YogaTravelTree.com was inspired by the simple idea of creating a comprehensive website to help yogis (and wannabe yogis) find meaningful yoga experiences and resources at home and around the world. The result is a dynamic online community of smart people passionate about yoga, health, wellness, laughter, travel, and general awesomeness. YogaTravelTree.com features a massive collection of articles on yoga retreats, yoga events and festivals, yoga teacher trainings, wellness, nutrition, and everything in between, to help educate yogis of all levels and interests. In 2014, YogaTravelTree.com began developing and running meaningful adventure-style yoga retreats and teacher trainings with the intention of providing travel opportunities for every yogi. YogaTravelTree.com brings together an informative and fun collection of resources for yoga lovers everywhere!
“Our mission is to help you … find your yoga … anywhere.”
Run By Travel-Loving Yogis
We’re young(ish), fun(ish), wannabe badass yogis who love to travel. And to our horror, we discovered shockingly little information on the internet to help people like us find meaningful and quality yoga experiences. So in walked YogaTravelTree.com, inspired by our love of yoga, travel, and the tree of life and movement that connects us all.
“It’s just one big yoga lovefest up in here!”

“Somewhere in the middle of the Atlantic Ocean between Brazil and Namibia, I found my yoga.”
Having left a much more “corporate” career to launch Yoga Travel Tree, I traded in business suits for yoga pants…and I’m okay with that. It all started on a whim a few years ago when I participated in a small yoga class on the deck of a ship sailing around the world. Somewhere in the middle of the Atlantic Ocean between Brazil and Namibia, I found my yoga. Having made study abroad and international travel my life’s work for nearly a decade, I dreamt up and launched YogaTravelTree.com to bring my passion for yoga and travel together with the hope of helping others find their yoga…whatever that might be to them…anywhere in the world. In 2010, I earned my 200-hour RYT Yoga Alliance teaching certification in Costa Rica through the Marianne Wells Yoga School. Combining that knowledge with my years of experience at the helm of GoAbroad.com, I created this resource, a meeting place of sorts, for the yoga community that brings together yoga experiences, knowledge, and general yoga-lovin’ all into one centralized, easy-to-navigate website. Welcome to YogaTravelTree.com!

“…yoga became my salvation.”
I first came to yoga in 2006 during my first year of college in Missoula, Montana. I took a Bikram-style hot class three days a week to supplement the 40+ miles I was running, and to put off homework just a liiiittle bit longer. Yoga was both a challenge and some quiet time, but that changed in 2008 when I seriously injured my hip. Then, yoga became my salvation. Running had been my escape from the world, and yoga filled the void easily.
I moved back to Colorado in September 2011 to find a surgeon and finally fix my bum hip. Before surgery I started teacher training at Old Town Yoga in Fort Collins to deepen my personal practice and share the love, and during my recovery I became Yoga Alliance Certified in Viniyoga. I’m now happily making a life in Colorado, mostly healed, running up a storm, and stretching out my poor hammies afterword.
I’m so excited to be a part of YogaTravelTree and to help build the resource that will help others find the yoga they’re looking for! You can connect with me on Twitter @focoyogini and via email at Sarah@YogaTravelTree.com.
