I don’t like yoga. I’ve tried it, I wish I could like it, but I simply don’t. Blame it on the 7 month pregnant yogi’s at my gym whose nimble bodies makes me feel inadequate, but every time I try yoga I give up. But despite my lack of commitment, I want to be one of those people who love yoga.
This desire to want to love something is starting to influence my travels too. I’m currently planning a trip to thailand with a group of friends and am seriously considering a 5 day yoga retreat at the end of it. Why? Because I feel like I should love yoga.
This wanting to love something also causes trouble when travelling. Often times, people get so caught up in what they should do when they travel they forget to do the things they want to do. Just because you are backpacking through South America doesn’t mean you have to volunteer at a children’s orphanage even if your friends are. Similarly, if you don’t like to sleep in rooms with 7 strangers who have varying opinions of how often one should shower, then don’t stay in a hostel.
Knowing what type of a travler you are and what you like to do when you travel is key to enjoying your time. Remember, if you don’t enjoy practicing the downward facing dog when your at home, you won’t enjoy pay $3,000 for a 7 day retreat in Ubud.
