Quick and Easy Yoga Tips To Do While Traveling

Sasha BahadorThe beautiful, inside and out, Sasha Bahador, shares her rituals and quick yoga tips when traveling. Before she was even a yoga teacher, 10 years ago, she has always been a connector of people. Sasha found in yoga, its way of living, conducting our lives and relationships a profound identification. According to her experience, the whole premise of yoga is creating connection be it between people, situations or actions, and Sasha’s infeasible desire is, ultimately, to connect people with themselves, with their authentic soul selves.

“The yoga postures are a vehicle to access the deepest layers of ourselves that create that connection”, she explains. “I call yoga the silent reviver. Some people start in yoga because of a back pain or to keep fit, but even if they don’t realize it, they are waking up, they are remembering how precious is to be alive”.

How yoga influences your life?
Yoga transformed me from a liar to someone who keeps it real. Through the practice of the postures, breath and way of life, yoga makes space in the body, in the mind and grants you a pause. In that pause I got to find my indweller or my wisdom self and  when you go that deep inside of yourself and turn on the light,  you can see what’s inside, it’s a little bit hard to hide. For me that was the moment when I noticed I was full of sh*t. I was losing my friends and family because I became super righteous like I wouldn’t eat my mom’s food, in many ways I was living a lie and disconnected from the people I love the most. After a long journey of practicing and peeling away this lies, I was able to find the light again and the answers to my questions.

What are you most passionate about? 
I’m a believer in humans. I think we can make it and what really excites me is the possibility that even if one person wakes up and sees what’s real and what’s not, then we’ve made progress, and if I can facilitate that in some way, then that’s really exciting for me.

What is your yoga travel routine?
I love inversions, anything upside down is my favorite. If I don’t have much time at least I do a few of those and meditation, even if it’s just a check in of how my heart feels and what the quality of my thoughts are.

What do you always travel with?
A ridiculously oversized scarf. I love being wrapped up in something. Also, my essential oils and a poetry book.

Now that you go to know Sasha a little bit more, here are her instructions for some quick and easy yoga tips to do while traveling.
