Yoga & Detox in Thailand

Enjoy Your Detox Retreat With Warm Weather and Cool Sea Air

Nowadays most of us have inadvertently ended up with hectic lifestyles that are dictated by work and a busy schedule. We move from place to place with our heads down and let life pass us by without taking in the natural beauty that can be found all around us. Winters in particular can be tough and when the weather is wet and cold it can be hard to keep a positive frame of mind, and it is certainly difficult to stay focused on a healthy lifestyle of yoga, meditation and Detox. This is one of the reasons that Thailand makes such an ideal location for a Detox retreat.

When you arrive in Thailand you wont be able to help but have a smile on your face as you step out of the Airport and feel the warm air melt your chilled body. Your trip to the Island on a boat with the cool air in your hair will leave you feeling fresh and invigorated ready for your up-coming retreat and push for a healthier body and mind. Feel the warmth of the sun on our skin and after a gruelling yoga session go for a refreshing dip in the ocean. You certainly wont regret heading to Thailand to take part in the perfect Detox retreat.

Yoga Styles

There are several styles of yoga taught today. For the most part, they use many of the same poses, but each has a different focus. Some styles of yoga include:

• Hatha is a very general term and comprises many physical varieties of yoga. If a class uses the term Hatha, it will likely be gentle, slow-paced and offer a good foundation of basic poses.
• Vinyasa is another general term that refers to movement coordinated with the breath. Vinyasa yoga is more dynamic than Hatha yoga and centers on a series of poses known as Sun Salutations. Vinyasa may also be called Flow, referring to the constant movement from one pose to the next.
• Ashtanga means “eight-limbed” in Sanskrit and is a very intense style of yoga. Ashtanga uses a series of poses, always in the same sequence and emphasizes daily practice. A subset of Ashtanga yoga is known as Power Yoga, which keeps the flowing style of Ashtanga without necessarily observing the strict sequence of poses.
• Iyengar, based on the teachings of B.K.S. Iyengar, focuses on holding poses longer instead of constant movement. Iyengar promotes the use of props such as blocks to help align the body.
• Kundalini, like Vinyasa, emphasizes coordinating movements with breath. Where Kundalini differs is in its goal of freeing energy from the base of the spine and allowing it flow upwards. Kundalini Kundalini exercises are known as kriyas.
• Bikram, also known as hot yoga, is practiced in a room heated to between 95 and 100 degrees. The goal is to loosen tight muscles and to encourage sweating, which is believed to be purifying. Bikram was originally taught using 26 poses, but not all classes adhere to these poses.

Common injuries

While yoga is generally considered safe for most people, practitioners can and do occasionally suffer injuries. Many of these injuries are related to excessive strain on the spine, including thoracic outlet syndrome, degenerative arthritis, spinal stenosis, and “yoga foot drop”, an abnormal gait caused by stress on the common fibular nerve, torn muscles, knee injuries, and even retinal tears and vertebral artery dissection. The best way to avoid injury is to listen to your body. If you feel pain beyond a gentle stretch, stop, don’t perform poses that are beyond your capabilities and resist the urge to compete against others that you study with.
