What if you could enhance your experience at every yoga class and build a routine that takes you deeper into a meditative state than ever before?
Millions of people around the world have embraced yoga as a method for finding unity between the body, mind and spirit. Both intense and light yoga routines offer immense benefits to your physical body — stretching and strengthening muscles — as well as your mind. For many yogis, entering a deep state of mediation is the ultimate goal and is often introduced as part of the cool-down period of a yoga class.
For some people, quieting down your brain can simply feel like an impossibility-especially for beginners. Floating takes the brain from its higher beta state into an alpha state, where the brain releases theta waves and the mind becomes quiet. Achieving theta state through meditation alone can take months or years, but it can take as little as 20 minutes in a float room.
Yoga also helps you release toxins from tight muscles, and when combining yoga with floatation therapy, your blood flow to the soft tissues increases-helping to remove those toxins and get them out of your circulatory system. This allows your body to feel better and more energized, as the waste products your tense body has built up disappear.
Flotation therapy can benefit your yoga practice by helping to relax muscles between yoga classes/sessions, making you more flexible and advancing your practice.
Yoga and floating go-hand-in-hand. In both you work towards creating balance between your body and mind, finding greater mental focus and deep physical relaxation. Creating a more balanced life.
