Budget airline SpiceJet celebrated International Yoga Day by conducting practice sessions on all its two-hour flights across the network, a top official said on Tuesday.

The Yoga practice was carried out in collaboration with Sadhguru's Isha Foundation in which 40 trained crew members helped passengers to practice the ancient Indian art, said SpiceJet's Kamal Hingorani, Senior Vice President and head of Inflight Services.

The instructors performed 10-minute capsule 'Upa-Yoga' exercises on the long-haul flights and the participants joined it while seated and helped activate joints, muscles and energy systems which would overcome jetlag, fear of flying and breathing difficulties.

"Having pioneered 'High On Yoga@35,000 feet' last year, SpiceJet gifted on-board Yoga to flyers in India and abroad and uphold India's cultural heritage in a unique manner," Hingorani said.

Designed for all its domestic and international flights exceeding two hours' duration, SpiceJet will offer the initiative on an ongoing basis.
