Day 74: Travel Yoga Mat
It's not always easy to make time to exercise when you travel. Even staying at a hotel with a well equipt gym, you may not have the motivation or be to jet lagged to conform to their operating hours. On occasion, all I've wanted to do was do a few yoga stretches or some basic strengthening moves, so I've borrowed the yoga mats from the gym. Some hotels, like the Mandarin Oriental chain, has a yoga mat available in the room!
That's when I decided that I need to have a yoga mat that can travel with me. There are a few listed on Amazon, but I went with The Khataland YoFoMat one because he had the best reviews. After four trips with it so far, I am happy with how it's performed. Even if I'm using it only once I feel like it's a good investment because it keeps me balanced and more in tune with my body when I am traveling.
The Khataland YoFoMat is easy to fold and comes with it's own carrying case. Inside the case, you'll find a placard that has a few yoga moves on it if you need suggestions for energizing yoga poses. There is a line that goes down the middle to aid in folding, but it comes in handy to keep your alignment.
Now whenever I travel, I make sure to pack my toothbrush, and my yoga mat!
