good posture & stretches to do on long journeys... tips for nervous flyers...
Whether it's couped up in a car or coach or we are flying further afield, it's a really good idea to be aware of our posture and to regularly stretch and move our joints. Sitting in an uncomfortable, fixed position for a long period of time can result in aches and pains especially in our back, neck and shoulders and even our hips and knees.

I have found, especially as I have got older and have the responsibility of children, I am more nervous when flying than I used to be. This is where yoga can definitely help. Yoga teaches us to become very body aware and we are able to consciously soften our muscles. Together with our breath and visualisation we can relieve tension, lower our heart rate and relax.
