If you are worried about maintaining sobriety while traveling, I understand where you’re coming from. Sober Travel can be daunting in the beginning, but there are so many incredible places offering sober retreats and planned trips to support you on your sobriety journey! I’ve been living in Bali for the past two months, and I’m excited to share some of the best sober travel retreats that Bali has to offer in this blog post. Bali is the perfect destination for the sober traveler, because of its deep spiritual lineage and reverence for the divine. It’s a place that is rooted in spirituality and such a humble ground for self discovery. It is one of my top destinations for sober travelers and the dream location for the sober yogi.

Raemona Magazine - How Yoga Can Change Your Life

When I was ten years old, I was innately drawn to yoga as an extracurricular at school. I remember flipping through the pamphlet of “After Four” activities offered and being so excited when I came across yoga. I convinced my mom to let me sign up.

I don’t remember the asanas themselves – what I remember was savasana. At the end of the class, I remember lying down on our backs, the room becoming dark and us closing our eyes, and the yoga teacher leading us to imagine floating on clouds. It felt serene and peaceful.

What I loved about it was that while practising, my turbulent brain felt calm and still, for the first time ever

Vacayou Magazine (US) - What’s Driving the Sober Curious Movement? Wellness!

Alex admits she was a party girl ever since she was a teenager. At 23, she moved to Kuwait, which is  a dry country. It was there that she became obsessed with learning how to make her own booze, networking with others who could get her booze, and blow-out weekends away in cities like Dubai, where alcohol is  free-flowing and legal.
