Candlelight Yoga Classes Relax and Refresh
Imagine the soft glow of candles filling the room while you move fluidly through various asanas (poses). The long holds and gentle stretches help you to unwind and slow down from the stresses of the day. The peacefulness that you feel upon finishing a candlelight yoga class can last all night, assisting in a good night’s rest.
Candlelight yoga incorporates poses that are meant to relax you and release tension from chronic stress and fatigue that can build up throughout the day. Several styles are used such as yin yoga and restorative yoga, both of which include poses that promote circulation in tight areas such as the thighs and hips. The focused breathing and meditation techniques also encourage the body and mind to wind down from the day. Due to the stretching and long holds, props are recommended to those who need the extra support. Most yoga studios will have props that you can use, but if you need them on a regular basis it is best to purchase your own.
If you are looking for a soothing exercise that can balance out your more intense yoga or workout routines, candlelight yoga is for you. Candles create a calming effect and help you focus during meditation. They are soothing to the soul and evoke a tranquil environment conducive to relaxation. The purpose of incorporating the candles into candlelight yoga is to bring this peacefulness into the yoga studio so that you can release the tension of the days.
