Outdoor yoga: How to enjoy an al fresco practice

Outdoor yoga: How to enjoy an al fresco practice

I've found that it's easier for me to get footholds (and enjoy the totally different experience of digging my hands and feet into the sand for balance) if I do yoga on a sandy beach sans mat. I actually prefer practicing without a mat on lawns and grass too; just be sure to wear dark clothes so you don't get grass stains on your clothes. If I am on a earthen floor, it's great to have a mat to keep clean and protect your knees and feet from small pebbles or stones. But more often than not, when I practice outside, I don't use a mat at all. However, it's always a good idea to bring one, just in case; you can always use it as a pillow in savasana, and some sandy beaches are quite grainy, or might be wetter than you are comfortable with, in which case you can always roll out your mat.
