It’s that light-bulb moment when you discover something amazing. It’s when you say to yourself, “Yes, I want to do that!”

If you’re looking for new ways on how to do yoga, then look no further because you’ve found it.

Here are unique approaches to doing the beautiful art and exercise that many like you have grown to love with all the yoga health benefits.

Chroma Yoga

Imagine doing yoga in a room lit by colored lights with calming music playing in the background and soothing scents wafting in the air around you. This is what Chroma yoga feels like.

Chroma yoga uses light to trigger a neurological response from your body. Blue light tells the brain to stop producing melatonin and increase production of stress hormones to wake you up. Red light boosts melatonin levels and dramatically improves quality of sleep.

The ultimate aim is to help regulate your sleep patterns to reduce stress levels and increase energy levels. It’s a win-win!

Stand-up Paddle Yoga

Ever done stand-up paddleboarding? If yes, then you know it’s an adventure and a great workout for your legs, shoulders, and core. Now add yoga poses to it and you’ve got an awesome fun-and-fitness formula.

Stand-up paddle yoga takes your balance and concentration to the next level. Be prepared to get wet and crack a few laughs while you’re at it.

Once you’ve gotten the hang of it, you’ll find this serene commune with nature a therapeutic escape from the hustle and bustle of city life.

If you haven’t done stand-up paddleboarding yet, then you can light two fires with one match! Start stand-up paddle yoga near you by finding the most accessible body of water.

Chair Yoga

Busy all day every day? Squeeze in a short yoga sessions in the comfort of a chair (even at work!) Yes, you read that right. You can do effective yoga poses while sitting down.

Chair yoga emphasizes movement and presence being in a relatively confined space. It’s not about technique or physical strength. It focuses more on inner strength and mindfulness of your surroundings.

Doing yoga while sitting in a chair will allow you to be flow with your breath and vibrations. This should do wonders for your mood and overall well-being whether you’re at work or at home.

People look for retreats for themselves, in the country, by the coast, or in the hills… There is nowhere that a person can find a more peaceful and trouble-free retreat than in his own mind… So constantly give yourself this retreat, and renew yourself. — MARCUS AURELIUS
