Humans were designed to be active – “to play”. It lifts our spirits with a happy high and takes us away from our routine work stress, screaming children, depression and worries. Play helps us to focus and concentrate and removes the human suspicion, making us feel better and improves our behaviour towards others. Play is no stranger to the young – indeed children learn through play. But we adults, whether men and women, have literally forgotten how to play? Not surprising that for some people, play time is down to almost zero. Ahh... the worst aspects of “modern life”.
At Cocoon, we define modern living through practicing yoga in a playground environment. Yoga is conducted in a cosy, buddy and serene environment to ensure that each individual’s playing needs are met.
Yoga yourself healthy
We all know that play also makes us feel good. A regular 60 minute play session can have a profound impact on our health and well being. Yoga is essentially a gentle exercise. Health and fitness are attained through proper exercise, postures, stretches which tones the muscles and ligaments, enhances the flexibility of the spine and joints, and improves blood circulation. This is really important for people who don’t get regular exercise.
At Cocoon, we perform yoga routines so that our bodies release a cocktail of hormones and chemicals that have startling positive effects on our system. Stress is reduced, blood pressure drops, depression is lifted and our immune system is boosted.
Yoga is a non-religious, non-denominational practice of attaining healthy body, mind and soul, with an emphasis on dharma. Dharma is about uniting people. Getting people together. Apart from health and fitness reasons, yoga can do more for our mind and soul. Yoga breathing exercise teaches us on how to control our mental state. This helps us achieve a calmer and more focused mind, and increases our energy level. The meditative aspect of yoga may also reach a deeper, more spiritual and more satisfying place in our hearts through inner peace which needs to become an essential part of our daily lives.
Yoga combines meditation exercise and yoga breathing exercise to give you the health benefits of play. Yoga exercise almost always leads to real uplifting of the spirit, especially when practiced in a group.
Anyone can practice Yoga without reason
Yoga can become a popular way to get in shape, release stress and enjoy good health. At Cocoon, we welcome anyone, young or old, men or women in whatever present conditions to enjoy the fun and benefits of yoga. One of the most attractive aspects of yoga is that you don’t need to spend a fortune on expensive equipment and apparel to begin the workouts.
