Yoga for the Traveller
Whether its for business or for pleasure traveling is great for seeing new places and meeting new people. The only downside to that is that it’s easy to forget our normal routines and so go an entire trip without taking the time to work our bodies physically and mentally. These yoga poses are great for the traveller limited on time and space but not dedication to themselves.
- Warrior I
Starting in mountain pose step right leg back, keeping it straight and on the ball of the foot. Make sure to keep your hips straight forward and abdomen tucked in. Lift your hands up and feel the stretch through your back.
- Revolved Side Angle pose
From warrior one bring your right hand to the outside of your left foot, keeping your arm straight and place right foot flat on the ground with a 45 degree angle to your body. Lift your left arm to the sky then align 45 degrees to the ground, to create one line from your right foot all the way to your left finger tips. Keep hips neutral and feel the twist in your spine.
- Warrior II
Come out of the revolved side angle pose, keeping feet where they are and reaching arms out. Square hips and remember to keep abdomen tucked.
- Exalted Warrior
Bring your front arm up and over while your back arm reaches back and rests along your lower leg. Reach with both arms to feel the stretch along both sides of your body. For more of a challenge wrap your back arm around your back and reach for your front thigh.
- Extended side angle with a bind

This is a great way to work your abdomen while focusing on your posture and strengthening your back.

Bring your arms forward to be parallel with the floor. Be mindful to keep your back straight and abdomen tucked in.
- Camel Pose
