Your Iyengar guide to yoga poses on planes

The ‘Yoga in the Sky’ guide was created by travel website, which enlisted chartered physiotherapist and certified yoga teacher Dr Christopher Norris and experts from Iyengar Yoga Deutschland.

‘The benefits of practising in-flight yoga are extensive,’ Dr Norris said.
