Stress builds up when we expend more energy than we recover. Yoga works fast, especially for travelers on the move.
In 2004, I created YogaAway, LLC, an international lifestyle brand providing yoga programs, products, and services for the hospitality and spa industries.
A year later, YogaAway co-partnered with Global Hyatt Corporation to create a series of in-room videos, hotel-spa classes, and yoga products for millions of people to recover from the stress of being on the road. YogaAway at Hyatt became a significant part of Stay-Fit-at-Hyatt, an award-winning program for international spas and resorts.
As the exclusive provider of yoga products and services for Hyatt Hotels & Resorts both domestically and internatonally, we offered on-going media and educational programs, in-room experiences, and products that were specifically designed for rest and recuperation — from burnout and overwhelm, to stress-related effects.

YogaAway became the first international yoga brand for the hospitality industry.
My message to travelers and guests: "Stress builds up when we expend more energy than we recover. Yoga works fast, especially for travelers on the move – it can restore balance, shift our state of mind and inspire us to feel whole again. It’s a powerful ritual and respite, and we’re looking forward to helping Hyatt guests snap back from the rigors of the road."
While YogaAway is no longer servicing Hyatt, it's not surprising that ten years later, we still need to reduce stress more than ever!
