Tips for Outdoor Yoga

Choose a Style of Yoga Depending on the Weather

If it’s hot outside, you can do exercises from hatha yoga and Iyengar yoga. These styles have many breathing exercises, meditations, and asanas in which the body is in a certain posture for several minutes, so you don’t get high blood pressure. In classes that take place at a relaxed rhythm, it is easier to monitor your well-being and prevent overheating of the body.


Active, dynamic styles such as Ashtanga Vinyasa yoga are more suitable for cooler weather. It consists of cyclical sets of exercises that are based on the tension of individual muscles and concentration. Circulation is increased during the class, so you won’t get cold.

Take a Thick Yoga Mat and Plaid

For nature classes, you need a sturdy and thick yoga mat. The optimal thickness is 4 – 5 mm, the length is 5 – 10 cm more than your height. Longer and lighter mats are more comfortable and easier to carry.


Choose models of dense rubber with a capron mesh inside. The surface should provide a good grip on the skin and not slip. Mats made of foam rubber or natural rubber wear out quickly and are not very hygienic. Dark mats are less likely to get dirty. But if you chose a light-colored mat, and after the first session the mat got dirty, you can wipe it with a sponge or rinse it in the washing machine without using detergents.


If you are a beginner yogi, a plaid or blanket comes in handy. Rolled plaid can be placed under your back or knees, sat on it, or covered the mat for better insulation. During static exercises or relaxation, it can get cold, in which case a blanket will save the situation.

Put a Brick and a Belt in the Bag

Yogis use a brick to make it easier to perform difficult poses. It is placed under the hands or buttocks while practicing standing or sitting asanas.


You can do without a brick, but if you want to make the exercise more comfortable and safe, it’s better to get a sturdy and lightweight yoga block made of foam plastic.


The belt is another accessory to simplify difficult poses, for example, it’s easier to reach your toes with it. Soft and strong cotton belt serves as an extension of the hand and helps avoid slouching your back, which is important for safe practice.

  1. The word yoga is derived from the Sanskrit root yuj, meaning “to YOKE,”

    Yoga postures (asanas) were never intended to exercise and tone the body – such physical results are merely a BYPRODUCT of this Hindu (demonic) practice.

    Instead the use of yoga postures is twofold

    1). To bodily honour Hindu )pagan) gods, for example Virabhadra and Vasistha, and nature elements, e.g. the sun and moon.

    2). To cultivate discipline over the body and mind with the ultimate aim of reaching “higher consciousness/estatic states whilst engaged in the practise of meditation.

    Yoga was and always will be a RELIGIOUS PRACTICE.

    Any spiritual path other than that of the Lord Jesus is nothing more than a deceptive con of Satan and will lead its followers into hell.

    “Have no fellowship with the unfruitful works of darkness, but rather expose them” Ephesians 5 v11
