When I get off a plane, all I want to do is to get into a pigeon pose on the most hygienic surface as far from from my coughing seat-mate as possible. If you can wait until you get to your hotel room, and your hips hate planes as much as mine do, pull out your smartphone and get your body back to a happy place. AND If you’re in a room at a Kimpton Hotel, don’t even worry about toting your mat. They’ve got you covered with their “yoga mat in every room” policy.
But back to the app – developed by beloved Chicago yogi Allison English, who teaches at Equinox, the app provides a full free routine that focuses on your upper back and your hips. Yes please. Each movement and hold is timed and is guided by Allison’s calming voice.
Cost: While the first sequence is free, Allison continues to add more sequences to the app, and additional sequences can be purchased for $1.99/pop as an in-app purchase.
