Yoga While Traveling

Take Your Yoga on the Road

If you're traveling for the holidays, that doesn't mean you should ditch exercise altogether. Unfortunately you can't always get to a gym, and it may be too chilly for you to work out outdoors. That's why I love doing yoga when I'm on the road because you can do it practically anywhere. Plus it's quiet, so you can do it in your room without disturbing anyone, and it's also a great way to relieve stress (you know, in case you have any holiday stress).

Here are some things you may need for your traveling yoga class:

  1. A lightweight mat. You can fold it instead or rolling it, and place it on the bottom of your suitcase. They also make foldable yoga mats. If you can't fit a mat, than you can always practice on a hardwood floor or carpet.
  2. Comfortable workout clothes.
  3. Your favorite yoga DVD.
  4. If you prefer doing your own flow of poses, pack some relaxing music instead.
  5. An eye pillow to help you relax in Savasana at the end of your practice.

Fit's Tips: If you do have a little free time, find out if there's a yoga studio in the area. I always love to try out new teachers and different kinds of yoga, so find out what their holiday schedule is to see if you can sneak in a class.
