Yoga On-the-Go: Staying Committed to Your Practice During Summer Travel


Yoga on the go: Yoga and summer travel


Hey there, wanderlust yogis! As you jet off to your sun-soaked destinations this summer, remember: your yoga practice doesn't need to take a vacay too. Yes, travel can be a wild rollercoaster of thrill and exhaustion, but fear not! Yoga can be your trusty seatbelt. 🎢✈️


Our bodies might scream, "Are we there yet?!" as we fold ourselves into cramped airplane seats or lug around suitcases heavier than our heaviest kettlebells. But here's the thing: you don't need a yoga mat, a yoga studio, or even a yoga block to bring your practice with you. Got a body? Congratulations, you're equipped! 🏋️‍♀️


Let's break it down. Here are three yogi-approved ways to keep your practice alive and kicking during your travels:

1. Alternate Nostril Breathing (Nadi Shodhana Pranayama): All you need is your breath, and last we checked, that's TSA-approved! This calming technique balances the mind and can be done anywhere, even as you wait in those never-ending airport lines. Just remember, you're not on 'The Voice', so keep your humming on the down-low. 🎤


2. Sun Salutations (Surya Namaskar A): Sun Salutations in the airport? Why not! If people can walk their dogs or play catch in the terminal (we've seen it all, folks), you can sneak in a few rounds of Sun A. It's like your body's way of saying, "Wakey, wakey, we've got a plane to catch!" 🌞


3. Simple Meditations: Repeat after me: "I will not let travel stress turn me into a grumpy cat." Simple mantra meditations can help you stay grounded amidst the hustle and bustle. Plus, it's an excellent way to look super mysterious and cool. 😎


Remember, yogis, your practice is more than what happens on the mat at our Mantra Yoga Studio. It's how you navigate the bends, twists, and occasional turbulence of life - whether you're in Danvers, Massachusetts, or dancing with flamingos in Aruba. So keep breathing, keep stretching, and keep laughing - because if you can find zen in the middle of Terminal C, you can find it anywhere.


Bon voyage and Namaste, wanderlusters! 🧘‍♀️🌍
