Here at Hip & Healthy, when it comes to working out – convenience is key. As much as we love attending the latest fitness class and gym session a few times a week – to keep things consistent we rely on more accessible workouts that we can easily fit in to our busy days. For us, the same goes for when we travel. We’d much prefer to see the sights than be cooped up in a gym. With this in mind, on our most recent Hip & Healthy trip to Stockholm, we decided to try out the latest online fitness studio to crop up on the scene and lets just say, we were impressed! Read on for why you should take your Yoga on holiday with Yoogaia this Summer…

Take Your Yoga Anywhere

Yoogaia is the first live online yoga studio that brings yoga, pilates, core and barre classes to wherever you may be in real-time. Whether you’re travelling for business, pleasure or a bit of both, Yoogaia makes it easy to factor in a daily workout from your hotel room at any time of day. As long as you have an internet connection, you will be able to participate in a range of ‘live’ and recorded classes wherever you are!

Stick To Your Own Schedule

When time is tight whilst travelling, planning your workout around your travel plans is key, not the other way around! Whilst rushing off to a fitness class or yoga session in a new city can take hours out of your day – attending a yoga class at the click of a button can see you out the door and enjoying what your travel destination has to offer uninterrupted.

You Make The Rules

Gone are the days of having to participate in a yoga style that you’re not so keen on due to time restraints, Yoogaia offers a whole host of live classes to suit all levels and stylistic preferences. From curvy girl yoga to yogic sleep express, stretching for runners to Broga – there’s something for everyone available at any time of day.

Virtual Guidance

Whilst other online workout videos offer a non-interactive fitness platform, our favourite thing about Yoogaia is that your teacher is there to give you specialised help via webcam  if you require. With an option to allow your teacher to watch and guide you as you practise, the personal guidance available is especially beneficial for beginners and those recovering from injuries who require adjustments and corrections whilst in more challenging postures.

Design Your Own Practice

Here at Hip & Healthy we love to mix up our workouts! On our most recent trip to Stockholm, we enjoyed a daily 30 minute Yoogaia Yin yoga class – the perfect way to wake up! Followed by a 45 minute core class to pump us up for our day. In addition to this, we finished each day with a 30 minute Yoogaia yoga stretch class which was pure bliss after a busy day touring Stockholm by foot.

To celebrate the Travel with Yoogaia campaign, we’d like to offer 3 x 4 month Yoogaia passes, meaning you can take yoga with you wherever you go this Summer!  Simply email [email protected] with the subject YOOGAIA COMP for a chance to win.  Winners will be notified next week.
