Yoga While Traveling from Honolulu To San Francisco

Namaste Everyone,

I mentioned in my blog that I did approximately 2 hours of yoga and meditation en route from Honolulu to San Francisco.  Here is a list of what I did:

Began with long inhalation and exhalation as the plane started to taxing for take-off

Camel in my seat (it is easier and less distracting than cat-cow)

At this time 3 little infants began screaming, a great time to do Sound Meditation

Sufi Grind as we are airborne

Hud Kriya - I had to keep my arm actions restrained as there was a passenger on my left and J.J. on my right, also no loud mantra

Tap my heels - 100 times in seated position, just lifting my heels up and down

Eye exercises - 10 times quick blinking, looking up, down, sides then with your eyes closed move your eyes clock wise from 1 o'clock to 12 o'clock

Shoulder roll, shoulder shrug

Hands and finger exercises, I actually had my elbows slightly bent and opened and closed my hands quickly and forcefully - about 20 times

Sheetali Pranayama and Seekali Pranayama - I counted 10 times each

Stand up and walk to the galley

If there is a space, do Tadasana and gentle forward bend and backward bend

I was also able to do balancing pose by hugging my knees

Back to sitting

Twists in my chair

Bell ringing Kundalini Yoga exercise

Lifting one leg up as high as you can and alternate - I did about 20 times each

So Hum Mantra Meditation

Light Meditation - I imagine 4 different individuals and did each one separately

To end, I did silent chant of Ganesh Mantra.  Even if you are not traveling on a plane, hope the above list would help you with your daily practice.

Sat Nam - Cathi
