Harder still is identifying whether you’re moving towards an exciting new adventure, or away from a situation that’s unhappy but fixable.

The lower oxygen levels cause sleepiness, the dry air makes our skin crispy and immune system weak, and because the air is cooled before being circulated, it is often too cold for comfort. How to do airplane yoga These subtle changes are actually a lot to deal with. Not to mention, sitting in one tiny space without much ability to move causes blood to collect in the legs and feet, which can lead to annoying and semi-painful swelling or even blood clots. But we all love traveling—and posting that photo of the wing of the plane above the clouds—so how can we improve this experience? The answer is yoga. In an ideal world, there would be time for a quick cycle class before …
