Over the holidays and New Years break I hit the road to southern California. Sometimes breaking out of my daily environment helps me to see life clearly and creates a new space for reflection. Doing yoga on the road however can be a challenge. I usually bring a travel mat with me and try to find places to practice in my room or on the hotel grounds. Or – you can find some more unusual places to practice, like the great outdoors! On my trip I seemed to find a lot of famous trees and environments that inspired me to do one of my favorite postures – tree pose! Enjoy – and I hope the new year brings many unusually new ways of doing everyday things.
