Airplane Yoga: Your Emergency Manual for Relieving In-flight Stress by Rachel Lehmann-Haupt and Bess Abrahams


This pocket-size book can be read in slightly more time than it takes to ignore the flight attendant’s rote safety instructions, but it can mean the difference between disembarking in a sluggish, tense, disoriented body or a relaxed, alert, energized one. The authors provide simple tension- and stiffness-relieving exercises that can be done in the departure lounge before boarding (where even a brief asana practice can help a traveler endure a lengthy flight), while in one’s seat or in the aisle onboard, and at that nexus of boredom and frustration known as Baggage Claim.
