Q: What do you love most about traveling?
I love how traveling gives you perspective and reminds you of what’s really important. When I travel across the world I like finding similar people, interested in similar things (yoga/meditation), in a totally different culture. It’s an amazing thing to see how yoga can unify so many people.

Q: You often teach and lead retreats beyond NYC. What’s your advice to those attending a training or retreat in another country?
Do as much research as possible on the country/weather/and culture before you arrive, and always keep an open mind!

Q: Let’s talk packing. What are your essentials?
Essentials: my passport, headphones, travel yoga mat, my travel water bottle, vitamins and homeopathic tinctures to stay healthy, my favorite teas, an eye mask for sleeping on the plane, and I always bring my lavender essential oil roll-on to help me relax the first night in a new place.

 Q: What has been your best yoga experience outside of NYC?
I love leading retreats in my second home, Aruba. The beauty and serenity of endless private beaches gives space for everyone on to truly relax and rejuvenate.

Q: What are your travel tips for staying sane?
When traveling I love to bring my roll-on peppermint oil. It helps me to stay refreshed while on the plane for a few hours. I stick to a routine 10-minute meditation in the mornings and evenings in my hotel room, as well as a few rounds of sun salutations in the morning to get moving. I also always bring some homeopathic remedies and a Good Nite essential oil for sleeping well while adjusting to jet lag.
