Are you a yoga enthusiast? Imagine taking your favorite yoga moves to a new level — yoga in the hot tub. A hot tub offers many benefits, as does yoga. Putting the two together can only add to their enjoyment. At Goodall Pools & Spas, we know that backyard bliss begins with a spa. Our company began almost 60 years ago, and we’ve been carrying high quality spas since the mid-90s. We can help you find the perfect spa to use for yoga while you enjoy hydrotherapy. Here is why & how to do yoga in your hot tub.
Purpose for Combining Yoga and Hot Tub Time
First, let’s discuss the why of this topic. The health benefits of a hot tub and health benefits of yoga actually overlap. A hot tub is known to help with stress relief, sleep assistance, soothing sore muscles and joints, as well as other things. Yoga also offers these benefits and more — increasing focus, improving balance, and even boosting self confidence to name a few.
When you do yoga in your spa, you are allowing yourself the opportunity to bask in the all-around benefits. Your mind, soul, and body are all getting some much-needed attention this way. You will love the results of doing yoga this way.
Plan for Consolidating Yoga and Hot Tub Time
Next, we’re ready to look at how to do yoga in a bubbling spa. Yoga is designed to help you balance your body and your mind simultaneously. Balancing in warm, swirling water makes this very easy as well as enjoyable.
There are all kinds of yoga poses that you can try out in your hot tub. You will learn which ones are your favorite as you attempt various positions. Start by sitting in your favorite hot tub seat and taking several deep, calming breaths to prepare your mind.
Continue by stretching to prepare your body for more exertion. This method of stretching gives you a greater range of motion thanks to the buoyancy the water affords. Stretching and balancing underwater are easier because your body is only supporting about a fifth of its actual weight.
From there, the possibilities are endless. Whether you’re just beginning to enjoy yoga or you’ve done yoga for years, enjoy the yoga poses that you know and love. You can also comfortably try new poses in the hot tub because of the water’s assistance in the process.
