Practicing yoga outdoors can be a great way to decompress, especially when the weather is fine and one is wearing loose-fitting clothes made with natural fibers. That said, what do you do if it is sunny outside and you have your yoga outfit on but you just happen to live in a busy city center?
The Ritz Carlton-Chicago is offering a solution, now that spring has given way to summer. The hotel will offer Sunrise Yoga on the Sun Deck, a yoga class offered every Saturday for patrons, according to Breaking Travel News.
The sessions will start at 7:00 A.M., allowing guests to breathe deeply, stretch, meditate and relax amid the striking skyline of downtown Chicago. The news source reported that yoga practitioners will get a breathtaking view of the John Hancock Center and Lake Michigan.
Studies have shown that outdoor yoga may be of benefit to people of all ages, from toddlers to elderly adults.
For instance, an article in Camping Magazine found that outdoor programs that involved walking, camping, yoga or social groups helped frail seniors improve their quality of life.
