Interview with the Rancan Sisters – twins Lisa & Adele Rancan: [Their favourite travel destination is…] Los Angeles, California. We are regular visitors to LA. With our business and the love for fitness, the trip is usually based around work or a fitness conference but we always discover something new. Adele was a local at Pacific Palisades for six years with Lisa visiting regularly. It’s like a second home and spending more time there allows you to delve deep into a city to uncover hidden gems. Beaches, mountains, outdoors, the weather, the shopping, the gyms and fitness studios, healthy restaurants and fun bars. Los Angeles has an energy that matches ours.
Their top tip for holidaying in LA
Pack lightly or take an extra bag because you always shop more than you expect. Order one meal and split it – even the healthy servings are way too big. Take lots of small bills for tipping. It’s their way of life and you have to accept it – don’t be the stingy Aussie.
Something they always pack when they travel
Workout gear and running shoes, yoga strap, massage ball and resistance bands (these are small and compact but oh so effective for stretching/toning and trigger point massage after a long flight. Wherever we are, we like to explore the local area by walking or hiking. We usually combine this as part of our holiday.
A destination on their bucket list, for future travels
It will always be a destination which involves some activity and healthy food. There are many great walking holidays, including the great walks right here in Australia. Having already been to The Maria Island Walk in Tasmania, which we loved. We are keen to try out other walking holidays with a bit of luxury.
A travel disaster – or near-miss – which stays in their mind
We were on a Fitness Conference in New Orleans and misjudged the time to get to the airport. We missed our connecting flight back to Los Angeles. We jumped into a taxi and explained to the driver we needed to get a hotel near the airport overnight. We were dropped off at a place which felt like the worst part of town in the middle of nowhere. It was run down, skanky and looked like drug deals were going on everywhere. Everyone stopped and stared as we walked in. The driver himself looked like he was probably in on the deal – dropping off two Aussie aerobics instructors. We really didn’t think we’d come out of there alive. We were scared to death. We had a very strong intuition not to stay there and we’ve never missed a flight since.

You’ve seen it on Instagram and Facebook, you’ve watched it on television “The Living Room” and
“The Bachelorette” with Sophie Monk, here’s your chance to see it in action – Doga. It’s yoga with your dog.
Rancan Sisters, twins, Adele and Lisa Rancan have combined their expertise over many years in health and fitness with their yoga teaching and love of Dogs and have designed a Doga class with poses to limber and stretch with your Dog.
Dogs are natural Doga experts or Dogis, they already have the ability to be present in the moment, love unconditionally and have patience. We can learn from the way they effortlessly move into Doga poses. If you’ve ever observed a dog waking up for a nap, they stretch and lengthen into Downward Facing Dog before they move around. The strong connection between owner and Dog is enhanced with DOGA.
If you’re a regular at Yoga or new to Yoga, the stretches and poses will be easy to do, have fun while you workout with your Dog. Big Dogs, small Dogs, medium-sized Dogs can all participate in a Doga class. There will be constant connection with your Dog regardless of size. Smaller Dogs will be held with poses and larger Dogs will have hand contact. Dogs are intuitive and respond to their owner’s level of stress. The calm, breathing of yoga will transfer to your Dog and result in a calm, de-stressed pet.
Come and watch a Rancan Sisters DOGA class in action at the Dog Lovers Show. You will be amazed how what you thought could be chaos is actually a group of calm, relaxed Dogs enjoying their Doga with their owner.
