We’ve got some exciting news for people traveling through Paris airports this summer! A summer airport yoga program at both Paris Charles de Gaulle and Paris Orly airports will be transforming weary travelers through exercise for the mind and body in July and August. The program is happening every Friday and Saturday from July 13 to August 18, 2018. We can’t wait!
The airports offered a similar airport yoga program in 2016 with simple yoga and breathing exercises in the boarding lounges.
This year’s airport yoga sessions will again take place in the boarding lounges of both airports.
Paris airport yoga sessions will help you relax before boarding
Watch free Yoga Nidra animations provided by Tigre Yoga Club to help find your inner zen in the boarding lounge before your flight.
Yoga Nidra is an accessible practice available to people of all ages. It’s aimed at reducing tension and bringing about a greater state of relaxation in a short period of time. It’ll help you ease into holiday mode even before you arrive, or unwind from a busy trip on your way home.
Alongside the animations that you can follow, the sessions include Tibetan bowls. Tibetan bowls diffuse gentle vibrations that resonate with your body. Some people describe the experience like a massage for your cells! It’s a very relaxing sound journey for the whole body.
The sessions are intended to ease tension, encourage relaxation, and abate tiredness from travel.
If you’re traveling with kids (or kids at heart) the program also offers free coloring mandalas too. We know that’ll be a welcome addition for all the traveling parents out there!
