Yoga Travel by Doug Swenson (The adventure and daily problems are gifts in disguise)

This program embodies the concept that: “Yoga is a work in progress, and problems are often gifts in disguise,” and no less true with yoga travel and adventure. One of the key elements of seeking the yoga travel path can be summed up in this lovely quote by Ralph Waldo Emerson, “Though we travel the world over to find the beautiful, we must carry it with us, or we will find it not.”
