Have mat will travel: a yoga sequence that's perfect for those on the go. One of my favorite things about Yoga is that it is a practice that you can literally do anytime, anywhere. We often get stuck thinking we need to be in a yoga class for 90 minutes for it to ‘count,’ but this is simply not the case. Even a single yoga pose can be extremely effective on a number of levels. Those of us that are lucky to be escaping some of this cold weather and snow and traveling to warmer climates can use the following simple sequence to counter the stress of travel. As nice as it is to escape, it is not without its challenges. This sequence was shot by my 11 year old son, Jack, on our way to Tulum, Mexico where I teach a yearly retreat. We could call this ‘Have Mat, Will Travel’ but we don’t even need a yoga mat.
