Travel, especially wellness travel, has been a big driving force behind my creative inspiration. It awakens the spirit, feeds the soul and teaches me things about myself, and others, that helps to expand my mind. I feel alive when I feel the energy of nature and I try to incorporate elements of that into my daily life when I return home. One of those ways, as you know, is with yoga. We know that the practice of yoga helps promote a balance of mind, body and spirit. The feeling I get when I work into a pose, even in a studio, is a similar feeling to being out and grounded with nature. There’s a tangible shift in energy happening in both cases.
Caldrea is a company I love that shares that similar point of view on the world. Their products are very transparent and full of fragrant essential oils that are inspired by the vital energy of nature. They came to me about an amazing travel contest they are running called The Test of Exquisite Taste, where you answer a series of questions in order to be entered to win a dream travel escape. I wanted to partner with them to share this with you so all of you can have the opportunity to win an experience that makes you feel that alive and in-touch with all of the simple luxuries that travel can offer. For all you wellness rockstars, the questions are something like this:
Do you know the Sanskrit name for this pose?
Dancer pose is one of my favorites because I get to reap the benefits of testing my balance, opening my chest and enjoying the bliss that comes with a subtle backbend. Like all poses, it’s a work in progress and I hope to one day be able to have the shoulder flexibility to grab my foot with both hands. All in due time! If you don’t know the traditional name then definitely take the quiz to find out and then enter!
Best of luck and let me know if you win so I can live vicariously through your adventure!
Some logistical details about the contest: 8 winners will be chosen, 1 per week. Contest ends May 15th but the wellness quiz is up this week so make sure to enter soon!
