All that's needed for me is a small room, a mat, and my Yoga posture diagrams. Going to a studio is very beneficial to ask questions, do the meditative sequence, have your posture corrected, and a place to relax.


I travel a lot both for and for pleasure. I always bring a large pashmina, cashmere in the winter and gauze in the summer. They can help me cover myself when I need some space and smell like. The good old blankie if you will. I also enjoy playing some of my favorite music when I first arrive. And of a candle. Peace.


what i always do while traveling is make sure i do some stretches and brahma asana for the neck and and then meditate for at least some time before meals on flights. if you can see the wonderful skies and the view from top if you can get a window seat the images that you form of heaven and how it would be, start to materialize you actually see a pretty sight.. Like wordsworth says that you can carry these images in your mind and heart and replace times of distress with the happiness you felt from nature with these images you saw on your trips. it works for me you could try it too...
you could also try avoiding the television and using the flying time for contemplation..


I am flying this weekend for our family annual holiday and this article is coming at the right timing. I shall remember to practise my breathing and meditation & try to remember Patanjali's teachings & now really look forward to just enjoying my hols. Thanks a lot


I am flying next week, a six-hour journey changing planes in Houston, which I never enjoy; flying has become a hassle instead of fun.

Now I will take a better attitude with me, practice my breathing, and take a Yoga tape to use while I'm there. Thanks for the insight.
