Imagine being on a plane and the person next to you starts doing yoga - including headstands!
This has really made us smile, and we hope it will bring a smile to your face at this start of the weekend too!
Imagine being on a plane and the person next to you starts doing yoga - including headstands! Raad Mobrem, co-founder of WeDo.com was on a busy flight two-and-a-half-hour flight from Los Angeles to Cabo San Lucas, Mexico when a woman in a seat in front of him started to do some yoga. After doing a series of neck stretches, she proceeded to do a headstand on the seat. And why not?! Headstands are proposed to relieve stress, improve focus, improve blood flow to the eyes, increase blood flow to the head and scalp, strengthen the shoulders and arms, improve digestion and help to flush out the adrenal glands, to name just a few potential benefits.
It makes tremendous sense to fit a little yoga session into your flight as sitting still for hours can make the body go numb in certain areas, especially the back, neck, knees and feet. This can result in both stiffness and pain. Furthermore, yoga is great for improving the circulation, which should always be a priority on long-haul flights in particular. We also love the idea of arriving at our destination super-relaxed, deeply focused and ready to be present for whatever we are travelling to :)
