Lamirse da Motta Pacheco is a professional in the healing art of yoga and a former gymnast, swimmer, and gymnast. The Fairmont Maldives Sirru Fen Fushi is one of the best places to practice yoga in the world. Lamirse offers guests the opportunity to perfect their sun salutations against a gorgeous Indian Ocean setting. She tells her story as part of the International Yoga Day celebrations.
1. When did you first begin practicing yoga, and why did you do so?
When Lamirse da Motta Pacheco was in university, she began practicing yoga. She was diagnosed with gastritis and Fox-Fordyce syndrome, a rare skin ailment. The more she practiced, the better she felt: her gastritis attacks were sporadic after five months, and her skin condition improved. She then decided to become a yoga instructor, and she was the first registered Yoga Teacher in her district of Manaus (Amazons), Brazil.
2. What are some of the most surprising benefits of yoga?
Yoga is the ideal discipline for aligning and balancing the mind and body, according to Lamirse da Motta Pacheco. The practice can help with a wide range of stress-related illnesses that manifest as diseases or disorders, such as Fox-Fordyce disease, which I had. It helps with headaches, gastritis, depression, and anxiety.
3. To reap the benefits of yoga, how much should we incorporate it into our lives?
After more than a year in lockdown, Lamirse da Motta Pacheco: We're in critical need of self-connection and comprehensive integration. If there is a silver lining, it is that we are now more conscious than ever before of the necessity of wellbeing in order to stay strong, healthy, and grounded while navigating uncertainty. Everyone, in my opinion, should set aside some time each day for self-care and wellness.
I achieve this through yoga, and I would advocate doing so on a daily basis to observe consistent benefits and increase vitality and energy levels. Beginners can, of course, begin with a 15-minute daily practice to make it easier to incorporate yoga into their daily routine.
4. People suffer from poor posture after months of working from home; what are the best yoga positions to prevent this?
Before I go into how yoga can help you improve your posture, I'd advise people to become active again and not let this new sedentary pattern become the norm, as it's bad for both physical and mental health.
If you've lost mobility and are having trouble with your posture as a result of your indoor lifestyle, I recommend trying some of yoga's restorative and grounding poses, such as spinal twist and pranayama (breath awareness).
5. What recommendations would you give to someone who is interested in starting a yoga practice?
If you want to get into yoga, look for a local studio or take online sessions. Remember that yoga is a journey, a never-ending mind-body practice. Listen to your body and recognize when it's time to take a break or when you may push yourself further. If you don't notice results right away, don't get discouraged; it doesn't indicate the practice isn't working.
6. What draws you to the Maldives as a vacation destination? Is it a source of mindfulness?
Wellness on the Indian Ocean's coastlines. For me, teaching yoga in the Maldives is a dream come true.
