Yoga on Vacation

I don’t know about you, but on vacation I eat and drink like I’ve been locked in a dark closet with no food or alcohol for a week. That being said, I need to at least get a quick workout in each day in order to burn some of my caloric intake. This is a little mini flow that you can do in your hotel room. FYI Most hotels have yoga mats! Just have one sent to your room. That way you don’t even have to walk to the gym, which for me is sometimes half the battle.

Start in child's pose with your arms extended and chest to your thighs. You can widen your knees as much or a little as comfortable for you.

Take your right arm up and then feed it under your body to give yourself a great shoulder stretch.

Repeat on both sides, stretching your arms off the the left for three breaths then to the right side of your mat for 3 breaths.

After stretching your arms, go back into child's pose, then straighten your legs into Downward Facing Dog, pedaling your feet out towards the back and stretching your hamstrings and Achilles tendon.

(Downward Facing Dog) Press into the balls of your feet, and press your heels down to the mat. Hold for 5 breaths.

Jump (or walk) forward to the top of your mat and fold your torso over your thighs.

(Jumping up into forward fold)

The goal is to get your body folded as flat as possible, like a piece of paper folded in half.

(Forward Fold)

Then stand up, reach your arms up and high to the sky.

Fold your body forward again over your thighs then come up to your fingertips.

Now, jump or walk your feet backwards to plank pose.

(Plank)

Lower into chaturanga then upward facing dog, then back to down dog. Repeat this sequence 5 times with your breath.

Come to the top of your mat and sit in chair pose.

(Chair Pose)

Now, lean forward and fold your torso over your thighs to touch your toes.

Come to your fingertips and then jump or walk back into plank.

Chaturanga, Up dog, Downdog,...hold for 3 breaths.

(Hold at downward facing dog)

Raise your right leg and bring it through into Warrior 1 pose. Hold 3 breaths.

Then again go to plank, chaturanga, up dog, down dog.

(Hold at downward facing dog)

| REPEAT FOR LEFT SIDE | Raise your left leg and bring it through into warrior one pose. Hold 3 breaths and then go to plank, chaturanga, up dog, down dog (like above). Repeat this 3 to 5 times.

Roll onto your back and rest your legs up against the wall or shoulder stand.

You can then roll your legs toward your head into Plow Pose.

and then Shavasana.

Namaste

Friends, I love sharing my yoga tips with you.

(Including my yoga outfits!! >> My fun printed leggings are by K-Deer btw)

What do you think? I do this routine each morning, even while on vacation. (I specifically did this one above in Napa Valley while on vacation visiting the wine country!)

Can you adapt this yoga routine for yourself? Let me know what you would you like to see!
