Mission : Meaningful Travel + Yoga Experiences
Meaningful yoga experiences. Anywhere in the world. Yoga Travel Tree was inspired by the simple idea of creating rich, meaningful yoga adventures around the world. We know from experience that both travel and yoga can be transformative experiences for the mind, body, and soul. At Yoga Travel Tree, we bring the two together to offer travel adventures for the young and the young at heart, for the advanced yogi and those just getting started, for the world traveler and the novice sojourner. All are welcome on our yoga adventures.

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. It’s just one big yoga lovefest up in here! So in walked YogaTravelTree.com, inspired by our love of yoga, travel, and the tree of life and movement that connects us all.
OUR COMPANY VALUES
You Only Go Once. That’s our travel philosophy. We design our yoga experiences to help you see, do, taste, and experience as much as possible.
We don’t want to be like everyone else. We want to always be doing something different, something innovative to help our travelers see the world in new ways.
ALWAYS BE LEARNING
We believe that every moment, every situation, every adventure is an opportunity to be learning. Even when things don’t go as planned. It’s the journey that teaches us the most.
BE IN SERVICE
There’s not a better feeling than asking someone “how can I serve you today?“ We strive to treat our travelers, our partners, and each other with a attitude of service. Seva. It’s a pretty awesome sutra.
We want you to know us, who we are, and why we do what we do. We’ll always be a phone call, email, Skype chat, or carrier pigeon away. We’re an open book. Ask us anything.
LAUGH. A LOT.
We take our work extremely seriously, but ourselves? Not so much. Life is too short to be rapped up in dogma or judgement. We’re all about creating communities where everyone feels welcome and a snort-laugh session is just around the corner.
Brooke Roberts – Founder/CEO
Somewhere in the middle of the Atlantic Ocean between Brazil and Namibia, on a giant ship, I found my yoga.
Brooke Roberts is a world traveler and entrepreneur with a bit of a yoga problem. Hailing from a sleepy farm-town in rural Kansas, at 18-years-old Brooke set out to explore the world and never looked back. After rising to the top of the youth travel industry as the Senior Vice President of one of the most successful online resources for travel abroad, Brooke left it all behind to launch her own start-up in the yoga world. After only a year, Yoga Travel Tree has become a prominent resource for yoga teacher trainings, worldwide yoga adventures, and general yoga goodness online. Before launching her own company, Brooke worked for nearly a decade building and promoting international education programs in higher education. And with a passion for teaching and helping others create their dream careers and lives, she founded the Soulful Business Bootcamp where she helps aspiring entrepreneurs launch businesses with heart, hustle, and a lot of soul.

Sarah Monk – Marketing & Content Director
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 Instagram and Twitter and via email at Sarah@YogaTravelTree.com.
