The Travel Yogi lives their motto of “Where Will Yoga Take You…”by spending a lot of our time in the air and on the road scouting out locations: eating food, sleeping in casitas and practicing yoga (we know, it’s a rough life). All of this is a hard-flown effort to create amazing yoga retreat and adventure experiences and for the benefit of our yogi travelers (you!). Carefully scouting each location is as much about collecting some vitamin D as it about being able to pass along the ins and outs and make sure it’s the right yoga retreat/adventure fit for you. Everyone at The Travel Yogi believe wholeheartedly that yoga and travel are transformational. They love what we do, who they work with and having their feet on the ground and heads in the clouds. And they’re wondering… where will yoga take you?
