When packing to go on a wellness holiday, it is useful to take your own personal travel mat and gear.
Finding the correct equipment that fully suits your needs is important to prevent injuries and help you reap the benefits of yoga and exercise.
When I first started yoga, I personally had to have a slightly thicker yoga mat than average otherwise the lower part of my back doesn’t feel cushioned enough making me feel so sore after only one or two sessions!
Barefoot yoga supplied a wide variety of sustainable and comfortable yoga props and gear.
Are you getting enough vitamins during your travels? or even, at home?
Sometimes when we go travelling, we can be limited to what food is available at the destinations we travel to.
This often makes us feel sluggish and tired.
You can overcome the common negative effects of travelling with yoga stretches. Read the guide here.
Plus, you can supplement stretches with nutritional vitamins.
Us health-conscious yogi’s usually travel with organic supplements to help keep us healthy while on the road -the last thing we ever want while on vacation is to become sick!
