Morning Poses for the Yoga Traveler

Weeks ago, I had this A-HA moment where I decided to venture into wellness traveling. Something I figured I’d probably give up at the nearest McDonalds. I mean, the nugget team box. am I right? Hehe! But I gave it a go. And here’s why you should too!

For the coffee lovers, there will be mornings you’ll feel super energized without even needing caffeine. Crazy I know, but it’s possible! Not needing espressos to start the day is quite magical!

Hopping between buses, trains, & more strains the body, and with all the adventure out there, who has time to rest from exhaustion? So it’s really important that your body feels strong and rejuvenated.

The NOW. I had a brief Insta convo with another traveler about how travels are better when you’re solely based in the now, the happening. Not focused on what country you’ll visit next or any related logistics. And when asked for advice, I replied,

“I practice yoga with an intention of focusing on the here and the now. So whenever I’m traveling and feeling a little stressed and overwhelmed, I focus on my breathing. Then that intention and calmness comes back. And it helps me stay grounded.”

SO, when on the road, each morning I practice 5 simple yoga poses without any added variation. Here they are:
