It sounds like a cliché, but it’s true. We all have things that make us feel better and for millions of people around the world, yoga is one of them. It may seem like the world has gone yoga-mad – there’s a studio on every corner, a plethora of technicolour leggings pounding the pavements and suddenly it seems everyone is carrying a rolled up rubber mat to work – but it’s not just any old fad. Yoga is here to stay.

There is nothing worse that lugging a big suitcase around on holiday. We’ve all done it – stuffed that huge black bag to bursting and regretted it. Those who travel well, travel light. They are minimalist in their approach to packing and excessive in the rewards they reap. No dragging the heavy case up flights of steps, missing the train, battling on escalators and getting in and out of cabs. Hotel on the top of a hill? Not a problem at all! Mostly, we over-pack because we’re trying to control the uncontrollable. We want to account for every eventuation. An outfit for every occasion, every season, every moment – we don’t want to be caught short or not looking our best.
We all know that special feeling, butterflies in the tummy, throat a little tight, a mix of anticipation and expectation as the plane takes off. It’s the feeling of leaving the daily grind behind, of soaring to new heights and reaching new shores. Travel may seem like a luxury, an added bonus if we get everything else right, but expanding your horizons is much more than that. A holiday, be it for two days or two months does more than relax us. It makes us better people.
