Last weekend was my first vacation in over a year! It was my aunt’s 40th birthday (woo woo!) and she wanted to celebrate by going to Cancùn, Mexico! Who would say no? Definitely not me or my cousin either. So it was a cute small girls trip. When we got to our resort, we got a schedule of activities, and wouldn’t ya know yoga is on there! I came prepared to do yoga anyway because I packed my yoga mat and towel. I figured even on vacation you should find time to reconnect. Even if that just means breathing techniques or meditation. My Yoga Anywhere, Yoga Everywhere series will be about finding time to connect while traveling. This one will mostly be some of the poses I did on the trip that I enjoyed most. So let’s start with Cancùn!
Dancer’s Pose (Natarajasana)
This was in the yoga class provided by the resort. This pose is all about balance and focus.
King Pigeon (Eka Pada Rajakapotasana)
This pose feels so amazing because it stretches your quads in the best way!
Warrior II (Virabhdrasana II)
Warrior III (Virabhadrasana III)
Crow Pose (Bakasana)
Is this not the funniest picture?! 😂🤣
Falling is a part of the process. But you get back up and try again. You have to learn to laugh at yourself. Yoga is fun even when you fall. 😂
Reverse Warrior (Viparita Virabhadrasana)
Great side body stretch.
It was important to me to find time on this trip to connect. That’s why I came prepared with my mat, towel, etc. But on the beach, it reminded me you just need your body. The Earth was our mat. It was our playground.
The biggest take away for me on this trip and in my practice was to slow down. We get so busy trying to take care of everything else and rushing through to meet deadlines whether they are ones we set for ourselves or set by others. Remember to relax. Everything will get done when it’s supposed to. No need to stress over anything you can’t control. Focus on what you can control and move forward.
