Increased Absorption of Oxygen

We are more accustomed to taking shallow rapid breaths to meet our oxygen requirements. However, with the regular practice of pranayama more of our lungs are used, leading to more oxygen entering our bloodstream thus improving our overall health. Many a Maldives wellness resort including the likes of Anantara Dhigu Maldives Resort has programmes that one can take up to learn the art.

Control Emotions

The more disturbances you have in your emotional stability, the more rapid our breathing gets. Therefore, by controlling our breathing we have control over our negative emotions such as anger and restlessness.

Improve Concentration and Memory

Regular practice of pranayama will help improve your concentration, recent, remote memory and strengthen your willpower. One can also feel a deep sense of peace and rejuvenation as well.

Better Physical Fitness

By engaging in this practice, our physical fitness has the chance to increase greatly! It makes our body strong, lean and healthy. It also has the capacity to balance your digestive system and appetite.

Yoga and Its Miraculous Benefits – Wellness through Yoga

What really is the practice we call ‘yoga’ all about? It is about bringing together the body, mind and spirit with meditation, breathing techniques and various physical poses. Yoga awakens your ability to experience the entire universe as a part of yourself and be content with who you are.

External benefits

The core of the body is what makes you stronger and increases the immunity of the body. Regular yoga practice makes the core stronger. Yoga also improves the posture and strength of the body on the whole. For those who are figure conscious, yoga helps keep the perfect body weight and also helps in toning the muscles.

Emotional benefits

One of the main benefits of yoga it that it eliminates stress and leaves you feeling good. It is one of the most effective ways to battle depression too. The synchronization of body and mind will bring a certain inner peacefulness to the mind which will in turn help in dealing with anxiety.

Yoga as an exercise

Yoga, unlike other exercises, reduce the blood pressure and uses up lesser oxygen. Also, yoga makes you focus on each and every movement making you less prone to injury and resulting in a healthy workout that will leave you feeling great.

Don’t forget

The benefits of yoga are fully reaped only if it can be practised each day perhaps even on your vacation in the Maldives. A wellness hotel is easy to find in the Maldives, one such example would be Anantara Veli Maldives Resort where the yoga experience is even more wonderful as it is practised by the beach.
