Salty Yoga:

Since ancient times, salt therapy (or halotherapy) has been used to treat all kinds of health problems and strengthen the immune system. Salt is a mineral rich in anti-bacterial, anti-viral and anti-inflammatory properties and when inhaled it is thought to help detoxify the respiratory system. Salt therapy combined with yoga allows the body to breathe more easily and come deeper into the poses; feeling rejuvenated and revitalized. Salt combined with yoga provides deep relaxation and stress relief, a balanced nervous system and an improved sense of well-being. Halotherapy keeps the lungs and the skin clean, boosts oxygen circulation, energizes the whole body and enhances mental alertness. Salty yoga is a Gentle yoga class with halotherapy for one hour. Mats are provided. Session is held at Pura Vida Salt Therapy from our next door yoga studio, yoga. For more information about halotherapy, visit www.puravidasalt. LEVEL 1-2
