Salt Therapy and yoga! 2 Benefits in 1 session!!!
This environment is ideal for yoga!
In the peaceful, tranquil and a unique therapeutic environment created in our Salt Rooms, you can practice yoga and meditation.
At Kilkenny Salt Therapy our Registered Yoga Teacher, Rebecca Humber, will teach restorative based yoga classes that incorporate lots of Pranayama (breathing exercises), gentle stretches, and guided relaxation. The 1 hour long class will make the most of the salt therapy room and leave participants feeling deeply calm, yet revitalized.
With a background in holistic healing such as Reiki and IET, Rebecca was always interested in Yoga, and how it could help her and others physically, emotionally, and spiritually. “ I’ve been on a personal journey for some time now, and Yoga has helped me immensely. In July 2018 I felt ready to complete my 200 hour yoga teacher training with Samasti Yoga in Bali, Indonesia. I am so grateful to have completed this intense course, and all that I learned from my teachers and peers.
My classes usually take a slower pace, concentrating on proper alignment, breath, connecting, and opening your heart. I am a compassionate and gentle teacher, who encourages growth of the physical and spiritual self. I will always be a student of the practice, and believe we all have a lot to learn from each other. “
The class will be suitable for complete beginners to yoga including those with back complaints and arthritis. The room gives the practice a new dimension which is rich in negative ions, purified air through convective diffusion from the salt walls.
We are using salt to kill bacteria in the respiratory system, to reduce inflammation in a natural way. Most people don’t breathe properly, and since the dry salt rooms are about breath, we thought it would be a good idea to offer you the option of using our room for yoga in a way that teaches people how to breathe more efficiently. Yoga has been studied and is increasingly recommended to promote relaxation, reduce stress, and help certain ailments.
As people inhale the healing qualities of salt, their respiratory system will detoxify.
Yoga’s health benefits are heightened in the salt room. People with chronic issues, such as asthma can also benefit from practicing in the salt room. Yoga is a great activity for strengthening the lungs and the muscular system. People with these kinds of chronic conditions should visit a salt rooms every 2-3 days for three to six weeks, and then come once a week for maintenance.
Salt therapy and yoga are a lot alike. They are centuries old practices, they heal the body, mind, and soul. And people practice them regularly to maximize benefits.
Yoga is a comprehensive system for well-being on all levels. Most people think of it as a program of physical postures designed to purify the body and provide physical strength and stamina required for long periods of meditation. There are many different types of yoga that can be tailored to any need or situation. While practicing beach yoga on vacation, you probably didn’t realize that the salty sea air provides additional physical benefits. Salt is an all-natural and effective antibacterial, antiviral, antifungal, and anti-inflammatory mineral. That’s where salty yoga comes into play.
Rather than travel to a beach, you can practice yoga in a salt room, one 45-minute salt therapy session is the equivalent of inhaling salty air for several days at the beach. As you inhale the salt particles, your lungs open, and you boost your respiratory immune system over time. Salty yoga combines the benefits of a salt therapy session with poses that help build strength and flexibility in the primary and secondary muscles of respiration. This adds to the increase of breathing capacity, oxygenation, endurance, and performance.
In salty yoga, each pose focuses on opening specific parts of the lungs and diaphragm, and the combination of moves and dry salt aerosol help you take deeper breaths. This, in turn, relaxes you. Spine-lengthening poses like Mountain Pose and Warrior II help open the diaphragm, signaling to the nervous system to relax. And as you became more in tune with your breath, you can move deeper in each pose.
The goal of salty yoga is to make you feel rejuvenated rather than depleted. It isn’t about challenging your body, burning calories, or toning muscles. It’s about deep relaxation, becoming more aware of your breath and opening places in your body where air is blocked. Many of the poses will be easy enough to do at home, and your lungs will thank you for learning how to use them correctly after you cleaned them out.
There are so many benefits to yoga, perhaps too many to list here! But here’s a few of the main ones…
- Improves Flexibility
- Improves Posture
- Builds Strength & Muscle Tone
- Improves Balance
- Supports Joint Health
- Prevents Back Pain
- Improves Respiration, Energy & Vitality
- Reduces Stress & Anxiety
- Improves Sleep
- Increases Self Confidence
Salt is beneficial to the body when inhaled!!!
We use a cutting-edge technology halogenerator that broken up the salt crystals into small particles to increase the therapeutic dry salt that is also negatively ionized which accelerates the elimination of toxins from the body and boosts the respiratory and immune systems. The finely ground salt particles can be breathed in deeply for health benefits that you wouldn’t get breathing air, say, at the beach, where salt particles are too large to reach the lower respiratory system, salt is known to have anti-bacterial, anti-viral and anti-inflammatory properties.
Since ancient times, it has been widely recognised as a means of improving overall health. Salt gives off negative ions, which, when breathed in deeply, may help our bodies balance the storm of positive ions we absorb from phones, computers and TVs, as well as much of the electrical technology we are exposed to on a daily basis. It could help promote a greater equilibrium in our bodies, as well as keep us stronger, healthier and more resilient.
It’s impossible not to notice the beautiful pink Himalayan and Praid salt all over the room. This type of salt is unrefined, unprocessed raw salt mined by hand from caves that formed 250 million years ago as ocean salt settled into geologic pockets. It also has antifungal, anti-inflammatory, antibacterial, and antiviral properties,
The salt emits negative ions, which help clear the air of mold spores, pollen, pet dander, odors, cigarette smoke, bacteria, viruses, dust and other hazardous airborne particles. Negative ions work by attaching themselves to positively charged particles in large numbers. Computers, TVs, and cellphones all release positive ions, which can lead us to feel more agitated.
In particular, salty therapy treatments have been touted as a helpful preventative measure to avoid the common cold, some respiratory viruses/infections, and some other ear, nose, and throat conditions
Salty Yoga does more than just help our respiration, it can allegedly alleviate several skin conditions
Besides the health benefits touted by salt cave enthusiasts, one of the clear benefits comes from simply being in the space itself. Besides the salt air, there are 15 tons of Himalayan and Praid salt in the walls and the floor that will increase the salinity in the air.
Rebecca will hold regular Hatha, Vinyasa, or Vinyasa Slow Flow Classes. These would be mainly for beginners or mixed level, the classes would include Pranyama (breathing techniques), and meditation.
You aren’t just cured after one time, the more exposure you have, the more benefits you receive.
