HEALTH, WELLNESS & YOGA

At Kamalaya Wellness Sanctuary & Holistic Spa on the island of Koh Samui in Thailand you can dramatically improve your health and wellness through the practice of yoga, whether you’re just starting out your yoga practice or you’re a seasoned yogi or yogini looking to deepen your existing practice. So what can you expect? Below are just a few of the many benefits pointed out by yoga experts that the practice brings to your personal health and wellness:

Flexibility – This is an obvious one, but eventually even those who couldn’t touch their toes when they started will be able to achieve seemingly impossible poses.

Strength – Muscles that are strong not only look good, but protect us from conditions including arthritis and back pain, and help prevent falls in elderly people. And when you build strength through yoga, you balance it with flexibility.

Posture – When the head is balanced directly over an erect spine, it takes much less work for your neck and back muscles to support it. Working at a computer, for example, moves it several inches forward, straining those muscles. Yoga helps you put everything back where it’s supposed to be, with the added benefit of a graceful stance.

Healthy Joints – Each time you practice yoga, you take your joints through their full range of motion. This can help prevent degenerative arthritis or mitigate disability by “squeezing and soaking” areas of cartilage that normally aren’t used. Joint cartilage is like a sponge; it receives fresh nutrients only when its fluid is squeezed out and a new supply can be soaked up. Without proper sustenance, neglected areas of cartilage can eventually wear out, exposing the underlying bone like worn-out brake pads.

Bone Integrity – Weight-bearing exercise strengthens bones and helps ward off osteoporosis. Many postures in yoga require that you lift your own weight.

Circulation – Yoga gets your blood flowing. More specifically, the relaxation exercises you learn in yoga can help your circulation, especially in your hands and feet. Yoga also gets more oxygen to your cells, which function better as a result. Yoga also boosts levels of hemoglobin and red blood cells, which carry oxygen to the tissues. As mentioned, these are only a few of the uncounted benefits of yoga to overall health and wellness. Come learn about these and more with a yoga program at Kamalaya.
