Viewpoint at Puerto Angel is the perfect place to stay and perform your yoga practice. Imagine sitting atop a 40-metre rock peninsula overlooking the ocean as you listen to the waves crash in. You’ll find all the comfort, privacy, and luxury you need at Viewpoint.
Location, scenery and temperature are key to having a successful practice and for some the most sacred part. Most yoga practitioners agree that the best settings for practice include:
Heat: Puerto Angel and the Oaxacan coastline have an average year round temperature of 28 degrees. This consistent heat provides the perfect temperature to relax your muscle, provide for greater range of movement and flexibility and detoxify and eliminate the toxins in your body.
Scenery: Imagine sitting a top a 50-metre rock peninsula overlooking the ocean while you practice. There are also plenty of open spaces so you can get the most out of your postures.
Location: Practice pranayama as you breathe in the fresh ocean air. Ocean air is charged with healthy negative ions that accelerate our ability to absorb oxygen. Negative ions also balance levels of serotonin, a body chemical linked with mood and stress. You will have minimal distractions and privacy.
Practicing yoga near the ocean and in an environment like Viewpoint at Puerto Angel is both relaxing and healing. And if you are in the mood for a group setting, there are also a few nearby studios that you can visit.
