5 Yoga Poses to do on Your Flight

When you hop on a plane and fly a long distance – across the country, maybe, or to the other side of the globe – you’re in for a lot of sittingAnd we all know too much of that isn’t healthy.

The good news: Walking 20 feet to the restroom once a flight doesn’t have to suffice as your only workout. Fitness experts say plenty of in-flight exercises are possible – perhaps none better than yoga, which can keep you feeling happy, healthy and limber while you’re in an awfully cramped space.

“The beauty of yoga is that it comes to you, wherever you are, including when traveling on an aircraft,” says Charlotte Dodson, a celebrity yoga teacher who’s based in Australia but has studied in London, India and New York. “It’ll stretch out your muscles, massage all your internal organs, improve circulation and relieve you from any nervousness or anxiety you may experience during your flight.”

In an interview with U.S. News, Dodson shared her favorite in-flight yoga moves – from how to do them to how they’ll help you. To read the interview and get detailed instructions for your next flight, head over to U.S. News by clicking here.
