The sessions saw participation from all the patrons over meditation and asanas before boarding their flight
GVK Mumbai International Airport along with The Yoga Institute curated a yoga session specially for travellers to increase awareness amongst the anxious flyers on the occasion of International Yoga Day. This was the first time that the airport’s terminal building hosted an activity at such a huge scale by the art wall. The sessions saw participation from all the patrons over meditation and asanas before boarding their flight. The activity was spread across sprawling 600 metres and the first one-hour session in the morning brought together not only the passengers travelling via Terminal 2 but also various stakeholders, employees of the airport amongst other members to pause, reflect and relax .
Taking cues and enhancing its cultural experience a notch higher, passengers were introduced to Travel Yoga – a fulfilled yet relaxing yoga session for passengers on the move. The hassle free yoga asanas and kriya session especially curated by the Mumbai Airport and the Yoga institute, focussed on asanas that can be practiced on flight, at office or at home without disturbing the others. Considering the lifestyle and busy work schedule of the stakeholders and employees, the yoga session hosted at the MIAL heightened awareness about how senses are often ignored and how yoga helps in relaxing the mind and body. The session also emphasised on how meditation can calm the senses and demonstrated asanas that are easy, travel friendly and specially curated for travellers who tend to be anxious while travelling.
