If you’ve ever thought about trying yoga, or if you’ve tried it once in the past, then you’re probably aware of how intense a yoga class can be. Unfortunately, many men – and some women – often decide that yoga “isn’t for them” after only one or two classes, or worse, before trying it at all! Today’s guest, Travis Eliot, is a powerhouse yoga instructor. He is one of the most talked about experts in the yoga community and LA Yoga Magazine calls his style “dynamic, transforming, and full of heart.”
Travis’ classes are a perfect blend of physical demand and perfectly meditative. His signature class, Holistic Yoga Flow, is taught at numerous fitness centers throughout the Santa Monica and Los Angeles region.
Travis is the creator of The Ultimate Yogi, a 12-disc DVD yoga fitness program, the CEO of Inner Domain Media and has been featured in numerous fitness publications and media including Access Hollywood, Mantra Magazine, The Huffington Post, MSN, and many more. Additionally, he is an embassador for Manduka yoga mats and also frequently teaches yoga workshops nationally and internationally. His primary goal is to make yoga and fitness as accessible as possible to the growing yoga audience.
On today’s show, he shares his story on how he became interested in yoga, why he is so passionate about helping others get in shape – mentally and physically – and why he believes yoga isn’t just about fitness, it’s a holistic experience.
