It is likely that before traveling, you may have questions about yoga on a cruise, the Amazon, and the services we offer. Therefore, in this note we will answer the most frequently asked, related questions:

What is yoga?

Yoga is a practice that connects the body, breath and mind through the execution of different body postures and breathing exercises. Also, having the opportunity to practice yoga in the middle of the Amazon is a wonderful experience because you will connect with nature.

What are the benefits of yoga?

The purpose of this ancient practice of Hindu origin is to improve general health, both internally and externally. Its main benefits internally are the creation of a more harmonious relationship with one’s own body, learning to control the mind and emotions. Externally, yoga provides greater physical flexibility, greater concentration and helps with the relief of muscle tension, as long as it is practiced under the guidance of experts.

The coaches that will guide these sessions, will be able to understand your special needs.

What parts of the body do you exercise when practicing yoga?

This depends on the postures that are practiced during the session. Yoga can work the muscles of the arms, legs, buttocks, and abdomen.

What should you wear to a yoga session?

Since it is an activity that requires a lot of movement, it is recommended to wear clothes that allow you to move, that are comfortable and in good condition.

It is advisable to wear loose or elastic clothing. The ideal materials for garments are cotton and lycra. Do not forget that the jungle has a tropical climate, hence the lightest and antiperspirant clothes are ideal.

What else should I bring to a yoga session?

For this outing, bring the articles you have. These are some of the recommended articles:

Yoga Mat 

It is the basic article for the practice of this discipline.Most yoga postures are practiced on a mat. 

Pay attention that it is non-slip to avoid slipping and having an accident. The thickness must be enough to insulate us from the ground. Do not choose excessively thick mats.

As for the size, it must have a length that allows you to lie stretched out without protruding from it.

Yoga blocks

These are small foam bricks that will help you get into some poses. They are very useful for beginners who do not yet have that much flexibility.

Yoga straps

Like the blocks, the straps make it easier to perform certain movements and stretches. In addition, they also collaborate in maintaining a posture for longer.

How will your body change with the practice of yoga?

The practice of this activity reinforces your vitality, since it helps with the solution of health problems related to low back pain, arthritis, as well as it can help reduce risk factors for chronic diseases, such as heart disease and high blood pressure. 

On the other hand, practicing this discipline of Hindu origin will improve your physical condition, an excellent benefit that helps you feel comfortable with yourself.

Finally, it will make you a person with better resources to deal with stressful situations, which will help you in personal and work aspects.

Another discipline, which will be practiced in this exceptional outing in November 2023, is sound healing. Learn more about it below:

What is sound healing?

Sound healing or sonotherapy is a technique that is based on the concept of resonance, which refers to the vibrational frequency of objects. It consists of using sounds to calibrate the vibrational frequencies of those who practice it. Can you imagine combining this discipline with the sounds of the jungle?

What are the benefits of sound healing?

This technique helps to release blocks, silence unproductive thoughts  and negative emotions that make it difficult to continue with daily tasks.

Sound Healing allows us to be with ourselves, identify the negative thoughts that arise in our minds and calm them down.

Having the opportunity to practice this technique in a natural environment will help you reach total calmness and harmony with your inner self.

If you feel drawn to the benefits of these activities, our Yoga and Wellness Cruise is the perfect opportunity for you.
