For expert yoga lovers or restless beginners in this article today we are going to propose a plan that you will not be able to miss. Because, do you think of something better than watching the sunset while practicing yoga in a beautiful beach of Formentera?

Yoga postures to do in the sand

The warrior I. As an initial posture and as a warm up we propose a very simple and perfect asana to start. Place your feet together, then take a step back while flexing the opposite knee, at the same time put your hands together and raise them to the sky.

Downward Facing Dog. This is a posture sitting on your heels and little by little, we begin to “walk” with our hands until our body is in the shape of an isosceles triangle.

The boat. In this position, we will put our back and stomach muscles into operation to maintain balance. So, sitting with your legs stretched, lean back while stretching your arms and legs equally.

Side plank. It is a position in which we work the muscles of the abdomen, legs and back, which will help us to release the accumulated tensions in this area. To perform this position it will be necessary to align your body in a lateral position with your legs together and then raise your arm up until the two arms form a straight line.

Lotus flower. This position will be the ideal for you to finish your yoga session on the beach, take the opportunity to take deep breaths and leave your mind blank to find total calm. To perform this asana, you must sit on the floor with your legs crossed, your left foot on your right thigh and your hands on your knees.

These are some of the yoga postures, we recommend from our Hotel formentera Playa to practice in your days on the island.
