How to take your practice on vacation

Halfmoon - How to take your practice on vacation

With all of the plans that we try to squeeze into our vacation, taking time for ourselves and our yoga practice can be the last thing on the to do list. Hitting the mat while you travel can be a great way to stay grounded through your travels and get the most out of your vacation.

How to fit yoga into your schedule

Lets face it, we may not all be able to take 90 minutes a day out of our busy vacation schedules for full yoga classes. Taking 15- 30 minutes a day from the comfort of your home or hotel room can help you to feel rejuvenated and capture that blissful yoga feeling which may be easier when you’re on vacation.

What you will need

Some hotels may provide complimentary yoga mats, but If you would like to take a mat with you, our travel yoga mat and yoga mat strap will be your perfect traveling companion. The travel mat weighing 1.76 lbs is so lightweight that you can take it anywhere your life takes you.

Go at your own pace

Remember, be gentle with yourself when practicing without a teacher. This practice time should be about connecting with yourself and feeling good, so be sure to ease off if you don’t feel comfortable. You’re on vacation- don’t try to make up for lost time by pushing yourself or your practice, just enjoy it, breathe and relax.

Enjoy Your Summer

Summer is never long enough, so enjoy every moment of it by taking time for yourself and your practice.

Gratitude is an attitude that can be cultivated not only around Thanksgiving for blessings in our lives, but during each moment of life — towards ourselves! Our brains are programmed to protect and to survive, and when we live a life out in the world it is nearly impossible to avoid feelings of self-judgment or unworthiness.
