If you’ve been around Road Warriorette for long, you have probably heard me touting the wonders of yoga. Feel better! Have more energy! Be more tolerant of your fellow passengers, especially during the holidays! Right now I am even more in the “yoga” frame of mind than normal, as I spent this past weekend in Chicago with my sisters and did several classes at their favorite studio, Imagine. This morning as I perused my favorite yoga blog YogaDork I found that I was not the only traveler doing yoga this weekend. According to NDTV Movies, Madonna also spent the weekend doing yoga. On a plane. Not that I blame her–it must have been very frustrating to have landed and then be stuck on the tarmac for hours. Her fellow travelers were not so tolerant, though.
“It was bad enough having to wait, but then she started doing her yoga in the aisles. After about an hour, a bus came along and took her and her party of about 15 off the plane. The rest of us all had to wait for another two hours,” said a passenger on the plane.
I like the YogaDork comment from Barbara B: “I’m going to do yoga every time a plane is delayed now. All 15 of her entourage got de-boarded 2 hours before everyone else.” Hilarious!
And if you have a minute, check out this amazing video from a yoga studio in New York. I want to watch it every day.
