Now there is no excuse for neglecting your downward dog while you travel. A wide range of travel-friendly yoga products can help you arrive at your destination feeling calm and relaxed. Rachel Lehmann-Haupt and Bess Abrahams' compact Airplane Yoga book (GBP10.99/HK$175; www.amazon.co.uk ) is billed as 'an emergency safety manual' to relieve the stress of airline travel, but is just as useful for any other confined, public space. Most of their exercises may be performed discreetly. For example, to release tension, the authors recommend you wring the airline sick bag or a magazine like a towel. Yoga generally does not require special equipment but a non-slip mat is best for poses that require lying down or extra stability. Yoga Mad's Travel Mat (GBP12.99; www.yogamad.com ) weighs 650 grams and folds neatly into an easy-to-pack flat square. If packing space is severely limited, the mini hand and foot mitts called Yoga Paws (below, from US$29.95; www.yogasyz.com ) take up the same amount of space as a pair of socks would and provide excellent stability.
