Ever wondered how one can beat cramps and tingling legs on long flights? Here’s your answer to defeating those infuriating inflight body woes with the simplest of yoga steps! Hong Kong’s flag carrier, Cathay Pacific, recently joined hands with wellness brand, Pure Yoga, for a new inflight wellbeing programme that is built to enhance the passengers’ experience onboard.
Christened, ‘Travel Well with Yoga’, the programme is in line with the airline’s, ‘Life Well Travelled’ campaign and is aimed at delivering some of the best wellness and yoga regimes to passengers travelling onboard its flights. It consists of six easy-to-follow videos, each developed by esteemed Pure Yoga instructors to depict the simplest meditation and yoga techniques to go along with. As per Cathay Pacific Entertainment, Platforms and Connectivity Manager Simon Cuthbert, “We all know that sitting still for a long period of time can be uncomfortable. The need to get up, move and get your blood pumping is important during a flight. Yoga is an innovative way to do this. There are a series of exercises that can easily be done from an economy class seat whilst other moves are suitable for after the flight in your hotel.”
Each of the videos feature founding teacher Patrick Creelman and senior instructor & co-founder Almen Wong that demonstrate flexing routines designed to improve circulation, enhance joint mobility and relax the mind for a comfortable and restful journey. In addition to the free inflight series, Cathay Pacific Marco Polo Club members can also avail a complimentary 10-day trial, 50 per cent discount on studio joining fees, and a complimentary upgrade for access to all Pure Yoga studios across Asia. Sounds like a deal?
