Travel helps you see the world through a different lens. Just like a focused yoga practice can help diminish stress from the body, a change in latitude can change your attitude. Getting away from the distractions and comfort of home can create a fresh perspective on absolutely everything. Do you ever notice how aware you are when something is exciting and new? Traveling to unfamiliar destinations and meeting a variety of people will not only rejuvenate your spirit but helps to boost confidence, compassion and self-awareness. Yoga Digest believes that travel is not a luxury, but a necessity for optimal growth on the path to enlightenment. Mix in some yoga with that travel and we are all on board! From mountains to beaches, cabins to resorts, camping under the stars or spa sessions and fine dining; it can all create space for you to bloom. Here is a list of some of our favorite destinations for yogis wishing not only to seek but to discover. Whether you are interested in music, culture, food, deep roots of yoga or exotic travel, there is literally something on this list for every yogi! We hope to see you at some of the Yoga Digest Best of Yogi Destinations in 2017! Keep calm and travel on.
