can be found right within us and we can take a mini-vacation to experience this any time of the day!
  5. Improved immunity.Our system is a seamless blend of the body, mind and spirit. An irregularity in the body affects the mind and similarly unpleasantness or restlessness in the mind can manifest as an ailment in the body.
  6. Living with greater awareness.The mind is constantly involved in activity – swinging from the past to the future – but never staying in the present.
  7. Better relationships. A mind that is relaxed, happy and contented is better able to deal with sensitive relationship matters.
  8. Increased energy. A few minutes of yoga everyday provides the secret to feeling fresh and energetic even after a long day.
  9. Better flexibility & posture. Regular yoga practice stretches and tones the body muscles and also makes them strong. It also helps improve your body posture when you stand, sit, sleep or walk.
  10. Better intuition.Yoga and meditation have the power to improve your intuitive ability so that you effortlessly realize what needs to be done, when and how, to yield positive results
