1. Stay Hydrated
For a safe and successful yoga session, don’t forget to bring on water. Bring a water bottle with you so you can refill your body with water.
2. Find Comfortable Surface
Aside from being uncomfortable for your feet, the surface is also likely to irritate your skin. In any case, do use a yoga mat to protect your joints and skin
3. Find A Flat Spot
This includes sand surface areas as well spots in the park where the ground may be uneven, or at an incline. You don’t want such surfaces to interfere with your balance and to injury yourself.
4. Be Careful In The Sand
You see it everywhere: Images of yogis achieving utter zen in the face of the horizon, stretched out beyond the ocean. But you’d like to be very careful about doing yoga in the sand because of its uneven surface, where you risk twisting your joints among other injuries.
We’d recommend you to use a mat, but even then, place it where the sand is densely packed and as least likely to shift as possible.
5. Watch Out For Bugs
No, you don’t want to get in their way, lest you don’t mind them tracing your limbs as part of your zen-achieving ritual. This is especially important when doing yoga on the grass.
You may also want to look for ticks, sticks, rocks, poisonous plants, and the homes of other multi-legged crawlies before laying down your mat. Oh, and if you know there might be mosquito, bring some repellent.
6. Sun Protection Care
Put on some skin protection 30 minutes before heading for the outdoors with your mat, but don’t forget to wash your hands dry so you don’t slip on your mat.
As you see, it all comes down to bringing your mat, watching where you put it, using sun screen and drinking enough. Be wise and don’t let the easily avoidably troubles spoil your perfect, summery, outdoorsy yoga session.
