Thousands of people around the world seek a place to relax not only their bodies, but also their mind and spirit. In response to this, many of the luxury hotels in Mexico have begun to offer yoga and meditation classes. Puerto Vallarta will not be left behind.
Yoga originally emerged as a discipline practiced by the mystics and sages of India almost 2,000 years ago. It was used as a method of contemplation and spiritual transformation. The practice spread throughout most of the continent, and is now a fundamental part of several Asian cultures.
The word yoga can be translated as "union", as the ultimate goal is achieving the perfect balance of mind, body, and spirit. There are many styles of yoga to choose from, ensuring that people of all ages and skill levels can participate. The style that is best known is Hatha Yoga, which focuses on posture and breathing exercises.
When meditating you must clear your mind of negative thoughts, as they can prevent you from experiencing complete relaxation. With peace of mind we can appreciate the little things that we tend to overlook: the beauty of a silent moment, the caress of a cool breeze across your face, and the constant murmur of the waves. With yoga, you can see yourself slowly moving forward on a path of spiritual growth, a development that improves your health as well as your perception of the world.
Awareness of the benefits of yoga and meditation has spread not only to the tourism industry, but also into the business sector. Several well known companies have acknowledged the positive results of employees practicing simple exercises during working hours. There is no question that a healthy person who is full of positive energy will be more productive in their job.
Many of the hotels in Puerto Vallarta, Nuevo Vallarta and Riviera Nayarit list yoga and meditation classes among their services. Hotels like the Villa Premier Hotel and Spa, Taheima Wellness Resort and Spa, and Four Seasons Resort Punta Mita have joined with the many other hotels now offering this luxurious service.
Practicing yoga and meditation by the sea provides unparalleled relaxation, as it puts you in direct contact with nature and allows you to synchronize your breathing with the rhythm of the ocean waves. Furthermore, the energy of the sea is highly beneficial for the human body, making the beach an ideal place to practice yoga. Don't miss out on the opportunity to experience a truly rejuvenating vacation at the beautiful hotels of Puerto Vallarta!
