Yoga in Kitesurfinglanka
Yoga means Union. The union with your body and soul which we can achieve through meditation, breathing and practicing asana (body postures). Yoga is more than a form of sport.
It’s a choice of thinking, it’s a life style. With the yoga techniques we can unit our mind body and spirit. Yoga allows us to experience a deep emotional awareness and meet our true nature that it is basically good, positive and relaxed.
After you have experienced a few yoga lessons on our magical wooden outdoor platform you may even want to incorporate a yoga practice into you daily life.
Yoga helps prevent injuries and shortens the recovering time between the KITE sessions.
This type of yoga can be practiced by all levels from beginner to experienced ones.
A session of yoga class generally consists a number of long stretches that work mainly the lower body (hips, pelvises, lower back, knees); these stretches are associated with a combination of slow deep breathing.
We can participate in 2daily yoga sessions each morning and afternoon:
***YOGA BEFORE: 12.00 am
In the morning it is important to warm up muscles and ligaments to strengthen and stretch them for kitesurfing. Yoga helps to start the day fit and fully motivated.
*** YOGA AFTER: 18.00 pm
Repair you body after a long day, yoga postures and relaxation help to relax you body and mind. The muscles and ligaments are stretched again in order to start the recovery process actively and accelerate it. Rejuvenate and recharge your energy to be ready for the next day.
About your yoga trainer, Margriet Hospers;
Margriet (Marge) started her journey on the path of yoga 10 years ago in India, after a car accident left her with neck and brain damage. Through the deep conviction that our healing powers are locked within ourselves, she started to guide her body and mind back to balance. Her motivation to share yoga is to align individual balance with the earths well-being. This also motivates her work as sustainability coordinator for Kite Surfing Lanka, where her and her partner guide the camp to be an even more functional part of our eco system. She joined KSL two months ago at the time of writing and shares with us Hatha, Yin, Kundalini and Yoga Therapy, with a focus on alignment for an open posture and healthy breathing.
