When traveling, a folded mat easily fits in the bottom of a suitcase.
At your destination or at home, if you have carpeting you can adapt your standing poses to practice at the wall. With the anchor of the wall the pose will go deep to the bone, and give added stability. Spongy carpet is no more an obstacle. Just place the end of the mat perpendicular and flush to a wall. Then practice standing poses with your back foot against the wall. Come into Triangle Pose and other poses with the wall as your guru. Press the outer edge of your foot as if you are filling up the space between the floor and the wall.
