Yoga is said to be all about the breath. Each class is tailored around movements and sequences intended to pair with the rising and falling of your chest. But what if you could maximize the benefit of that breath work? Well, now you can, by doing yoga in a salt cave.
EverybodyFights‘ trainer Laura Mucci and G20 Spa + Salon are coming together for an exclusive yoga class inside the spa’s salt cave every Tuesday at 8 a.m. and Wednesday at 6 p.m., starting July 10 and running until August 15, this summer.
The cave, which is filled with pure Himalayan salt stones, is equipped with a halogenerator, which heats, crushes, and disperses micro-particles of the salt into the air, and is a perfect place for deep inhales and detoxifying exhales, as the salt absorbs allergens, toxins, and foreign substances in the body. Salt therapy, and the negative ions in the room, are said to help improve mood and energy and the anti-inflammatory and anti-bacterial properties of the salt help reduce stress and relieve sinus and respiratory problems—like those pesky allergies.
Normally, a 45-minute session in the cave involves hanging out in a reclining chair, complete with a robe and flip-flops, so this will be a little more active (and 15 minutes longer). Just think of it as breathing in the briny air and exhaling all your worries.
The yoga class will be a restorative flow in a small group setting, with only 10 participants per class, and is part of the EverybodyFights five-part class series (train, bags, road, fight, flow), which is based on a real boxer’s training camp. Fighters need their relaxation and restoration too, and so do you. Salty yoga awaits.
$50, July 10-August 15, Tuesdays at 8 a.m. and Wednesdays at 6 p.m., G2o Spa + Salon, 33 Exeter St., Boston, eventbrite.com.
