Your Yoga-On-the-Go​ Travel Flow

After a long flight or car ride, we usually feel pretty yucky. So we tapped yoga instructors Krissy Jones and Chloe Kernaghan, co-founders of New York City-based Sky Ting Yoga, for a routine you can do while traveling (or at the office after hours of sitting at your desk) to bring movement into the body and let go of all that accumulated tension.

The sequence starts in child's pose and flows through mainstay positions like downward dog, boat pose, and pigeon pose, and includes a deep forward fold that helps relieve lower back pain and open up the hamstrings while relaxing the nervous system. The flow transitions to a rounded plow pose—another restorative pose for your lower back, especially after sitting on a plane, bus, or chair for way too long. (Here, score more yoga poses that can help alleviate chronic back pain.) 

Flow through this 15-minute sequence wherever you are and you're guaranteed to feel like a new person. Then get on with your vacation—especially with flight prices predicted to drop
