11 Genius Places to Strike a Yoga Pose

If you think your asanas have to be confined to the yoga studio or your home practice, then think again! You can practice yoga in everything you do simply by connecting with yourself, your body, and your breath no matter where you are or what you’re doing.

Whether you’re traveling in a far off destination or simply hanging out with your loved ones at home, you can take your yoga with you to make it a part of your crazy, unique life. Yoga isn’t all about the asana, but the poses are half the fun. In the spirit of bringing yoga into all aspects of your life, here are 12 fun places to strike a yoga pose.
