During our stay in Punta Cana I wanted to take full advantage of the free options available on the resort. We stayed at Barceló Bavaro Beach – Adults only resort (all-Inclusive). Each day the resort offered free activities like Salsa lessons and Zumba. I was excited, to learn the resort offered Yoga on the beach. In my mind, Yoga is the perfect way to start the day.
The experience was wonderful! The resort provided the yoga mats and the country provided the scenery. It was great, we picked a quiet spot on the beach with a great view of the ocean. The sound of the waves were very relaxing, as we stretched out our limbs. The instructor was a beautiful Dominican woman. Her flexibility was remarkable. I was enthralled at the fact I was able to emulate her methods. I love yoga. It creates a peaceful environment. With every pose I closed my eyes and allowed my mind to be free. I focused 100% on my surroundings, and for that moment I let all my worries go.
Yoga is great for the body and mind. The older I get the more fascinated I am with living a healthier lifestyle. I want to be that 60yr old women still running marathons in a fresh pair of new balances. I understand in order to accomplish such goals, I must take care of my body. I was first introduce to Yoga through P90X Extreme Home Fitness. Believe it or not, it was the hardest routine out of the 12 disk package. Twisting & turning your body, this way and that way is not as easy as it appears. Just as with anything else, the more you practice the better you’ll get. I haven’t master Yoga completely yet, I’m still finding my way. I am currently in the process of getting my body in great shape, and I plan to add Yoga to my morning routine.
