Flight Yoga

Southasia - - BRIEFS -

In keep­ing with Prime Min­is­ter Naren­dra Modi’s strong ad­vo­cacy for yoga, Air In­dia has re­cently in­tro­duced ses­sions for its new flight crew and pi­lot trainees as part of their train­ing pro­gram. The prac­tice has been made a part of the pro­gram in or­der to in­still a sense of dis­ci­pline as well as help the flight crew and pilots cope with the pres­sures of work­ing on the job. Ev­ery crew mem­ber is ex­pected to re­port for spe­cial yoga train­ing ses­sions ev­ery morn­ing at 6:30 am.

This is a di­rect re­sult of Prime Min­is­ter Naren­dra Modi’s de­sire to pop­u­lar­ize yoga ever since he came into power last year. He has even ap­pointed a min­is­ter to pro­mote the yoga and has also in­sti­tuted an In­ter­na­tional Day of Yoga, set on June 21 by the U.N Gen­eral Assem­bly. On this day next year, Naren­dra Modi is him­self ex­pected to lead a public yoga ses­sion in New Delhi in front of se­nior of­fi­cials and civil ser­vants.
