Discover the best way to take care of body and soul while enjoying a stay in Tenerife. The definition of a relaxing holiday.
More and more people are becoming interested in the culture of yoga. It is a traditional spiritual, physical and mental discipline originating in India that is based on meditation and the liberation of body, mind and soul. Several researchers place the birth of this activity 35 centuries ago, an incredible generational experience that will help you combat anxiety and stress in this complicated world. Baobab Suites is the ideal hotel in Tenerife to work on your psychological and emotional well-being while enjoying your holidays.
Yoga has not stopped growing in the western world since 1980. The assimilation of this discipline as a physical exercise has led to an exponential increase in its followers all over the world. In Spain, a survey commissioned in 2014 by Aomm.tv found that yoga is practised – at least once a week – by 12.03% of Spaniards and 28.9% of the population has practised it at least once in their lives. Moreover, the potential is enormous. Another study carried out in the USA found that 44% of those who did not practise yoga said they were interested in practising it in the future.
Modalities of yoga
There are many varieties of yoga that are practised around the world, Raya Yoga (usually identified with Astanga Yoga), Gnana Yoga or Karma Yoga are the main ones according to purists and experts. But today we are going to talk about the main modality that you can find in our hotel.
Hatha Yoga is the most widespread modality worldwide and is easily recognisable by its asanas (body postures). The aim of these postures is to generate the ideal situation to achieve a state of balance that facilitates meditation. The asanas allow our body to enter a state of trance and we can let our mind flow. Another key point of this technique is breathing. Pranaiama is the set of breathing exercises that help to find a balance when meditating. The combination of posture and breathing will help you achieve your relaxation goals.
According to Wikipedia, Hatha Yoga can be defined as an elaborate system of psychophysiological techniques that includes:
- Postures (asanas)
- Psychic gestures (mudras)
- Energy keys (bandhas)
- Breathing exercises (pranayama)
- Internal purification exercises (shatkarmas)
