Two nights ago I got home late because I had some prep work I had to do for my trip to Canada. I needed to get my yoga in so I went to YogaGlo to find a 30 minute workout. Dave had just gotten back from his run and wanted to do abs anyways so I had some time before we were going to make our late dinner.
I found the “Quick Fix Flow” by Tiffany Cruikshank that focused on your hips and groin. If you are one of those people who need active yoga session, this workout isn’t for you. But this workout was perfect for my mood and my body the other night. My hips were really tight after sitting all day, especially my left hip. The Quick Fix Flow workout has many static poses that allow you to relax and really get a deep stretch. My favorite of the workout was the adjusted pigeon pose where you lay more to your side versus straight forward.
I was a little worried about my hips being in a lot of pain from tightening up on the plane ride, but it wasn’t as bad as I expected for my hips. I still did a few yoga poses as soon as I got to my hotel room-a couple of sun salutations and pigeon pose. This morning I got up and used my iPhone app called Simple Yoga to do a 20 minute workout which was nice but I did level 1 and I think I need to step it up to level 2!
I used this app because I didn’t want to pay for wifi, but I found out I can get free internet through a hard connection! That means tomorrow morning I am going to try to do a Gaiam TV workout!
Do you sometimes need a more relaxed workout? Or do you always need a really active workout?
I used to always feel like I need a really intense workout, but I learned that my body actually needs and enjoys some of the more relaxed workouts.
How do you workout when traveling?
I try to find the hotel gym, run outside, or I am not getting fond of my apps or online websites for fitness videos!
