Yoga is a great way to enhance physical strength while releasing stress, making it the ultimate full body workout. The Yhi Spa at Paradisus Resorts in the Dominican Republic encourages guests to treat themselves to beauty and spa treatments as well as beachfront yoga classes that provide physical and mental strength and relaxation.
An invigorating workout that can help restore, improve and maintain physical health, yoga also increases flexibility and muscle tone. Ongoing practice of yoga helps individuals release stress and tension while strengthening the body. The practice of yoga consists of a collection of strengthening and toning positions that challenges the body both physically and mentally. The beauty of the workout is that it allows the individual to practice at their own strength level, offering positions of varying degrees of difficulty for a more challenging experience.
Yhi Spa offers guests the opportunity to try various yoga classes that meet their level of comfort and personal need. The most popular class, Yoga Move Basic, is great for beginners who want to give yoga a try for the first time. This class focuses on the foundations of yoga through the instruction of basic stretches and positions. We also offer Prana Yoga recommended for guests with respiratory health concerns as it practices breath control and regulation.
For those looking for more of a challenge the Yhi Spa recommends Power Yoga challenging balance and energy, or Hatha Yoga, which combines strengthening positions with meditation for the more flexible! Meditation and massage classes are also recommended for guests and available every Sunday.
Beachfront classes are offered in the morning by request, while all other classes are available in the gym. Guests can enjoy classes for $25 for adults and $30 for kids. Yoga is great for beginners to learn something new on vacation, or for the more experienced yoga practitioner to grow their practice and enjoy this great workout with a beachfront view!
