Celebrating International Day of Yoga (every June 21), Reflections Holiday Parks is encouraging holiday makers to focus on their health and wellbeing while getting back to nature – and yoga is a great way to do it.
Reflections Holiday Parks CEO, Nick Baker said holiday yoga was a popular activity with guests often enjoying a meditative sunrise or sunset stretch in the relaxed coastal and country surroundings Reflections is well known for.
“Guests who holiday at Reflections Holiday Parks want that deeper connection with nature and the mind-body health benefits of an outdoor-based holiday with us are incredible,” he said.
“I love the outdoors and stepping away from technology to breathe in the air and enjoy the scenery, be it through meditation and yoga stretches or while simply enjoying a cuppa, has a real restorative effect.
“The Winter sunshine is a great mood lifter and right now many of our coastal park guests are spotting whales as they roll out their towels or mats and take in their surroundings while saluting the sun.”
Reflections Seal Rocks Manager, Katie Toney said guests practiced yoga regularly at the park.
“It is very informal, and people love our beachfront setting with the sounds of the waves rolling in,” Katie said.
“Yoga is popular all through the year here at Seal Rocks and we often run classes across the school holidays giving everyone a chance to learn.
“A holiday with Reflections means all forms of outdoor adventures from lazy walks along the beach, discovering new wildlife and outdoor activities which replenish the soul and spirit like a hike through the bush or yoga on the headland.”
International Yoga Day is celebrated on the 21st of June every year with people gathering, often in parks and scenic outdoor settings, to enjoy the positive effects meditation, yoga and connections to nature have on the mind, body and spirit.
