Whether you’ve been doing Chaturangas for decades or are just beginning to understand the benefits of a routine practice, the benefits of yoga are tried and true, especially when traveling to a new destination. A yoga class can stretch muscles and get the blood circulating after a long flight, and it can also help relax the body for a more restful stay.
