When it comes to exercising your body and living a healthy lifestyle it is important to understand how it is affecting our bodies. When we start doing cardio and building muscle strength we immediately feel the difference. Here are some of the things that happen to your body when you start your daily regimen.
- Improve oxygen flow to the brain
- Activates your brain
- Heart rate and blood pressure lowers
- Decrease risk of disease
- Gain more energy
After one day your brain triggers a flight or fight response. “Your blood flow to your brain increases, making you more alert, more aware and more awake,” Professor Newton says. Furthermore, “That lovely hormone epinephrine is released, which makes you more motivated, it blocks pain and makes you smarter immediately.” He also talks about your body going into repair mode because it is not used to working those muscles.
The first day you work out, you want to listen to your body and not push yourself. The reason is that you do not want to be discouraged and feel you can’t do it when you can. After the first day, your body will build tolerance so each session you can push a little harder.
After one week your cells start to rejuvenate and you feel more energy. Taking care of your cells is like drinking the fountain of youth! The more you stay in a constant routine the more you will completely transform your overall health.
After one month you will notice physical changes in your muscles. Your metabolism will start to pick up and as you sleep you will burn more energy. Life will become easier because you are stronger, therefore, you can do more for yourself. This is what we call superhero training.
After six months you will have so much self-confidence because you will ultimately feel and see the difference. Believe it or not, when you have the self-discipline you create self-love, which will make your heart literally grow bigger. When you work out for at least half a year, you reduce the risk of heart attack. Your resting heart rate will be lowered, and your heart will be able to pump your blood more strongly.
After one year your bone density will increase which means your risk of fracture is minimum! Your self-esteem will rise while anxiety disappears. Oh, and say hello to good mental health. Woo-hoo!
Exercising is the best type of habit to get into. Replace the bad ones with good ones! It all starts with you and a Cal Spas Fitness Swim Spa!
When you first step into your Cal Spa Hot Tub you will instantly feel the warmth on your toes and a warm sensation run through your body. When you finally sit in the spa you have two choices: sit and relax or move around a little bit. When you move around, finding a nice yoga routine is worth the effort. Here is a yoga routine made just for the Cal Spas Family!
First, we shall begin with a meditation that will last between 5-10 minutes (whatever you feel most comfortable with) Close your eyes and any thoughts that come through your head, let them come, and let them go. If you have trouble focusing you can count from 100-1 and let your thoughts settle.
Extra Chakra Meditation Practice: Once you feel that your mind has relaxed and thoughts have slowed down, imagine a ball of light on top of your head, and then imagine the ball slowly falling behind your neck, down to your back and coming up from underneath you, to in front of you, working its way in front of your stomach, to your chest, to your heart, to your throat, to your third eye, and back to your crown chakra. Focus on your chakra points lighting up as the ball of light circulates around you.
Once you have your mind settled and relaxed it is time to begin. Considering we are in a hot tub full of water it is best to do Vinyasa Yoga because you want to flow into each yoga position and keep your breath synchronized with each pose. Since you are in a spa, you may have to be creative with the way you are positioning yourself, and being aware of the seating of the spa. Feel free to adjust accordingly. This is your yoga practice; it is about you and what you can do. Never push yourself too hard, and listen to your body and what it wants. You can move as fast as you want or as slow. Our goal is to kindly stretch muscles, release toxins, and decompress your mind, body, and spirit.
Note: Each pose should be approximately 3 minutes long maximum. This is your practice, listen to your body and decide how long you should hold each pose and how long you want to breathe it out. It is completely up to you. This is a guideline to a yoga routine.
Please consult a physician before practice and stay hydrated!
Let’s flow like water!
Stretches: Thorax and Shoulder
Find a place in the spa where you can sit down and straighten your legs. Keep your back straight – your head aligned with your shoulders and hips. Flex both your feet and keep arms straight and palms flat on a surface. Inhale and lengthen your spine. Take 5 deep breaths with legs straight. While you are in this pose, feel free to stretch your ankles, move your toes, and release the energy in your feet. If you want to advance this stretch, lean forward and double your breaths.
Stretches: Thigh, Knee, Inguinal Region
With your legs straight in front of you, now you want to exhale, bend your knees, and pull your heels toward your pelvis, then drop your knees out to the sides and bring your feet together so the bottom of your feet is touching each other. If this stretch is painful, you can adjust by added a spa booster seat under you (find it at quickspaparts.com #ACC01400483) to raise your hips so your knees can open more.v
Stretches: Thigh, Knee, Ankle
Starting from a standing position in the middle of your spa, stand with hip-width apart. Spread your fingers and your toes and distribute your weight evenly. As you inhale squeeze your muscles together and lift your and torso muscles up. When you exhale, release all your muscles and let your shoulders drop and extend your fingers and toes.
Stretches: Vertebral column, Thigh, Calf, Ankle
From standing position, keep your knees together and slightly bend. Sink your weight back into the heels. Lengthen your tailbone and tilt your pelvis down and back. Keep your spine long and don’t let your stomach hang out. Left your chest and draw your shoulder blades towards the middle of the back. Push palms together and reach for the moon!
Stretches: Inguinal region, Ankle, Back torso
To take this one step further, you can flow into a squat onto one of the bench seats of the spa by placing your feet flat on the bench seat, extend lower back and draw shoulder blades toward one another. Press your elbows into knees to open the hips. Keep your hands in prayer and your chest open. Don’t forget to smile.
Stretches: Thorax, Lung, Navel, Thigh, Inguinal region, Calf, Ankle, Neck, Shoulder
Step your right foot forward and bend the knee into your right hand. Your left leg will be straight with your foot facing out. Bring both hands up, opening your chest and reach for the stars! Check your alignment on your hips and keep them facing forward. After taking a few breaths, switch sides.
Thorax, Lung, Inguinal region, Ankle, Shoulder, Leg
To transition into Warrior 2 you want to start with your right foot out at a 90-degree angle in front of you. Open your hips to the left side along with aligning your torso to the left. Reach out your right arm toward the front of the mat and your left arm toward the back of the mat with palms facing down. Keep both arms parallel to the floor and keep shoulders back. As you breathe in straighten your front leg and as you breathe out bend it back to 90-degree angle. As you bend your knee imagine reaching for something you want and achieving your goals. Repeat switching sides.
This is a great routine for Hot Tub Yoga the Cal Spas way!
Free your mind and your spirit will follow!
