5 REASONS YOU SHOULD KEEP PRACTICING YOGA EVEN DURING THE SUMMER:
1) SANITY
The sun, warm weather & long nights call us all out in the world. We tend to stay up later, sleep less and spend more time recreating, which is exactly what we should be doing during the longer day light hours.
However, we still need to be practicing self-care to ensure that we are staying in balance. We want to maintain our energy throughout the summer months, not end up feeling worn out and burnt out – and potentially also burnt – by July.

2) INJURY PREVENTION
All of the outdoor playing we do creates tension in our bodies. This tension needs to be moved out of our bodies so that we can stay nimble and healthy. A regular yoga practice can help with this.
The strength that you have combined with the flexibility that yoga promotes creates mobility. This means, that you can be ready for spills, rapid movements as needed on the trails or water ways without having this unexpected movements lead to injury.
Regular yoga practice will help keep you healthy through out the summer and beyond!

3) REST
It’s so important to rest even during this summer months. We are so used to doing and going endlessly, especially in the summer.
Coming to a Yin or Restorative class can help you rest and relax, this is so important to keeping yourself healthy, physically, mentally and emotionally.

4) VARIETY
We all love certain sports more than others, and there is nothing wrong with that. However, doing the same movements over and over again, just like sitting at a desk can create repetitive patterns in our body. A regular yoga practice can help to combat this, creating different movement patterns. It’s nice to mix it up every once and a while!

5) COMMUNITY
This one may be cheesy, but true.
A lot of the activities we do are solo activities and yoga can be a great way to connect to community, whether you are into talking to people before or after class. Or whether you prefer to come in and speak to no one, it’s great way to be with a group of like minded people.
And if you really don’t want to be inside, Shala is offering an Outdoor Summer Yoga Series at Nootka & Sea at the Squamish Town Hub.

Release: this pose can help bring about a deep state of rest which can help to release stress and muscular tension

Rejuvenate: after an energetic practice it can help ‘reset’ the body temperature, calm the central nervous system and bring the breath back to normal.

Integrate: it gives you a chance to absorb the benefits of the practice, enabling you to knit together the body, mind and breath.

La posture du savasana permet donne le temps au corps de relâcher le stress et la tension musculaire. Elle nous aide également à éliminer les toxines dans le sang pendant l’effort soutenue lors des postures plus actives. Ce temps permet de calmer le système nerveux central ainsi que d’absorber et intégrer les bienfaits des postures travaillées.

Savasana est un état d’haromonie et detente physique et mentale.

The winter months are a great time to declutter your living space.  Have you noticed when you cleanse your home, you cleanse your mind?  Less stuff to think about, less mess, and things to maintain. When we think about 'clutter' and how it appears in our life, what comes up for you? Mental clutter is something that we all experience. Noticing what takes your energy and distracts you can be a powerful tool, setting things 'aside' or letting them 'go' to conserve energy is what makes us feel light. Yoga invites us to concentrate on breath and movement, which often enables us to declutter and focus...Just another reason to LOVE your yoga practice!

What Client's Say

Anonymous

I started going to Pura Vida when I was experiencing anxiety from stress and having regular panic attacks. Having taken medication for anxiety in the past I wanted to explore other methods before having to take medication again. I had taken yoga classes at a local gym in the past and decided to give it another try. Since joining I've been attending classes regularly, I fell In love with hot yoga! my panic attacks and anxiety have subsided and when I have a stressful day at work I make it a point to attend a class, when I wake up feeling anxious I make it a priority to go in for a class and take care of myself. I love the sense of community at Pura Vida! Thank you so much to all the amazing teachers who are there for us every day guiding us through our practice as we all deal with our own struggles, such a therapeutic environment.
