Yoga vacations in Santa Teresa Costa Rica
The image that comes to mind when you think of yoga is probably a 20-something petite young woman who can do the splits in the air while lying on her back. Despite what you may think, however, that stereotype is no longer the norm. Yoga classes and yoga retreats are filling up with seniors, corporate executives, surfers and professional athletes … and they are both men and women.
“More and more American seniors are taking up yoga than ever before” to help ease the ageing process, notes the Yoga Journal. “Yoga Journal's Yoga in America study found that of the 15.8 million Americans who practice yoga, 2.9 million are 55 or older.”
“If you assume that sun salutations and tree-poses are the exclusive domain of yoga-loving women (and granola-crunchy male instructors) you might be surprised to learn that some pro football teams (i.e. the New York Giants and Philadelphia Eagles) are incorporating the moves into their traditionally rigorous training regimens,” reports Men’s Fitness and Stack.com.
Turn yoga into a vacation. Yoga retreats or yoga vacations are for everyone – beginners, advanced, men, women and any age group. They keep you fit and give you restorative relaxation while on holiday.
