Yoga Off the Mat and Off on Vacation ☀️

Have you ever heard that you enjoy your vacation the most 3 days before you actually leave?

My mentor shared this idea with me recently, although I’m not sure where he heard it…

He explained that the joy of anticipation culminates three days before departure, and that the actual experience never lives up to the mind’s vision.

I argued that if this is true, then we all need to upgrade our vacay mojo!

The (Downward) Dog Days of Summer: Home Yoga Sequence

As the summer heat descends and travel season heats up, you may find yourself a little uncomfortable or agitated from being out of your routine.

I thrive on routine yet I love to travel and be new places. Routine helps me feel safe and soothes my anxiety while travel wakes up my creativity and reignites my ability to find adventure in all things - even the familiar when I am back home again. 

Being away from my beloved studio practice does take it toll, physically and emotionally. Luckily, I've been able to team up with First for Women Magazine to offer a series of postures to keep any unwanted summer heat at bay, whether it manifests in the form of stress, stiff, tight muscles from long rides, or anxiety. (And to my diverse readership, this sequences is appropriate for all genders, not only women)

I've listed the sequence in photos below.
