Yoga is often considered to be a technique that is only practiced in a quiet, private setting. Many have never considered practicing yoga at the airport, or even on an airplane, but you can, and should! Sitting still for hours during flight travel can numb your body in various areas, particularly in your back, neck, knees and feet. By incorporating simple yoga poses in your plane seat you will ensure that your next flight will be fuelled with comfort and relaxation. What's more you can help to reduce the risk of serious medical conditions like Deep Vein Thrombosis (DVT). You don't need to feel shy either! You will find your once-tight neck, back and knees to be thanking you upon landing!Road trips can be incredible experiences, discovering new places along the road and bonding with your family or friends on the journey, but driving long distances is exhausting on your body! Being cooped up in a confined area for so many hours puts tremendous pressure on your muscles which leads to aches, pains and overall discomfort. You should get into the habit of stretching on your journey with specifically designed yoga poses for road trips. By incorporating a few minutes of yoga at each stop that you make on your road trip you can ensure that your muscles will stay loose, limber and relaxed!Gentle Evening Yoga by Celest Pereira
